Author’s review

Most importantly the editing job was well done, but Virginia seemed genuinely interested in my project.

I have used FirstEditing before and was pleased with the results.

This project was my 2nd suspense/thriller novel "The Torch is Passed: A Harding Family Story" and has been published through BookBaby and is now taking orders!

A short introduction

First there was The Pharm House, Finalist in the Medical Thriller category of the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards, where readers met Nicholas Harding and his daughter, Andrea. Now comes the second Harding Family story. In the exciting new thriller, The Torch is Passed, Andrea has just graduated college and her world is turned upside down when her father, Nicholas, and her uncle, Michael, are shot in a surprising and puzzling attack. As the only family other than her paternal grandmother, it falls to Andrea to not only investigate who would want to kill her father and uncle, but also to oversee Harding Industries.

The youngest Harding soon finds herself surrounded by a bevyof intriguing new friends and helpers after she is also violently attacked. Suspicion is cast on a short listof family friends and colleagues, including Don Marshall, with a shady past including an incident that also involved Andrea's father. Then there is MarcusRicci, widely believed to have ties to the New Jersey mob. Also on the suspectlist are the Oakes brothers, Carlton and Jefferson, who run Oakes Industries along with their silent partner and cousin, New Jersey state senator Schuyler Colfax. They recently made a seemingly irrational attempt to purchase Harding Industries and were rebuffed by Nicholas.

Along with her new allies, including an abrasive, but loyal,attorney and an eccentric southerner with more money than God and an intriguing background in international espionage, Andrea urgently seeks answers why anyone would want to kill her entire family-- grows up along the way and seeks her revenge.
