Mystery

Michael and Molly Graham are finally settling in to their new home in the coastal town of Blackpool England, and are looking forward to celebrating the Seafaring Days, an event for which the town comes alive in colorful costumes of the days gone past. But trouble rears its head as their friend Dylan Stewart begins to have more trouble than usual with his wife Naomi. Local thug Willie Myners apparently has been supplying Naomi with illicit drugs and filling her head with dreams of running away, much to Dylan's ire. And when Willie is discovered fatally stabbed on his boat with only Naomi as a passenger, the local constabulary looks to Dylan as the possible culprit.

It's up to Maggie and Michael to try and clear their friend's name, and they soon find themselves pulled even deeper into the town's mysterious past as a port of pirates and thieves. Murder, whispers of lost gold, and more than one spooky resident make solving this mystery a challenge for the Grahams, but one they undertake with vigor and excitement.

In VANISHED, the second book in the Blackpool Mystery Series, author Jordan Gray once again takes his readers on a roller coaster ride of intrigue and suspense with his affable characters, Michael and Molly Graham. This series of books is partially inspired by the Big Fish online game Ravenhurst. The series, for which four novels are planned, dives deeper into the history of Blackpool and its residents. Gray breathes life into the characters of Molly and Michael Graham and the result is a loving and charming couple reminiscent of Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man movie series. Readers will fall in love with this romantic sleuthing duo.
