ABOUT THE STORY:
In 2018, rookie detective, Kate Garrett lives in the shadow of her near-legendary father Joe. When Joe dies unexpectedly, he leaves Kate half interest in Garrett Investigations, his last case that ties to three murders, a partner she can’t stand, and a legacy to live up to.

Jake Carmedy has lost a partner, mentor and friend, but grief will come later. First, he has a case to solve, one that has detoured from a simple insurance case to a murder investigation. If that isn’t enough, Joe’s daughter seems to want to take her father’s place as his boss.

Each one is working on a different part of the puzzle. No matter how hard they try, Carmedy and Garrett can’t avoid each other…and they might be next on a killer’s list.

SNEAK PEEK:

Mercy waited by Kate’s desk. Except for a little mud spattered on her boots, her black hair, lace t-shirt and leather pants were immaculate. The effect was only slightly spoiled by the fact Mercy looked nervous.

“Thorsen wants to see you,” she said quietly.

“What did I do this time?”

Mercy pursed her lips and nodded toward the docking port. “Take everything. I’ll generate the reports. I’ll be around if you want to talk.”

Brow furrowed, Kate disengaged her eCom from the port and picked up her mug. It was probably not a good idea to walk in to see the Chief of Detectives with a cup of coffee in hand, but the brew had just reached the perfect temperature for drinking. She compromised by taking an extra minute to gulp down half the cup, then poured the remainder in the sink. Wiping a dribble of coffee off her chin she paused outside the only enclosed office in the suite, took a deep breath, and then knocked.

The chief opened the door and ushered Kate in. This didn’t bode well. His usual response was bellowing, “Come in.”

Usually, Kate felt like a shrimp in the presence of her boss. She’d made the minimum height requirement to join the police force and there was nothing wispy or fragile about her. But Chief Igor Thorsen was a giant of a man, a Viking warrior with long red-blonde hair, a full beard and the hint of a Nordic accent. Most would say Igor Thorsen was a behemoth. ‘Large as life and twice as ugly,’ her father joked. Except right now, he seemed deflated.

“What’s wrong, Chief?”

“Kathleen…it’s your father.”

And then Kate knew. The knowledge closed in on her, shutting down her ability to react, to speak, to take a breath. It wasn’t just the Chief who had shrunk. The whole world had suddenly grown smaller.

Intriguing first episode of a new mystery series
By Corinne H. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE™ VOICE
Kate Garrett works as a police detective in a city in southwestern Ontario. She’s in the midst of a drug-related homicide investigation when she gets the worst news possible: her father Joe has been hit by a car and killed. A retired police officer himself, Joe had since turned to running his own private investigation service. Was it his most recent case that put him in harm’s way? Or was this merely a tragic accident? http://tinyurl.com/afgvtmo

Alison Bruce has concocted a complex and very interesting plot and delivered it in a fast-paced story with well-developed and realistic characterization. I look forward to the next installment in this series.
http://tinyurl.com/as44n4a

Bruce writes a novel, which grips your attention from the first page. There is romance, grief and a complex plot. It has grim crime scenes, the unexpected beauty found in the dark corners of a city, vividly realistic characters and an irreverent sense of humour. In other words, it’s a treat for the senses.

This is a great read. Alison Bruce’s Kate Garrett is a wonderful, complex, intelligent and realistic character. Then Bruce surrounds Kate with other quirky personalities. As a result, the reader is along for the hunt while Kate tracks a poisonous predator. ~ Garry Ryan, author of Malabarista.

SNEAK PEEK:

It was no longer raining. It made no difference. Detective Kate Garrett was already soaked and mud oozed over her shoes as she picked through the bushes in the overgrown industrial lot, looking for evidence of illegal drugs.

“Ah, the romantic life of a police detective,” Kate said, echoing one of her father’s favourite sayings. A wet branch slapped her in the face and reminded her that a girl’s life hung on the work she was doing.

Meanwhile, the instigators of this search were wrapped in blankets, each waiting in the back of separate squad cars. She hoped they were in their own private hells, worrying about what was going to happen next. Perhaps the prospect of imprisonment chilled them as much as the grey November afternoon chilled her.

She doubted it. They were probably pissed off they’d been caught.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

While Emily Taylor deals with the dysfunctional Sanderson family at school, seemingly unconnected characters play out their own troubled journeys into the past.

Doro searches for her lost childhood. Alain Reneaux delves into the reasons behind his violent nightmares. The town’s new lawyer, Jacob Finch, suffers from guilt about the heartbreaking death of his wife. And two lonely little girls suffer neglect and tragedy.

As Emily untangles the complexities of the Sanderson children’s lives, the collision of past into future causes an inferno of insanity and death, which ultimately proves how essential family and friendships are to happiness and endurance.

STELLAR REVIEWS:
“Once in a while a mystery comes along that really lives up to its name. Legacy leaves us wanting to read more from its beautifully written opening to its clever closing chapters. A fascinating look at how four lives can collide.”
— D. J. McIntosh, Author of The Witch of Babylon

“The central image of Catherine Astolfo’s Legacy is a wishing well, an ironic reminder of the old saying, ‘Be careful what you wish for’. In this powerful novel, characters who wish to dominate others spiritually end up creating victims not disciples. Astolfo’s searing exploration of the anguish caused by egotism is counterbalanced by her characters’ ultimate realization that friendship and community can overcome evil. InLegacy, Astolfo gives readers an enduring theme wrapped in a gripping narrative.”
— Gail Bowen, Author of The Joanne Kilbourn Mysteries

In Legacy, Catherine Astolfo poses searching questions about the consequences of childhood trauma. Through the interwoven lives of her small-town characters, she explores not only the corrosive effects of abuse, neglect and loss, but also the healing that comes from facing the darkness.
–Kay Stewart, Author of Sitting Lady Sutra
