What kid wouldn’t be overjoyed to inherit a fortune from a long-lost aunt? Think of all the candy and video games you can buy with that kind of scratch! But when 13-year old Gerald Wilkins lucks into a gigantic inheritance, he quickly learns that there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
It turns out that there are some pretty substantial strings attached to this unlikely windfall—including a letter implying that Gerald’s aunt was murdered, and imploring him to track down the killer. Even more disturbing is Gerald’s realization that the killer may actually be tracking him.
Now this Australian teenager is off to England for the adventure of a lifetime. And as the investigation gets more dangerous at every turn, Gerald’s just hoping he’ll live long enough to enjoy life as a newly-minted billionaire.
Two more adventures await new fans in the action-packed Archer Legacy adventure series, including the soon-to-be-released The Mask of Destiny. Get a sneak peek at excerpts from both books in today's special free edition.

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Richard recommends:
The tale of Bilbo Baggins and his journey there and back again is a yarn that covers so many aspects of great story-telling. It is a quest, a memoir, an adventure, a tale of temptation and bravery, a fish-out-of-water saga of a stout fellow who only discovers his inner-strength when faced with great challenges. It is a book that rewards re-reading several times through life, as there are new treasures to be found in the prose each time it is visited.
