To outsiders, the relationship between Manhattan
antiquities assessor Annalisse Drury and sports car magnate Alec Zavos must
look carefree and glamorous. In reality, it’s a love affair regularly
punctuated by treasure hunting, high adventure, and the occasional dead body.
When Alec schedules a getaway trip to show Annalisse his
mother's Italian birthplace, he squeezes in the high-stakes business of
divesting his family’s corporation. But things go terribly wrong as murder
makes its familiar reappearance in their lives – and this time it’s Alec’s
disgraced former CFO who’s the main suspect.
Accompanied by friend and detective Bill Drake, Annalisse
and Alec find themselves embroiled in a behind-closed-doors conspiracy that
threatens the reputation and legacy of Alec’s late father – linking him to
embezzlement, extortion, and the dirty business of the Sicilian Mafia. The key
to it all might be a gifted set of rosary beads where Annalisse can use her
skills for appraising artifacts to uncover the truth. She leads Alec toward
answers that are unthinkable—and events that will change their futures forever.
Scattered Legacy is
the third in Marlene M. Bell’s thrilling Annalisse series, which weaves
romance, crime, and historical mystery into addictive tales to instantly
captivate fans of TV show Bones or Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
