Gregory C. Randall reads from 12th Man for Death ($14.99). Sharon O’Mara is hired for a simple job; find out who killed the great America’s Cup skipper and technical genius, Catherine Voss. Was it out of envy and greed? Or was it an international scheme to steal her high-tech boat? Catherin’s twin brother wants answers. As the ultra-rich battle for the America’s Cup on San Francisco Bay and the canals of Venice, Sharon must fight to find the truth. But who would kill for the secrets hidden in the technological heart of the lightning fast hydrofoil? Will Sharon discover who is behind this before they kill her? Can she outwit the bad guys and stop World War III? Gregory C. Randall was born on a hot and muggy day in the summer of 1949 in Traverse City, Michigan and grew up on the south-side of Chicago. Californian by choice, Mr. Randall makes his home in Walnut Creek, California with his wife, constant companion and business partner.
