New York, NY, May 15, 2015 –(PR.com)– Author Mike Martin is pleased to announce the release of his new fourth book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series, “A Twist of Fortune.” This new mystery continues the adventures of Sgt. Windflower as he tries to solve crime and experience the joy and the sadness of life in a small Newfoundland community.
Follow along as he feels the sometimes bitter taste of an east coast winter and the unique culinary delights of this part of the world. This story is like the weather in Newfoundland. It can twist and turn at any time.
The small town of Grand Bank in southeast Newfoundland, at the very eastern tip of Canada is in crisis. Their largest employer and a link to the glorious past, the fish plant is closing. Sgt. Winston Windflower’s personal life is also in crisis since his longtime girlfriend, Sheila Hillier is leading a community protest to try and stop the closure. It may be too late for the fish plant, but is it too late for Windflower and Sheila?
If that wasn’t enough, they are being buried in snow and an epidemic of prescription drug abuse that is creating major problems for people and the police who patrol the area. An accidental death on a snow-covered highway leads only to more questions and more problems for Sgt. Windflower and the RCMP to resolve.
Book one of the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series, “The Walker on the Cape” (ISBN: 978-1621418498) was published in 2012. Book two, “The Body on the T” was published in 2013. Book three, “Beneath the Surface” (ISBN: 978-1632631138) was published in 2014.
