It is the dead of winter in the Berkshires. A local man drops a fishing line into a hole chopped in an iced-over pond. The line grows taut. He tugs and pulls up a skeletal hand. What a way to start the New Year! The skeleton found behind the wheel of a Mercedes sedan buried beneath the murky waters, provides the first clue to a colder-than-cold case. The case heats up as Ross and Sal investigate a tangled web of greed, corporate deceit, boardroom and bedroom intrigue, international conspiracy--and murder. The Mosel Legacy was described by Ann Edwards as a "page-turner that goes straight to the heart and the conscience." Toby Bromberg wrote in Romantic Times, "Brimming with suspense and excitement.
