The Politician’s Daughter


When Emily Mortlake, daughter of a high-flying Toronto politician, goes missing after taking a summer job aboard megayacht Titania, RCMP Marine Unit Sergeant Petra Minx is recalled from vacation to investigate.

Despite the misgivings of her mentor Tom Gilmore, Petra poses as a student and joins the crew of the same yacht. Surprisingly, no one denies Emily was aboard, but the stories surrounding the reasons for her departure are various.

As Petra follows Emily’s trail from Monte Carlo to Spain and then Morocco, she is drawn into the glamorous world of Titania’s owner, the ruthless and charismatic Don León. With conflicting emotions she continues her relentless quest to uncover the truth before it is too late…


A most exciting and pacey read. I was gripped from the beginning
Merle King – Author of Silver and Time

An absorbing adventure with lots of local colour and subtle undertones.
Francisco Miranda de Rojas – Spanish Author

Excellent read – This book was recommended to me by my daughter, and I should like to thank her very much!  This is an excellent read, holding your attention all the way through.  Petra Minx is a great heroine and I look forward to reading more of her exploits.  I love the Costa del Sol and was certainly transported there by this book.  I have no hesitation in passing on my recommendation to others – Robert Hall
