Valda is on trial for murder and it’s the biggest scandal since Profumo.

Murdered singer Renee Porter is the link between a Russian oligarch and a key political player – what she knew was dynamite. Can Valda work out what it is before she pays the ultimate price?

Lawyer Jack Lauder is in Belfast dealing with the case of a young well-heeled Russian woman at the special request of up and coming Labour MP Dustin Stanhope acting on behalf of his ‘friend’ oligarch, Oleg Lagunov.

Valda and her band, The G-String Girls, are performing in Belfast as part of a UK tour. Was it the hand of fate that led her to Jack that night or does she have another agenda? Can Jack ever be entirely sure that Stanhope wasn’t behind this coincidence? Although he does not yet know it Valda and her band mate, Renee, are also tied up with Stanhope and Lagunov, two of the London high society power brokers who quaff Moet in their clubs whilst they decide the fate of others.

When Renee is found dead in the bath, Valda is branded the “jealous femme fatale” and charged with her murder. Jack puts his reputation and his life on the line to defend her; he is fast falling for this enigmatic singer even though he knows she is not always 100% honest with him.

Meanwhile the Fleet Street hacks salivate at the prospect of the Trial of the Century. Valda and Jack have little time to gather the evidence which will save her whilst carefully watching their backs as Oleg Lagunov plays only for the highest stakes.

Readers who enjoy John Grisham and Sidney Sheldon will find this book right up their street.

GREAT REVIEWS for THE ASSASSIN’s KEEPER

John McClements has been getting some terrific reviews for his conspiracy based, thriller THE ASSASSIN’S KEEPER and you can grab your kindle copy today for only 99c (limited time offer ends May 12)

An interesting blend of detective fiction and international espionage.
This book is lively, entertaining and modern. The language is accessible and the pace is very good throughout.
The author is efficient with words, in terms of being able to set the scene well without laborious descriptions.
I agree with the other reviewers about the authenticity of the characters.
Nice read.

 

The author’s forte is in his characters and dialogue. Many authors of fiction are so immersed in complex plots that the characters are secondary and the dialogue is wooden and poorly thought out.
I found the characters jumped off the page and did have a real feel to them – especially the men. I did find Drinda rather intriguing and it was a pity she never continued later into the book.

 

Conflict is vital in any crime thriller and there is no shortage of conflict between these characters. The dynamic between John and Pedro is fascinating. While John is always on the back foot in terms of his relationship with Pedro, he is man enough to stand up to the suave Argentinian and tell him off or tell him to go to hell. John thinks he is merely doing detective grunt work for Pedro, but he wants out, his marriage is suffering and he cannot keep up with running his restaurant and doing Pedro’s dirty work and then he hears something…a name…chills run down his spine and suddenly it all falls into place and it is more shocking than he can ever imagine.

“In some ways it is a ‘rites of passage’ year where you need to prove yourself, reach personal milestones and make your mark on the world. This is a year where identity issues matter greatly – you will be more in touch with who you are and who you want to be and you will be less tolerant of the demands others put on you if they are not consistent with your inner nature. It is not a case of being who you are and looking for acceptance; it’s about being who you are and loving and accepting yourself no matter what others think.”

Following the success of HOROSCOPE 2014 and 2015, Lazuli will again be releasing 12 books: one for each star sign’s horoscope for 2016.

Are you wondering ‘what now’ in terms of love and relationships? How are the Stars lining up for you in 2016? What opportunities can they supply the energy for?

Popular resident astrologer of BBC WM Lisa Lazuli takes her straightening, down to earth approach to astrology from the air waves to the bookshelf with this insightful and motivational book.

SUPERB CRIME FICTION for Summer Reading.

NEXT_OF_SIN_1

BLOOD IS CRUELLER THAN WATER.

A serious of supposed drownings all bear an eerie hallmark and young lawyer Gaby is the first to link them as the handiwork of a ruthless and conniving serial killer; a killer with a mask of respectability and success, a killer she knows only too well.

Recently married and on the brink of partnership at her firm, Gaby should be on top of the world, but she has stumbled upon something which will make her enemies in high places and will tear her personal life to threads. Who will believe her? Who can she trust?

Gaby joins forces with former detective, Robbie Baggio and they race to gather the evidence and bring down the web of evil protecting this serial killer. However the killer’s instincts alert him to danger and when those closest to the Gaby start turning up dead, she must rely on both her legal skills and grim determination to ensure justice is served.

Conspiracy at the top levels of the judiciary and corruption weaving its way right to the heart of family life; there is more to Gaby’s mission than unmasking the murderer.

A thriller that will make you wonder if you can ever trust anyone again and the safe answer…..is NO.

FREE eBook OFFER – Thriller HOLLY LEAVES

HollyLeavesa

If you would like to receive an eBook or Kindle version of my thriller HOLLY LEAVES, please fill in this form.

Seemingly unbreakable friendships are wrecked in a web of deception, lies and infidelity and someone will pay the ultimate price. Nothing is as it seemed and nothing will ever be the same again.

