What a great evening we had with Marion Leigh at the launch of her new book, Dead Man’s Legacy. It was a great success and it was wonderful to see so many new faces! We also had the pleasure of meeting John Smith from Euroweekly News who kindly sent us some of the photos he snapped on the night.
Even though the event is over we still have plenty of copies of both of Marion Leighs thrilling books in stock.
Dead Man’s Legacy – Sergeant Petra Minx of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is ecstatic when her quirky boss, A.K., orders her to catch the next plane to the Bahamas to meet the legendary Betty Graceby, a retired Canadian singer and ex-Vegas dancer. The complaints Betty has been filing against her rowdy and unpleasant grandson Ken have finally caught the attention of the authorities. But why the sudden interest?
Martin, an investigative journalist with a great nose for a story, has heard rumours of a major new arts centre to be financed by an anonymous benefactor… and Betty’s fortune has tripled since the death of her husband, Joe LePinto, who was killed in a car being driven by her smooth-talking son Cliff. So is money the key, and how far will the Graceby ‘boys’ go to secure their future?
As the action moves from Nassau to Las Vegas and on to the Great Lakes of North America, Petra develops a deep affection for Betty and her simple fact-finding mission becomes much more personal. She uncovers a viper’s nest of hatred, greed, treachery and lust and comes to understand that LePinto’s influence is as pervasive in death as it was in life. The dead man’s legacy is a weighty one…
The Politician’s Daughter – When Emily Mortlake, daughter of a high-flying Toronto politician, goes missing after taking a summer job aboard megayacht Titania, RCMP Marine Unit Sergeant Petra Minx is recalled from vacation to investigate.
Despite the misgivings of her mentor Tom Gilmore, Petra poses as a student and joins the crew of the same yacht. Surprisingly, no one denies Emily was aboard, but the stories surrounding the reasons for her departure are various.
As Petra follows Emily’s trail from Monte Carlo to Spain and then Morocco, she is drawn into the glamorous world of Titania’s owner, the ruthless and charismatic Don León. With conflicting emotions she continues her relentless quest to uncover the truth before it is too late…
