Share Article

Latest installment of the Darmon mystery series, The Forth Contention is actually a prequel to The Patriote Proposition and Night Wind to Bahia (see PRWEB February 5, 2004). All three books are published by Port Town Publishing and may be found in most major bookstores.

On the eve of the 1825 Treaty of London, William and Elizabeth Darmon are caught in a desperate contest with the rival Forth family to recover the deed to their Mayfair Manor. After the body of a Forth relation turns up on their doorstep, the intrepid pair journey to Egypt, Greece and Turkey attempting to save their home and allay a sinister plot from sabotaging the Greek revolution. Determining the killer’s identity will challenge even the most seasoned mystery reader’s deductive abilities.

Author Thomas Thorpe is the Project Manager of NASA’s highly successful Mars Global Surveyor Mission – a spacecraft that has orbited Mars for over seven years, having returned more than two hundred thousand images of the planet and relayed pictures from the Mars Exploration Spirit and Opportunity Rovers.
