Blood Ties

Obsession, love, secrets and . . . murder

Ana Zielinska has relocated to Jersey to build bridges with her late mother’s family but not everyone is welcoming.

A tragic death further isolates Ana from her relatives and introduces her to a man from a very different background. But, as danger closes in, is he as he seems. Is someone out to harm her and who can she trust?

DCI Jack Le Claire is juggling several cases, whilst trying to get his personal life back on track. His investigations take him from high-society parties to the seedier, and decidedly steamier, side of island life.

Further events take Le Claire back to his old hunting grounds in London but as past and present start to collide a triple threat could ruin his career, his reputation and his marriage.

Who can you trust?

Blood In The Sand

How far would you go to claim your birth-right?

When family tragedy strikes, New York lawyer Grace Howard travels to the Channel Island of Jersey. Welcomed by her family’s connections by marriage, and suffering from a personal setback, Grace is introduced to two very different men. However, all is not as it first appears in this island community and before long Grace is caught up in a murder enquiry. In her time of greatest need Grace doesn’t know who she can trust.

DCI Jack Le Claire has returned to his Jersey roots after a stint with the London Metropolitan Police where he worked Homicide and Serious Crime. After months of dealing with run-of-the-mill cases, Le Claire cannot help but miss his time with the Met and secretly longs for something more challenging. Be careful what you wish for – it just might come true.
