Will they find Brooke’s attacker before he strikes again, or will that one secret stay buried forever?

When Brooke Adams is found battered, bleeding, and barely conscious, the police are at a loss as to who her attacker is or why she was targeted.

Then, PI Rod Morgan turns up convinced that Brooke’s attack is the latest in a string of unsolved disappearances dating back thirty-five years. The police, however, aren’t convinced, leaving Brooke and Rod to investigate the cases themselves.

As secrets from the past start unraveling, it becomes a maze, deeper, darker, and far more sinister than either of them could have imagined.

Will they find Brooke’s attacker before he strikes again, or will that one secret stay buried forever?

From Roger Bray:

I have always loved writing; putting words onto a page and bringing characters to life. I can almost feel myself becoming immersed into their lives, living with their fears and triumphs. Thus, my writing process becomes an endless series of questions.

What would she or he do, how would they react, is this in keeping with their character? Strange as it sounds, I don’t like leaving characters in cliffhanging situations without giving them an ending, whichever way it develops.

Serving in the Navy, fighting in wars, serving as a Police officer and the experiences each one of those have brought have all drawn me to this point, but it was a downside to my police service that was the catalyst for my writing.

Medically retired after being seriously injured while protecting a woman in a domestic violence situation I enrolled in university and gained bachelor and master degrees in politics and international relations. The process of learning, of getting words down onto the page again relit my passion for writing in a way that I hadn’t felt since high school.

Where my writing will take me I have no idea but I am going to enjoy getting there and if my writing can bring some small pleasure into people’s lives along the way, then I consider that I will have succeeded in life.

Personal fun facts:

Married with three grown children and one granddaughter, I live in Queensland with the love of my life, my wife of thirty years and her overly cute cat.

I write literary suspense thrillers and know little about cryptocurrencies or Tinnitus, so if you find those books they are not mine.

Review by Donna Maguire:

I have read a few books by the author and was delighted to see that he was releasing a new one and I couldn’t wait to get my teeth into it!

I was drawn in completely by the blurb and was hooked by the storyline within a few pages. I loved the pace and the way the story built up to a cracking ending. It has some fascinating characters and I loved their interaction, it is a well-planned story and it flowed very well and before I knew it I had read over sixty percent of the book – not bad for just a few chapters! I was completely immersed in the story.

Five stars from me – a very enjoyable read – very highly recommended!!
