Schofield is a fearless storytellerMystery Scene Magazine review of Storm Rising
Mystery Scene Magazine review of Storm Rising “You might at first assume that Douglas Schofield has little chance of pulling off his attempt at melding a detective thriller with the fantastic, but you’d be wrong—he does so with great skill, and yes, bravado . . .

Time of Departure review by James Renner
Time of Departure review by James RennerThe Man From Primrose Lane and It Came From Ohio
If Michael Connelly and Audrey Niffenegger collaborated on a story and then sent it into the past to be edited by Rod Serling, that novel would be Time of Departure.

Douglas Schofield’s Time of Departure is the fictional equivalent of a carefully crafted set of Chinese boxes, with a gripping police procedural nested within an engaging character study, enveloped by an overarching narrative that grapples with this world’s essential questions. The investigation undertaken by driven state’s attorney Claire Talbot takes readers to chilling, uncharted territory and reminds us that “whodunit” is seldom as compelling a matter as why certain tragedies occur in the first place.
