Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“A sensually evocative thriller that satisfies and arouses. … Oehler is marvelously versed in the intricacies of perfume manufacturing and history; luckily for the reader, he’s also a compelling writer. In particular, the convincing sex scenes flow with the right balance of graphic language and tastefulness. … A brilliant, engaging twist on the traditional crime novel.” — Kirkus Reviews

"Occasionally, there will be a story with a theme so unique, its subject matter so brilliantly researched, and the writing so crisp, that the story literally sings. APHRODESIA is such a story. An outstanding read." - Robert Vaughan, Writers Hall of Fame

“This modern day mystery has it all -- deceit, murder, revenge … sexual frenzy” —Publishers Weekly

Kurzbeschreibung

"A mystery like no other." Eric Foster had a dream -- to become a master perfumer. While a student at the world's top perfume school, he created an aphrodisiac fragrance of astonishing potency, the Holy Grail of the perfumer's art. His future seemed assured.  But when his creation is tied to a rash of passion-driven homicides, he becomes the prime suspect, facing a charge of serial murder.

Desperate to prove his innocence, Eric reluctantly teams up with Tanya Cole, a forensic chemist who seems born to exasperate him. Their quest takes them to Yemen and France and plunges them into the dark realms of organized crime, child labor, and Third World interrogation. Against increasingly violent adversaries, Eric's only advantage is his extraordinary sense of smell.

Mehr über den Autor

I've spent much of my life overseas, beginning in 1966 with two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nepal. My time in the Himalayan kingdom immersed me in a culture of Hindu gods and Buddhist monks, gave me breathtaking opportunities to trek into the high mountains, and ignited my passion for foreign lands. On the last day of my service there, in a palace converted to a hotel, I married Dorothy Zeller, the lady who is still my wife.

After Nepal, Dorothy and I went to graduate school at UCLA, received Ph.D.'s in geology, and spent our next three years working in Australia. We traveled extensively by Land Cruiser through the harsh beauty of the Outback and, on occasion, spent hours winching or digging our vehicles out of "sticky" situations. Several Australian colleagues provided inspiration for characters in my books.

When we returned to the United States, we went to work for a major oil company, first in research, then in international exploration. The latter took me to about fifty countries and fueled my writing with quirky characters, exotic settings, and cultural contrasts.

Upon retiring from the oil business, Dorothy went to work at the Johnson Space Center where she studies Mars and is a member of the Science Team which analyzes data from the NASA's Curiosity rover. I took a different route and now devote myself to writing.

I've written three novels so far: APHRODESIA, PAPYRUS, and TEPUI.

APHRODESIA is a mystery/suspense novel centered on the world of perfumes. It was a quarter-finalist in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards (ABNA) competition and is my first novel to be published.

PAPYRUS is a thriller that ignites from the spark of discovering secret writing on Queen Tiye's last message to her youngest son, Tutankhamun. It was a semi-finalist in the 2009 ABNA competition and will be my next published book.

TEPUI is an adventure/thriller starring a burn-scarred botanist who treks into the remote Venezuelan highlands in search of a living fossil but finds something far more wondrous -- and dangerous. It was a quarter-finalist in the 2010 ABNA competition and won 1st Place in the 2004 Adult Genre Novel competition of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. It will be published in early 2013.

Readers will soon discover that I have an abiding love of animals, especially dogs. Daisy, a three-legged Bloodhound plays an important role in APHRODESIA. And Bentley, an Old English Sheepdog, adds humor to TEPUI. I have not yet reached the point that Dean Koontz has, where a dog is given its own point of view, but that might not be far off.

Besides animals, I have strong interests in art, history, and science, as well as a thirst for challenging experiences. Writing gives me a chance to combine all of these into page-turners that, I hope, will keep readers thinking long after they finish the final chapter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thought provoking and riveting. 29. November 2012
Von Ronald B. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I recommend this book. John Oehler's attention to detail is remarkable and I found his insights into the perfume industry thought provoking and the characters well thought out.

It is really a treat to find a new up and coming author with so much talent. John Oehler's Aphrodesia is a fun read and I found it hard to put down. I look forward to John's next work, Papyrus.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliantly Seductive 25. Oktober 2012
Von C. Rogers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Frankly, when I read the teaser quote, "This modern day mystery has it all - deceit, murder, revenge ... sexual frenzy," I felt compelled to challenge it. Then I read the book and I have to say the reviewer got it wrong - partially wrong, anyway. Yes, this book has all that, but it also has a brilliant concept brought to life by unconstrained, accessible yet powerfully descriptive writing. When John Oehler introduces a venue, be it the Palace of Versaille or a jail cell in Yemen, he transports us there. We suffer every blow and enjoy every tiny triumph right along with Eric, the focal character, as he frantically tries to extricate himself from a tangle of evidence indicating the aphrodisiac he created is responsible for an outbreak of erotic orgies turned deadly. A seductively engaging first novel - I can't wait to see if this writer is a one-book wonder or has an equally riveting idea queued up for an encore. If so, then John Oehler is destined to join the ranks of such bestselling authors as Dan Brown and Nelson DeMille.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An erotic rollercoaster 18. Oktober 2012
Von Stacey Keith, author of Stripped Down: A Naked Memoir - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read a lot of fiction in this genre (mystery/suspense). Most of it moves briskly but rarely is it well written. This book is not only a page turner, it's a work of art, right up there with writers like Dennis Lehane. I loved the exotic locales and the fascinating tidbits about perfumery. The author does a better job of feeding us information about perfumes and scent than Dan Brown does with his sometimes clumsy mishandling of historical facts. Everything in Aphrodesia rang true to me. And again, the writing is beautiful--haunting even--but it never seemed to compromise the forward progression of the plot.

Plus, it's sexy as hell.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a pleasing read, lingers like a good fragrance 15. November 2012
Von Rodney Walther (Space in the Heart) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the book Dan Brown could have written, except this book is nuanced and not full of hype. With a reluctant hero that's more science geek than swashbuckler, Aphrodesia really swept me along. I totally bought this guy's special skills and passion for the perfume industry, and the backdrop was certainly interesting. Who knew that perfume was such a science or how primal scents can be?

The story follows Eric Foster, a perfume student who gets kicked out of a Paris "perfume college" (okay, it's more noteworthy than that) after being framed for theft of a hard-to-get ingredient. Turns out Eric has developed the perfect aphrodesiac, but his dreams are cut short by the expulsion. He moves to the US, gets a boring job, and is then pursued by the police after helping them investigate some murders. Turns out some crazy aphrodesiac found at all the murder scenes is causing violent behavior. Eric believes someone has copied his formula. The police think it's his.

Assisted by a plucky (and in my mind, very attractive) cop chemist named Tanya, Eric tries to get to the bottom of everything. The whole journey plays out in New York, Paris, and Yemen. I would have loved even more setting in Yemen.

I really enjoyed the writing, and it was clear the author carefully considered every word, almost like a perfumist trying to mix the perfect formulation. Although the book is billed as "sexual frenzy", I think it's sensual but rather tame. Frankly, I liked that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic book. 16. Dezember 2012
Von Ben K. Sternberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Fantastic book. Highest recommendation. Intriguing concept. As a scientist, I particularly enjoyed the science of perfume. I also appreciated the exotic locations based on the author's world travels.
