Dominic Palumbo says that the seed of inspiration for his book was planted on a Cycling tour in Vietnam.

One evening, over pre-dinner drinks, our group’s Vietnamese guide recounted his story of how he met his wife. She is a beautiful and elegant Operatic singer and he was immediately attracted to her, although he felt that he was way below her league. After many times of attending her opera recitals throughout Vietnam he found the means and the determination to meet her. Their strong mutual attraction blossomed and it wasn’t long before they fell in love and married.

Tainted Chalice is his first novel.
