As John Grisham has climbed higher on his political soapbox with each new book, it is only a matter of time before another writer comes along to take his place on the best-seller lists.
That writer may be William Manchee, author of "Death Pact," a story that involves a lawyer, a large trust fund and its 17-year-old beneficiary, and the complications that can arise when the 17-year-old sets out to compromise the young attorney but then falls in love with him.
Add the murder of the young girl's relative, cast blame hither and yon, sprinkle with a suicide pact, and you have a real page-turner.
Like Grisham, Manchee is a lawyer. He has four novels under his belt and recently began his own publishing company. His first novel, "Twice Tempted," is under option to Golden Moon Films of Dallas.
"Death Pact," a Top Publications hardcover edition, 277 pages, ISBN: 0-9666366-3-5, $19.95. The book is available on the Web at amazon.com and others.
