COVER REVEAL - The First Lie by A.J.Park


                                                                BOOK BLURB

We’ve all had sleepless nights thinking about it.
You’re home alone. Someone breaks in.
In defending yourself, you end up killing the intruder.
Now you’re the one the police want.

That is the situation that criminal barrister Paul Reeve arrives home to find.
His wife Alice stands in the bedroom, clutching a bloodied letter opener in her shaking hand.

“What have you done, Alice?”
“I didn’t have a choice…”

We would all believe the person we love most.
But would we all make the same choice Paul and Alice make next…?

Jane’s son Russ had seen a mysterious blonde woman at the house.

An SUV keeps showing up. Jane feels watched and under threat.

Then John’s abandoned car is found with blood on the steering wheel and Jane fears the worst. And there is a revelation that will make her question her own sanity.

Is she being framed? Can she even trust herself?

HOW FAR WILL SHE GO TO SAVE HER FAMILY?



                                                         ABOUT THE AUTHOR


 I started out wanting to make movies. My brother and sister were my first stars. After attending the New York Film Academy, I worked in showbiz for a little while and wrote my own screenplays. I always wrote prose fiction, too, and before I knew it, I had more books than movie gigs. Hey — Ridley Scott says writing novels and directing films are the “same thing”, and this way, I get to stay home.

I’ve had a lot of jobs. Construction, bartending, waiting tables — even weird things like cleaning tombstones and working for a non-profit. I’m fortunate to now write full time. And I’m lucky to have had my books hit the top 30 on Amazon Kindle US.

My fifteen novels are below. More coming soon. Thanks again, and please keep reading because without you I’m just a guy sitting alone in his basement..

BLOG TOUR REVIEW : The Killer You Know by S.R.Masters


Some of us are lucky enough to form lifelong friendships when we are younger but more often or not friendships drift apart once we leave school and our lives go in different directions.

Adeline hasn't seen Will,Steve,Jen and Rupesh for fifteen years so she is equally surprised,shocked and intrigued when she receives an email inviting her to a reunion of her old gang. Adeline returns to the small,isolated village of Blythe where she lived during her late teenage years for the reunion - except Will doesn't show up.

As the group catch up and reminisce they suddenly remember a comment that Will made one night when they were younger. A comment that at the time they had all thought was strange but very funny.

`You need to kill at least three people to be a serial killer, right? So that's what I'll do`

Out of curiosity they search online for crimes that match the murders that Will described and are shocked to discover two murders that exactly match. Could their old friend really be a killer? Was he really being serious all those years ago?

Things take a serious turn after the gang start searching for Will, they start receiving mysterious letters,then someone close to them is seriously hurt. Someone is playing a sinister game and if the game don't play along....one of them could be next.

The Killer You Know is divided into four parts and flips back and forth between the gangs teenage escapades in 1997 - 1998 and their search for Will in 2016. The chapters are quite long and are voiced in the present day by Adaline in the first person perspective and in the past by all the members of the gang in the third person perspective. The five main characters were realistic and each one of them irritated me at one time or another as the stories in each time frame unfolded. I couldn't say that anyone of them was very likeable but I can definitely say that there was one of them that I definitely didn't like,not even one tiny little bit. I loved the vivid descriptions of the places around Blythe where the gang used to hang out. The fields of maize,the bridge and the train tracks all sounded like places I would have enjoyed exploring when I was a teenager. Places that were fun to explore during the day but had a creepy,sinister atmosphere once it got dark.


This is a very well written part mystery/part coming of age tale of young love,jealousy,friendship,manipulation,deception and people and things not always being what they appear. There is quite a few twists and turns and the story defiantly keeps the reader guessing throughout. Actually, even now I'm not 100% sure who the killer was. I really enjoyed this enthralling debut story and will definitely be reading more books written by this author in the future.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW : Deadly Secrets by Omj Ryan



Superstar radio host Marty Michaels has spent the last twenty years using his vast fame and power to destroy the lives and careers of celebrities and politicians. It didn't matter how flimsy the evidence against the person was,as far as Marty was concerned,there was no smoke without fire.Not once did he spare a second thought for the many lives he ruined in the process.

Marty revels in his perfect life and believes he is untouchable but he swiftly discovers that power comes at a price after he wakes up in a hotel room with a raging hangover and the dead body of a young woman in his bathroom.

Marty has been set up and finds that the hunter had become the hunted.Not knowing who he can trust,or where he can turn and with the media world he once ruled now baying for his blood,Marty finds himself in a desperate fight against a powerful criminal network as he tries to save his life,his job...and his life.

This fast paced,adrenaline ride is written in short,snappy chapters,many of which end on a cliff hanger giving the reader a very bad case of Just one more chapter syndrome. The story is voiced entirely from Marty's perspective. I felt a number of conflicting emotions as I read his desperate and at times bumbling attempts to clear his name. He was a complex character who could be very arrogant and had a massive sense of his own importance. But he also had some redeemable qualities. I found myself torn between thinking that he deserved everything he was going through and feeling sympathy for him. The secondary characters were a mixed bunch of diverse,realistic personalities and the story was so well written and intricately plotted that I suspected each one of them at sometime during the book of being involved in the scheme to ruin Marty's life.

