QUOTE from book:
THE BRUTUS GATE - A Bailey Crane Mystery (BOOK 3 in the series) - "Lake's face was the face of a memory my mind carried, a face with no discernible sign of hope, a face with no sign of soul."
From the Author
Always intrigued with the stories of Rome and the fall of its great empire, it was easy to settle into this title for the third book in the 'Bailey Crane Series.' For awhile my thought was maybe the title was a bit too 'cutesy.' Yet, the farther my writing took me, with all the political corruption, the murders, rapes, and love affairs, the title just had to stay put.
Three of the 'Bailey Crane' books are inspired by actual crimes. "The Brutus Gate - A Bailey Crane Mystery" (third in the 5-book series - Book 3 of 5) was inspired only by my tedious mind. It is my hope that this bit of information will not stop you from reading the book. Note: There is a natural progression of Bailey's life (aging, loves, circumstances) over the five books in the series, but each book can be read independently of the other.
