CRIME - ROMANCE NOVEL
Writer, Mallory Neeve Wilkins, announces the release of her fourth book, HOT~WALKER, Life on the Fast Track: a crime-romance novel. 1960s were the beginning of a new generation of alternative lifestyles and greed, given rise to a life on the fast track. HOT~WALKER is an international story that involves romance, drugs, murder and courtoom drama.
Frannie Harrison, the youngest child of a wealthy, but alcoholic and dysfunctional family, sets out to find her own life in the turbulent 1960's where anything goes. After a while, she finds herself in Yorkville, Toronto's hippie community, filled with drop-outs and losers, druggies and American draft dodgers. Young and innocent she falls in love with an ambitious American who works at the Woodbine race track and convinces Frannie to take a job there. Suspecting that he is in to drug dealing in a small way, she was in no way prepared to witness his violent murder days before they were to be married. Even in her grief, Frannie knows that she must get away, eventually re-uniting with old friends in England in the hope of starting a new life. Six years later the murderer is found and Frannie is recalled to Toronto as a major witness in the trial where she struggles to accept the truth she had long denied.
Mallory wrote HOT~WALKER, an adventurous novel, from the collaboration of places she traveled, the people she met and the experiences she witnessed. HOT~WALKER is a vivid view of the thundering hoofs of the training thoroughbreds as they race to win, injured or with illegal assistance. A Faction Book suitable for screenplay.
Living on the Pacific west coast, Mallory Neeve Wilkins has written three books on Feng Shui Interior Design. Fun Schway, the North American way (reference book); Fun Schway, the House Dressing way (How-to book) and a novel Kundalini Awakens Zeballos.
