OUT NOW: Where In The Dark by Karen Millie-James
Today marks the publication of Where In The Dark by Karen Millie-James, published by King of the Road Publishing in hardback, paperback, ebook and audiobook similtaneously. Karen’s second novel, Where In The Dark tells the enthralling story of Corporate Forensic Investigator Cydney Granger as she hunts down the origin of two bearer bonds each worth one million pounds, sent to two Holocaust survivors out of the blue. Fearing their lives are once again in danger, they enlist Cydney’s help with the hope that this will bring the demons of their past to justice.
Along with her top team of investigators at Granger Associates, Cydney enters the secretive world of international banking to uncover a web of corruption, blackmail, murder and stolen Nazi treasures. With a little help from beyond the grave, Cydney’s investigation will bring her face to face with an escaped Nazi criminal living under an assumed name whose son is running for the US presidency, and an insidious conspiracy with the power to destroy one of America’s oldest banking dynasties.
Meanwhile, Cydney is plagued with doubts over the unexplained death of her husband, Captain Steve Granger, in Afghanistan five years earlier. Although she finds comfort in raising their teenage twins and manages to find love once again, Cydney struggles to move on from the ghost of her own past. Together with her trusted protector, Sergeant Sean O’Connell, they seek to discover the truth behind Steve’s disappearance, no matter the cost.
This novel is sensationally based on Karen’s own family history and explores the dark secrets of stolen Nazi gold and the hunt for justice and redemption.
