The Case of Mary-Rose
A Leonard Stevenson Novel
Norman Reed Paterson
Leonard Stevenson, a retired lawyer, and an indefatigable righter of wrongs, takes up the challenge again in The Case of Mary-Rose, the second book in the Stevenson series. Leonard leads the reader through Central America and the Caribbean as he comes to the aid of the lovely but impetuous Mary-Rose, who is on a cruise through the Panama Canal with Leonard’s wife Shirley. Unsavoury crimes, corrupt officials and political intrigue surround Leonard as he doggedly pursues justice and revenge. Mary-Rose finds satisfaction of a different kind.
Norman Reed Paterson spent his professional life as a geophysicist, consulting to the mining, environmental and petroleum industries, on the way earning a membership in the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame and receiving a number of academic awards. His work involved travelling to 43 countries, some for considerable periods of time. His experiences, and the impressions he gained, influence and add colour to his writing. Now retired, he and his wife Sally make their home in Thornbury, Ontario, but spend time in Central America where most of the action in this book takes place.
