Someone is always watching…

Derek Flint is a loner. He lives with his mother and spends his
evenings watching his clients on the CCTV cameras he has installed inside their homes. He likes their companionship – even if it’s through a screen.

When a series of crimes hits Derek’s neighbourhood, DC Beth Mayes begins to suspect he’s involved. How does he know so much about the victims’ lives? Why won’t he let anyone into his office? And what is his mother hiding in that strange, lonely house?

As the crimes become more violent, Beth must race against the clock to find out who is behind the attacks. Will she uncover the truth in time? And is Derek more dangerous than even she has guessed?

A spellbinding crime novel from the worldwide bestseller
Cathy Glass, writing as Lisa Stone.

‘Once you start you won’t be able to stop!’
Katerina Diamond, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Teacher

My Thoughts:
This was a good read.
it is a story of stalking. But who is the stalker and who is the stalkee, is that a word?
The main character is Derek Flint, who is an installer of CCTV equipment. But is he what he seems? Not only does he install cameras but sets them up so he can watch his customers go about their business. He may say he does this with the best of intentions; but Derek has a secret in his past, which if people were to know, it would colour their opinion of him.
So Derek is the stalker?
This is a book that has you constantly revising your opinions and trying to second guess the author.
All characters are well rounded and have an important part to play in the story. The writing is superb and has you eagerly turning the pages.
It is a story of the internet, the dark web and the prejudices of people.
I enjoyed this book and I’m sure if you picked up a copy you would to. So go on it would be money well spent.

Lisa Stone

Lisa Stone

As a writer of suspense thrillers I often ask myself what if? What if this happened instead of that? Or why a particular person reacted as they did. So often fact is stranger than fiction and these books start with a fact which I develop. You may be surprised to know, for example, just how many patients experience changes in their likes and dislikes after a transplant operation ~ The Darkness Within. Or how easy it is to look into someone’s home through their CCTV ~ Stalker.

Just a little bit about me. I live in England and have three children. I have always been a writer – from when I was at school, with poems and articles in the school magazine. In my teens I began writing short stories, a few radio plays and novels. I finally made it into the bestseller charts with Damaged in 2007 which I wrote under the pseudonym Cathy Glass. Since then I have had 28 books published, many of which have become international bestsellers.

Thank you for your time, I hope you enjoy the Lisa Stone thrillers.

Dark Pines

Dark Pines

An isolated Swedish town. A deaf reporter terrified of nature. A dense spruce forest overdue for harvest. A pair of eyeless hunters found murdered in the woods.

It’s week one of the Swedish elk hunt and the sound of gunfire is everywhere. When Tuva Moodyson investigates the story that could make her career she stumbles on a web of secrets that knit Gavrik town together. Are the latest murders connected to the Medusa killings twenty years ago? Is someone following her? Why take the eyes? Tuva must face her demons and venture deep into the woods to stop the killer and write the story. And then get the hell out of Gavrik.

My Thoughts:
This is the first in a new series.
Tuva Moodyson is a deaf reporter working for her local newspaper.
She finds herself invoved in a series of murders that have similarities to murders commited in the in last decade of the 20th century.
She finds her during her investigation that everyone and no one are suspects.
A read that is sometimes hard to get into. But when it does it grips you and wont let go.
A dark, claustrophobic and edgy read.
The descriptions of the characters, scenery all add to the brooding presence of the tale .
The tension is unrelenting and I’m eagerly waiting on the next in the series.
I think if you like your crime dark and edgy then grab a copy.

The Gaslight Stalker (Esther & Jack Enright Mystery #1)

The Gaslight Stalker (The Esther & Jack Enright Mysteries #1)

Looking for your new favourite historical mystery series? Perfect for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Rory Clements and Antonia Hodgson…

Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets of London. Can anyone stop the serial killer before more women are murdered? 

London, 1888

Whitechapel is full of the noise of August Bank Holiday celebrations. Everyone is in high spirits until a woman – Martha Turner – is discovered brutally murdered.

Her friend, Esther, a lowly seamstress turned female sleuth, is determined to find the killer.

A young police officer, Jack Enright, takes the lead on the case, and he and Esther soon embark on a professional – and personal – relationship.

When another murder is committed and whispers of a slasher calling himself Jack the Ripper start flowing through the London streets, the search becomes even more desperate.

The police are on the wrong track and the young couple take matters into their own hands, and soon find themselves navigating through London’s dark underbelly.

Can they find the murderer before he kills again? Will anyone listen to their suspicions?

Or will this dark presence continue to haunt Whitechapel…? 

THE GASLIGHT STALKER is the first crime thriller in an exciting new historical series, the Esther and Jack Enright Mysteries, a traditional British detective series set in Victorian London and packed full of suspense.

BOOK ONE: The Gaslight Stalker 

My Thoughts:
I received this ARC from Sapere books for an honest review.
This was a different read for me. I like crime but don’t read much historical fiction.
This book had a bit of everything, crime fiction, historical fiction and loosely true crime. Set in Victorian London in the late 1800’s. The true crime is the Jack The Ripper Case.
The fiction is obviously the investigation of this case.
It is a tale of two stories. The investigation of the case and the story of the relationship between Jack and Esther. Jack is a young police constable and Esther a Jewish orphan. It is a tale of early police investigation and the relationship between Jack and Esther faces racial prejudice. Also the bias against her as a woman.
The writing is of a high quality and this author has set his bar high and he will need to be at the top of his form in future books.
It gives the reader a good grounding of the social history of the Victorian age. Warts and all.
It shows how the poor lived and the rich and powerful take advantage of them.
I believe this is the first in a series and I look forward to reading more of this series as and when they appear.
Well done David and thanks for the story and I look forward to more from you.

David was born in post-war Nottingham, and educated at Nottingham High School. After obtaining a Law degree he became a career-long criminal law practitioner and academic, emigrating in 1989 to Australia, where he still lives.

Combining his two great loves of History and the English language he began writing historical novels as an escape from the realities of life in the criminal law, but did not begin to publish them until close to full time retirement, when digital publishing offered a viable alternative to literary agencies, print publishers and rejection slips.

Now blessed with all the time in the world, his former hobby has become a full time occupation as he enjoys life in rural New South Wales with his wife, sons and grandchildren to keep him firmly grounded in the reality of the contemporary world.