Deadly Secrets is one hell of a roller coaster ride that holds the reader in a vice like grip from the very first page. You find yourself pinned to your comfy chair,captivated by the many twists and turns,frantically turning the pages and unable to put this enthralling thriller down. I would love to watch a film adaptation of this book. It deserves far more than five stars. Highly recommended by little old me.

Blog Tour Review - The Suspects by Katharine Johnson



Who could possibly have guessed that things would go badly wrong when five virtual strangers decide to buy a house together

.All Emily,Stuart,Zac,Imogen and Zanthe have in common is that they are trainee Journalists who work for the same company. Everything starts off ok and they seem to be getting along well enough as they learn to live with each other's different quirks. But then their lives are plunged into a living nightmare after they decide to throw a New Years Eve party.

A couple of days after the party, they discover a dead body in their basement and make the unwise and immoral decision to cover up the discovery.

As time passes and tension and mistrust spreads throughout the house cracks begin to appear in the relationships between the housemates.

What happened in the basement? Who was the dead body? Was one or more of the housemates a killer or was it someone else and could the housemates lives be in danger?

The Suspects is a enthralling,twist packed thriller/ mystery that reminded me of the brilliant 1995 movie Shallow Grave. The reader is given the opportunity in the early chapters to get to know the individual diverse personalities of the five housemates. As the story unfolds it soon becomes clear that none of the complex characters are who they appear to be. The story was voiced mainly by Emily although there was also chapters that were voiced by other characters. It is set towards the end of my favourite era,the 80s and there was references to the pop culture of that time scattered throughout the book.

I loved this exceedingly,well written page turner that had me hooked in from the first page and frantically turning the pages eager to know the truth. Once I started reading this twisty thriller,I honestly didn't want to put it down. There was secrets,lies,deception and betrayals and the story kept me guessing throughout. Worth far more than five stars,this book is definitely going to be one of my favourite reads of this year.

Blog Tour Review - Hunting Evil by Chris Carter



Firstly, please forgive me whilst I have a bit of a fangirl moment but omg omg I have a stop on the Blog tour for Chris Carter's latest thriller Hunting Evil which is the 10th book in the amazing Detectives Robert Hunter and Carlos Garcia series.I love this series of chilling,enthralling,gripping and usually very gory thrillers. Ok (deep breath) fangirl moment over now let's get on with my review.

For three and a half years the most evil killer the FBI has ever seen, Lucian Folter has been locked in solitary confinement,plotting and planning, waiting for the perfect opportunity to escape from prison. Now he has broken free,is very angry and fully intends to exact his revenge on the man who was instrumental in his captivity. His former friend and college room mate and now head of the LAPD's Ultra Violent Unit... Detective Robert Hunter.

The breath taking opening chapter is only the first of a number of chilling,goose bump raising scenes scattered throughout this enthralling thriller. Lucian Folter is evil in human form,he kills because he enjoys killing,is cold and calculating and feels absolutely no remorse for his victims. He's also very smug and arrogant and such a despicable character that I dreaded getting to any parts of the story that he featured in. Hunter, having already previously encountered and apprehended Lucian already knows how evil,manipulative and twisted he is but at first Garcia struggles to understand why Hunter is so perturbed or even scared after he finds out that Lucian has escaped. After all in the ten years that they have worked together,Garcia and Hunter have apprehended some seriously twisted psychopaths. But he swiftly learns that Lucian is unlike any of the killers that he has encountered before. As the cat and mouse battle of wits unfolds, Hunter finds himself pushed to the limit personally,mentally and physically. When the battle is over and the smoke clears,will good triumph over evil or will Lucian escape and be free to carry on his reign of chaos and evil,wherever he goes?

As I said,I love this compelling thriller series,each book is exceedingly well written,packed full of twists and turns,sadistic,evil protagonists,gory violence,spine chilling scenes and holds the reader captivated from the first word to the last and Hunting Evil is no exception. As Chris Carter states at the beginning of this book,if you really want to know and understand the full story behind Hunter and Lucian's history then it is advisable to read An Evil Mind before reading Hunting Evil. This is a brilliant addition to this amazing series and I can't wait to find out what Chris Carter has planned for Hunter and Garcia in book eleven.

I was born in Brasilia, Brazil where I spent my childhood and teenage years. After graduating from high school, I moved to the USA where I studied psychology with specialization in criminal behaviour. During my University years I held a variety of odd jobs, ranging from flipping burgers to being part of an all male exotic dancing group.

I worked as a criminal psychologist for several years, during which I interviewed and worked on over one hundred cases involving serial killers, murderers and serious offenders, before moving to Los Angeles, where I swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas and an electric guitar. After a spell playing for several well known glam rock bands, I decided to try my luck in London, where I was fortunate enough to have played for a number of famous artists. I toured the world several times as a professional musician.

A few years ago I gave it all up to become a full time writer.
