When a mysterious invitation arrives at their doorstep, Lydia suspects Chandler is behind it, but instead, it leads to Monte Carlo and a flamboyant Italian businessman named RP, who offers Tyler a multi-million-dollar contract to promote materials made from spider silk based on a new scientific breakthrough. Tyler accepts, and he and Lydia meet and befriend Dr. Viktor Palank, the scientist behind the breakthrough.
Following the celebration announcing the newly formed company, Viktor sends Lydia a commemorative medallion based on a conversation they had had at dinner. She discovers that the medallion is a replica Viktor created in his lab to protect his spider silk formula. Her curiosity aroused, to Tyler's chagrin, Lydia sets out on a quest to determine the true meaning of the medallion and who or what is behind the mystery surrounding it.
The Third Medallion is the first book in the Tyler West series.

In 1969, Ebony Magazine and other publications featured Perry as "America's Boy of the Year." 'Boy of the Year' was the coveted title that went to the outstanding young man selected annually from among some 800,000 youths as the nation's top junior citizen representing the Boys Clubs of America. For the first time in the 23-year history of the contest, the award went to a Black youth. Perry edged out 1,000 finalists to win the distinction as "the American youth who best typifies juvenile decency". He received scholarships, appeared on network television and was flown to Washington D.C. to meet with the President of the United States and the U.S. Congress.
Perry now makes his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife Lynda who is a marketing professional. Perry enjoys gourmet cooking and has an enthusiastic interest in attending cooking schools, having studied at distinguished culinary institutions including Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.
The Third Medallion is Perry's debut novel and the first book in the Tyler West Series.
