What you will read is a tribute to Vincent van Gogh: a book that invents characters and situations that reach beyond reality to express what might have been Vincent van Gogh’s inner experience on his unique life-journey.Unlike conventional biography, this story takes a bold step of merging reality and fantasy. It is a work that deals with things totally invented, during a period of time in which little is known.For historians, there were periods of time when Vincent van Gogh did not write to his brother (perhaps not to anyone, unless future letters emerge) and there were times when he simply disappeared (going on long, unaccompanied walks). Times of disappearance are one of the heart chambers of the mystery genre.So this story tries to tell what happened during those disappearances but also during the times when he disappeared mentally and spiritually. It is a free adaptation based on immersion into the writings of Vincent van Gogh that has attempted to channel a great artist’s voice both in style and craft.This story, „The Murder of Vincent van Gogh“, had one goal: tell what could have been.Was Vincent van Gogh murdered? That question can only be answered with logical supposition: when it is impossible to prove the truth (or untruth) of a thing then truth matters little. Therefore, what is known as the truth could be a lie and, contrary-wise, what is believed a lie may prove Truth. There is one incontrovertible fact, Vincent van Gogh (the famous and infamous 19th century painter) was shot and died.
