CONDUCT IN QUESTION
Your book club will love the latest legal thriller set in Toronto by Mary E. Martin. A murder plot, a money laundering scheme and a love story together, propel the reader through major questions for the protagonist lawyer, Harry Jenkins, such as:
How much money is enough? How do we find the courage to live the lives we really want? If we turn a blind eye to fraud, are we not complicit?
Much more than just another mystery story, this novel will get you thinking about these issues and many more.
In the following scene, the protagonist, Harry Jenkins, a Toronto lawyer comes face to face with the Florist.
"Harry looked up into the Florist's eyes. True monsters had no special quality, he thought. The man possessed no strange and frightening aspect, setting him apart from the rest of humanity. If anything, he exuded charismatic charm. But Harry could see at a glance that some fundamental building block of a human being was absent. Having no centre, the Florist was a jumble of sharp-edged jig saw pieces from a dozen different puzzles and where humanity should have been, Harry saw only the chaos and banality of evil. Harry had come unarmed."
This novel is available in selected Chapters, Indigo and Coles stores and at most on line bookstores.
Mary E. Martin is signing books at six Coles and Chapters/Indigo stores the week of the 12th of December. For a list of times, dates and locations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Robert Denson of Sunpiper Press Book Reviews has compared Martin's Conduct in Question to the work of well established writers such as Patricia Cornwell, Walter Mosley and John Grisham. Not only can she hold her own with them, but her ability, at times, outshines them all. A copy of that review is available by emailing email@example.com
Should a reading group wish, Mary E. Martin would be delighted to attend a meeting to discuss Conduct in Question. Any interested group should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The first book club member sending an email enquiring about availability of the author to attend such a meeting, will receive a free signed copy of Conduct in Question.
Look forward to hearing from you!
