A Yukon Mountie. A New York banker. A beautiful dead teacher.
24-Carat Murder is an intriguing blend of quirky romance, cold-blooded murder, and political corruption delivered with insight, skill, and humor in one mind-expanding page turner.
Mack Dearling used to be an American lawyer. Now he's a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He moved from Washington State to the Yukon to get away from it all. But fate has a different plan. In the chill silence of a Yukon night, an explosion kills a well-loved young teacher in Mack's tiny town. Mack zeroes in on a rich New York gold miner and the huge global bank that is financing a nearby gold mine. Scrambling to build a case, he and his partner, Ron Redfox, set aside pesky police procedures but still fail to tackle their slippery prime suspect or his significant friends. Rocketed into a world of international intrigue and corruption, Mack marshals a secret weapon. But can the arsenal in his slingshot fell such a mighty Goliath?
This first novel in the Mack Dearling series introduces a recently-widowed hero desperate to foil a world-class menace. Despite his grim focus, love catches him off guard when Lara Towne, the sexy new teacher, moves into his B & B. As their attraction intensifies, will this strong-minded couple embrace the forces pulling them together, or succumb to the ones pushing them apart?
This intelligent, gripping tale offers an engrossing plot, beautifully-drawn characters, and a staggering conclusion which will leave the reader richly satisfied, yet longing for more.