Some skeletons are best left in the closet.

When five friends go to a psychic for a reading; the predictions make no sense at all because they just cannot envision the tragic circumstances in which everything the psychic says will come to pass.

A group of relatives and pals agree to go for a group reading with a mysterious psychic: their emotions range from eager anticipation to nervous excitement and in the case of Sasha a poo-poing and putting it all down to hocus pocus entertainment.

Yesod catches their attention with pin point accuracy about their pasts and inner conflicts; however her predictions about the future appear to some baffling and out of sync with the reality they all know. Even sceptic Sasha is thrown off kilter by Yesod’s apparent inability – or was it rather a disguised refusal – to read her.

The session strikes a chord of confusion and self doubt into Lee and Gemma; but was the reading so elliptical for Lianne. Did she read something into it the others have missed? Why does Lianne go asking pertinent questions about her past while alienating herself from the others?
Michelle is overcome with guilt: she believes she knows that her own dirty secret lies behind Lianne’s strange behaviour. Confiding in Lee, she reveals all.
But is Michelle’s hunch correct or is the truth so deeply buried in the psyche of one of the other friends that even Yesod could not perceive it.

REVIEWERS SAID

“Great entertainment.

Very distinctive and vibrant characters bring this story to life.

Good conflict drives literature and this is full of conflict, guilt, angst and fire.

Who knows what the future holds? In fact, is seeing a snippet of the future a help or hugely detrimental if misinterpreted. The psychic reading attended by Sasha, Leanne and friends sets off a chain of events which bring closure, answers and tragedy.” TOPAZ SAMMONS

“Wow, have just finished reading ‘Holly Leaves’, for the THIRD time and am about to start again. It is incredibly rare for me to read any book more than once but I just loved this. The author clearly has a great knowledge, understanding and insight of her subject, and also I might add clearly perhaps some experience of the darker side of psychic predictions and readings. The book taps into that primeval sense of ‘wondering’ and inquisitiveness that helps to form the survival instinct in us all. But is seeking knowledge of our own futures thus far unlived a wonderment too far???…… we all know what killed the cat!!! Can simply that inquiry of the spirit world redefine our destiny???
Lisa J Gordon knows the answer, to this and many other questions.
The trail of the five principal characters is mesmerising; they jump of the page and follow you through your day, you expect to bump into one around the very next corner…. such is their feeling of reality.
Don’t miss this book; its special. It will certainly make you sit and think before reading your horoscope; or visiting the little old lady with the crystal ball….
LOVED IT”  ROB STEVENS

“I discovered Lisa Gordon’s writing a year ago and I’ve been waiting for her to publish something new. Holly Leaves is a very different type of read altogether. It’s written as a play and can be enjoyed in an hour’s time, that is if you only read it once. I am an author so I always pay close attention to character development and I marveled at the way Lisa was able to bring the characters to life through dialogue; no narrative or flashbacks were needed for me to get a true grasp of what made each character tick. Holly Leaves is entertaining and unusual and deals with a subject matter that so many of us are fascinated with, but know so little about – psychic readings. Hey, give this a try, it may just be one of the best one hour readings you’ve enjoyed in some time. Bravo Lisa!”  RA Quinn

NEW RELEASE – MURDER MOST MOSCOW

Russian Serial Killers

Russian Serial Killers

The very words ‘serial killer’ are enough to strike fear into the heart of any normal person. While many of us are fascinated by this criminal breed and cannot resist the morbid need to learn more about them, we are also repulsed by the various atrocities and horrific acts that they are able to bring themselves to commit.

Amongst the best known serial killers, not just in Russia but in the world, is the insanely evil Andrei Chikatilo, aka the Rostov Ripper. However, there were many other serial murderers in Russia that came before him and many that came after him – some were even inspired by him.

In this book, you can learn more about some of the most evil serial killers in Russia and the unbelievably horrific acts that they committed, taking the lives of boys and girls, men and women, children and the elderly. Take Vasiliy Kulik for example – a serial killer from a wealthy background whose victim’s ages ranged from just two through to seventy-five. Sergei Ryakhovsky was another killer that was not particularly bothered about age or gender, with his victims ranging from children through to old age pensioners.

Another thing that is striking about many of these Russian serial killers is that many of them held down very respectable jobs before deciding to turn to murder as a new profession. For example, Mikhail Popkov was a police officer and was even involved in investigating some of the murders that he’d actually committed himself. Maxim Vladimirovich was an emergency doctor, who used his position to gain the trust of vulnerable patients so that he could rob and murder them. Anatoly Slivko ran his own children’s club and Andre Chikatilo was a university graduate who had held down a number of teaching job.

In this book we look at the cases and crimes of some of the most prolific serial killers in Russia – killers that have carried out crimes ranging from rape and sexual abuse through to murder, cannibalism and necrophilia.

These are Russia’s worst serial killers.
