  • (1888PressRelease) January 25, 2017 - ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Senior executive and business book author Perry J. Ludy today released his first novel in the Tyler West series. The Third Medallion pairs prominent executive Tyler West with his wife, Lydia, and their Jack Russell terrier PJ, as they come face to face with rogue government agents and assassins in search of a medallion in their possession.

    When Tyler and Lydia accept a mysterious invitation to Monte Carlo, it leads to an intriguing multi-million-dollar business deal for Tyler and for Lydia, a new friend who mysteriously and tragically dies after slipping her something equally intriguing: a commemorative medallion that instantly plunges the couple into a high stakes game of corporate espionage.

    As the couple struggles to find the true meaning behind the medallion, they find themselves questioning who to trust: the plodding French detective investigating a string of murders, the retired MI6 agent who seemingly comes to their rescue, or the debonair yet shadowy stranger who appears to know their every move. Unaccustomed to dealing with the underbelly of business, Tyler and Lydia are forced to rely on their wit - and grit - to save their medallion and themselves.

    The Third Medallion is the debut book in the Tyler West series, a set of novels featuring the jet-setting duo of Dr. Tyler West, a prominent African-American business executive, and his business partner wife, Lydia. Tyler has a calm and measured demeanor that serves as a perfect balance for Lydia's insatiable curiosity, and taste for adventure. Together, they uncover a formula that, in the wrong hands, may hold the power to revolutionize world financial markets or drive world powers to war.

    "This book features elements of a traditional mystery set in today's global economic landscape, which makes for a roller-coaster thriller," says Ludy. "I'm excited to debut this series and introduce readers to Tyler, Lydia, and PJ, and set the stage for increased international intrigue in the next novels."

    Readers of action, crime and espionage books will quickly become fans of Perry J. Ludy's first foray into fiction. The Third Medallion is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and CreateSpace. For more information visit the author's website at
