    Years ago, smitten by Hugh Pentecost's series such as Uncle George, Pierre Chambrun and Peter Styles, I was inspired to write an Uncle George mystery. Contacts with Double-Day, frequent publisher of works of Pentecost, were unsuccessful. Below is synopsis for my "Enough!" an Uncle George mystery:


    The people of Lakeview woke up to an unpleasant discovery on this beautiful late Summer morning. At about 4 AM, a group of young men returning from a night out stumbled on an unconscious bruised male in the gutter. The discovery of the victim, later identified as a Cameroon ambassador who had been missing from the luxury Hotel Beaumont in New York few hours after the murder of his friend Mr. Wayne Lloyd, was of no consolation.

    Retired Lakeview attorney, George Crowder, would be joined later by his old Harvard pal, Lieutenant Mark Kreevich of the Manhattan homicide division, to unravel the Hotel Beaumont/Lakeview dilemma. But with the FBI and hungry media all over Lakeview, Newsview Managing Editor and Top Investigative Reporter is kidnapped and cruelly assaulted!

    The people of Lakeview are enraged. And before the puzzle is solved, Hotel Beaumont’s resident manager narrowly escapes death, and young master George Crowder Junior is kidnapped.
