Uncharted Territory,

a new Mad Max mystery 

Wealthy upper East Side Manhattanite, Maxine "Mad Max" Davies has made the decision to help her son-in-law Whip raise the two grandchildren.  He owns a construction company and spends most of his time on sites around the world. Max secures a promise to work in the States rather than take international jobs. Her solution to housing is to lease high-end RVs for the family.

Max finds herself preparing to live in post-Katrina Mississippi, where the land and people have been both been battered. In a vain attempt to have a normal life, she confronts bigotry and outright racism. a gang of escaped prisoners bent on murder, a woman and child kept as virtual slaves and child abuse. 


"Mad Max is at it again--another "uppity woman" who can't leave well enough alone. Just the way I like it. Uncharted Territory is a well-crafted mystery, with a nuanced plot, and plenty to chew on."-- Mollie Cox Bryan, Agatha Award Finalist for A Cumberland Creek Mystery Series
