"Different books evoke different reactions. Lyrical books awaken our senses, important books broaden our understanding of major issues, and page-turners transport us into new worlds. In “A Lethal Legacy,” P. C. Zick has managed to combine all three of these areas. With phrases such as, “I married, made love, had children, and buried my relatives, but I did it while covered in a shroud of heavy moisture laden with coldness and despair...”and “...the fog surrounded my car, swallowing it in one bite...” it is obvious how polished a writer she is." S.R. Mallery, author
A Lethal Legacy, a psychological thriller, takes the reader on a journey through Ed Townsend’s twisted family legacy. He complicates the familial connection even more when he falls prey to the siren of his much younger cousin Kristina, who is beyond saving as she plots to get her fair share of the Townsend family legacy. Ed’s best friend and cousin, Gary, struggles as he marries women he doesn’t love all because he knows his father will never accept his homosexuality. It takes divorce, disease, and murder for Ed to realize that acceptance only comes from within once he is ready to face the truth.
