Ventress, LA, October 24, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The good, the bad and the ugly sides of Louisiana politics are laid bare in all their glory and gore in Murder on False River, a newly released crime thriller from book self-publishing firm, Outskirts Press.
The fiction marks the publishing debut of author Martha Gabour Manuel, whose life in many ways mirrors that of her heroine, Savannah O’Brien Devereaux. But Savannah’s life diverges sharply with a series of events that plunge her into a chaotic world of murder, political intrigue and gut-wrenching turmoil.
“Listen to me....” Savannah tried to call out from her hospital bed, but no one could hear. In a coma, she could not communicate the dangers she had discovered as her happily ever after world crumbled around her. While her race for political office had uncovered a web of scandals and lies, it paled in comparison to the darker secrets surrounding her husband Michael. If she could speak again, would it be too late?
Manuel draws on her own background to lend Savannah’s world a stranger-than-fiction realism that breathes vivid life into her characters and tale.
