Our lives intersect with those of others without advance warning of the consequences. Sometimes, the effects can last a lifetime. Three lives suffering loss due to murder and betrayal intersect in early 1900 Chicago. It’s not safest place to hide from life, loss, or memories.

“Where is Harry?” Published May 2008

Young Mary's life takes her into a world of murder, hatred, madness, and a betrayal of the worst kind. Her only prayer throughout the horror is that her brother, who she has never met, will rescue her.

“Claire: New York Heiress – Chicago Madam” Published October 2008

After the loss of everyone she loves, other than a circle of school friends from Paris, Claire is forced to run for her life. In Chicago her life intersects with Mary's in what initially seems an inconsequential way.

“Richard: It’s In The Blood” First time in print was in this trilogy volume. Later it was published as a stand-alone novel for those who had read Harry and Claire.

Richard's life is impacted by the murder of his father, and the betrayal by her mother. After relocating to Chicago, he finds he cannot outrun his past.

About the Author

Raleigh artist, Linda Rae Blair was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. She has used her knowledge gained during extensive travel throughout the United States and her passion for art, history, mysteries, and scenery to create compact novels with rich characters so real you'll miss them when they're gone and places you'll swear you've been. She has lived in Seattle, WA, Monterey Bay, CA, Cincinnati, OH, and retired five years ago in the Raleigh, NC area.
Her love of history is well-earned. She is a direct descendant of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins of Mayflower fame. She is also descended from a strong line of Scots-Irish immigrants to America in the 1700s. She even had a great uncle who was robbed by the infamous outlaw Belle Starr.

Her Scottish love story, “Elusive”, spans 200 years of Scottish history and intrigue via setting in 1700s Scotland and early 1900s Paris and Scotland.

An avid reader who inhales novels by Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown and others in the romance/mystery genres, her imagination takes you to a variety of places and times all in the same story.

Her travels to the beautiful southwestern states inspired her more modern historic romance combined with mystery, “100 Years of Brotherly Love”.
Her mystery series, The Preston Andrews Mysteries now has 12 published entries, beginning with “Hard Press’d” which now claims over 50,000 downloads and, most recently, the softcover print version of the series in compilation form.

Ms. Blair has spent many happy hours in Virginia Beach during off-season, when the winds blow cold and hard and the salty air whips at the weather-protected palms. This is the locale chosen for her Preston Andrews series. Locals and visitors alike find many familiar frames of reference in this series.

Her homage to her love for Poirot is via her teeny tiny mystery, “The Board Game Murders”.
Her newest series is aimed at a slightly younger and more female audience from that of The Preston Andrews series but begins in the backstory in “Pressing Reunion”.

The Samantha Hartley, PI series is lighter and features a very young and not terribly experienced private investigator just beginning her career—with a slight assist from the Director of the FBI.

One thing is for certain, she combines her passions into stories interesting to history buffs, travelers, and lovers of romance and mystery.
