The three books are:

The Legacy of Secrets

The Legacy of SecretsFamily secrets lie hidden within the ancient walls of King’s Priory Manor on the Dorset coast. Plagued by nightmares and doubts about his own future, Colin Portesham tries to unearth those secrets. But the more he discovers, the more he realises that a terrible fate hangs over himself and those he loves.

Something mysterious happened to his grandfather, James Portesham, a wartime fighter pilot. Whatever it was, it now affects the Portesham family in the new millennium and there is nothing Colin can do to stop it. Someone he loves must die and someone else must suffer a terrible injury. And the cause of it was set in train long ago.

The Legacy of Conflict

When circumstances throw them into close contact, their differences threaten to tear them apart. And yet, in the face of a deadly danger, they realise they need one another. Can they overcome their mutual dislike in time to save their lives?

The Legacy of Shame

The Legacy of ShameIn the sleepy Dorset village of Hampton Warlock, Douglas Hadleigh mistakenly opens a letter addressed to his wife. The contents reopen old wounds and bring back memories of a tragedy from the past.

So begins an emotional journey that will take Douglas around the world to Australia and, later, see him embark on a hazardous trek into the Amazon rainforest. Along the way he will learn more of his wife’s secret past as well as the horrors experienced by a young girl lost in the heart of the jungle.
