THE POLITICIAN’S DAUGHTER is the first book in the Petra Minx series of adventure thrillers.
Set in the Western Mediterranean, Canadian Marine Unit Sergeant Petra Minx is called in to investigate when politician’s daughter Emily Mortlake goes missing after taking a summer job aboard a megayacht.
As the action moves from Monte Carlo to Mallorca, then to the Costa del Sol and Morocco, Petra is drawn into the glamorous but dangerous world of Don León, the yacht’s owner. Ruthless and charismatic, he exploits everyone and everything for his own ends.
Underpinning the story is the network of relationships Petra develops with a colourful cast of characters, in particular with Don León.
He is not simply a ‘stage villain’ but a complex character and Petra is both attracted and repulsed by many aspects of his personality. Throughout the novel, she struggles to maintain her integrity as a professional and as a woman.
Available in Bookworld, local English booksotres in Spain and Gibraltar, Blackwells in Oxford and other bookstores in the UK, through Coles of Yarmouth in Canada as well as through Rudling House, Amazon and Kindle as an e-book.
British-born author Marion Leigh will present her novel at a Jubilee Party and Book Signing today Friday June 1, 6–8pm at Glitterati Book and Gift Shop, Centro commercial Diana, Estepona.
