WILMINGTON, N.C. - Nov. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- Linda Maria Frank, author of 'The Mystery of the Lost Avenger', has been chosen as a finalist in the 2016 '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' Awards contest. Frank was chosen as the result of a public voting process.

"It's a thrill to be chosen as a finalist," Frank stated. "It's what writers write for, the ability to say something or to tell a story that readers are inspired or entertained when they read your work. Stories help people to connect."

Letters can really change a life. In Linda Maria Frank's latest Annie Tiller Mystery, the teen detective and her boyfriend, Ty Egan, bump into the intrigue of a past time in American history. A letter from the United States Navy links Annie's great grandmother with a plane crash from 1943.

A packet of letters between great grandmother, Charlotte Wheeler, and her Navy pilot finance, Frank Bradenton, hint at dangerous goings-on in the defense plant where Charlotte test and flies Avenger fighter planes to military bases on the West Coast.

Annie and Ty become code breakers, delving into the heart-stopping world of World War II to solve 'The Mystery of the Lost Avenger'.

Other books in The Annie Tillery Mystery Series include 'The Madonna Ghost', 'Girl with Pencil, Drawing', and 'Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys'.

Reviewers have high praise for Frank's Annie Tillery Mystery Series. One reviewer stated, "Linda Frank might as well be the next Carolyn Keene with her new age mystery luring readers from every angle--suspense, romance, and modern forensics. This is a perfect book for all ages, particularly young readers who might find Nancy Drew a bit old-fashioned. Written in a way where every chapter leaves you with a crisp, familiar image of each character and location."
