Overview

Of all the different types of mysteries, the 'locked room' type seems to be the most baffling.

Author Gene Grossman tackled the genre head-on in his "The Magician's Legacy," number 7 in the Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries, and here in number 14 of the series he attempts to present it in another form - a boat at sea.

In this case, the victim is alone on his boat, half way between Catalina Island and Marina del Rey California when he makes a distress call to the Coast Guard.

After his first few words are spoken, a gunshot is heard and the transmission ends.

An investigation reveals that he was alone on the boat at the time and that local radar units in the Coast Guard station and nearby Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) show absolutely no other boats in the vicinity of the victim's at the time of the gunshot.

The authorities rule the death a suicide, but Peter Sharp's legal ward Suzi, an adorable little 13-year-old computer whiz, feels in her heart that it's murder. She knew the victim, because he was one of Peter Sharp's boat neighbors in the marina.

If you're a true mystery fan, you'll enjoy trying to match wits with a 13-year-old and see if you can beat her to finally solving this 'locked-boat' mystery case.

Meet the Author

GENE GROSSMAN was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in the North side neighborhood of Albany Park, where he attended Hibbard Elementary and Von Steuben High School.

He pursued majors in psychology, chemistry and mathematics at Wright Junior College, Roosevelt University and Illinois Institute of Technology - all the while working his way through high school and college by playing piano in clubs on Chicago's then-famous "Rush Street."

After moving to Southern California, he worked his way through law school playing piano in night clubs and appeared as a musician in seven major motion pictures.

While slowly building his law practice, Gene purchased a truckload of movie equipment he rented out to film production companies and then started his own production company which over the years produced more than 50 educational programs on subjects ranting from Boating and Celestial Navigation, to legal subjects (Depositions, Bankruptcy, etc.) Sign Language Instruction and many more.

Always having been interested in boating, getting divorced prompted him to buy and move onto a 45-foot Chris Craft motor yacht in Marina del Rey California,.

Years later, while serving as navigator on a yacht delivery from the U.S. to Tortola, Gene wrote his first book, "Celestial Navigation for Dummies" (before the popular series of 'Dummies' books was created). He used his own production equipment to shoot a video on the subject Celestial Navigation - "Sextant Use and the Sun Noon Shot" and unintentionally started the nautical video industry in this country.

Over the next few years he followed that first title up with more than 50 other educational DVD titles, all displayed on his production company's website at www.MagicLampDVDs.com.

Having moved on from doing scripts for his video productions, Gene turned to writing fiction, and now spends most of his time in the marina on his new boat, where he created the 15-book series of 'Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries,' all now available both in print and as eBooks at Smashwords via www.LegalMystery.com

In addition to the 15 Peter Sharp novels, Gene compiled a group of fiction and non-fiction titles that he has either written or edited for others, plus some classic stories: the publishing company he formed (www.MagicLampPress.com) now has more than 60 books in print.
