The first thriller from Birmingham-born author Marion Leigh

Feisty sergeant Petra Minx goes undercover in The Politician’s Daughter

The Politician’s Daughter is Marion Leigh’s first thriller featuring the feisty Petra Minx, a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Marine Unit. Now, four years after first publication, Matador is taking over the distribution from Marion’s original publisher Rudling House. Dead Man’s Legacy, the second book in the Petra Minx series, was published by Matador in 2015.

“Now that Matador, the publisher of Dead Man’s Legacy, is distributing The Politician’s Daughter, it should be easier for fans to obtain both books. Although part of a series, they are designed as stand-alones and can be read in any order,” adds Marion.

In The Politician’s Daughter, Emily Mortlake, the daughter of a prominent Canadian politician, disappears after taking a summer job aboard megayacht Titania. RCMP Marine Unit Sergeant Petra Minx is recalled from vacation to investigate.

Faced with a strict ban on publicity, Petra decides to go undercover. She applies for a hostess position on Titania, the last place Emily was seen. There, Minx discovers her old friend Carlo, who now works with Interpol, posing as a bartender. Surprisingly, no one denies Emily was aboard the yacht, but the stories surrounding the reasons for her departure vary...

This well-choreographed adventure, set in the Mediterranean, features a lively young female protagonist and an array of colourful characters. Review copies are available on request, and Marion is available for interview.
