Marion Leigh’s “Dead Man’s Legacy” is set in the Caribbean


English writer Marion Leigh is in Marbella, Spain, to celebrate the launch of , the second novel in her Petra Minx series of adventure thrillers. Dead Man’s Legacy takes place in the Bahamas. The first book in the series, The Politician’s Daughter, was published in 2011. On February 4, 5:00-8:00pm, Leigh will be signing books at Bookworld Puerto Banus.

“My main character, Petra Minx, is a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Marine Unit,” says Marion. “Working on special investigations which involve high-profile Canadians takes her to faraway places and into dangerous situations.”

In Dead Man’s Legacy, Petra is ecstatic when her quirky boss, A.K., orders her to catch the next plane to Nassau to meet the legendary Betty Graceby, a retired Canadian singer and ex-Vegas dancer whose fortune has tripled since the death of her husband, Joe LePinto. The complaints Betty has been filing against her obnoxious grandson Ken have finally caught the attention of the authorities. But why the sudden interest?

As the action moves from the Bahamas to Las Vegas and on to the Great Lakes of North America, Petra develops a deep affection for Betty and her fact-finding mission becomes much more personal. She uncovers a viper’s nest of hatred, greed, treachery and lust and realizes that LePinto’s influence is as pervasive in death as it was in life. [. . .]

Birmingham-born Marion Leigh studied languages at Oxford University, worked as a volunteer in Indonesia and enjoyed a successful career in translation before turning to writing. Her print and e-books are available through major retailers worldwide.
