SEATTLE (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
Author William Jordan releases a sequel to his absorbing humorous caper, “Twice Dead.” In this new sequel, “Bloodstone Island” (published by Xlibris), readers follow the misadventures of two elderly curmudgeon bachelors at a country club in 1948. This novel is packed with devilishly-clever wit, exciting suspense and baffling humor.
Readers are introduced to Sydney Wadsworth, founder of an exclusive country club in upstate New York, and his inseparable friend, Toby Worthington. Toby comes to the aid of a club member, Harriet Bartholomew, a thrice-married widow who claims Bloodstone Island off the coast of Maine as her rightful inheritance. Sydney joins the fray and becomes cozy with Abigail Underwood, justice of peace in Port Henry, Maine. Together, the foursome discovers her island is occupied by an international criminal bringing stolen works of art by the Nazis into the United States. They find themselves in ruckus-fueled adventurous trip embroiled in a mystery that threatens their very lives.
“Bloodstone Island” is a hilarious and stirring escapade driven by incorrigible yet oddly likeable characters. Packed with hilarity, action and thrills, this eccentric novel is bound to keep readers glued from first page until last.
