That is just an amazing co-incidence. I once owned 2 dogs which were unfortunately shot by the police in Benghazi, called Rebecca and Samantha. I think those names stuck in my head. I also chose short names as the title of the books with the names is rather long and so would take up too much space on the book cover. Hopefully Belinda is not the name of any of your family? Book 4 in the series is her story. I like the name Leah and I've grown very fond of her!(less)

She smiled as she added the poison to the food, this was for the family next door, their worker could choose how they would kill her family. (less)

A DELIGHTFUL TWIST
The idea of a defence lawyer who wants to kill the client who is acquitted of murder is an interesting premise and makes for a good story.

NOT TOO MUCH OF A SURPRISE
If you thought British politics was squeaky clean, this book should persuade you otherwise – they are just better at hiding the dirty facts. An interesting look behind the scenes of those in power.

I was a little disappointed as the storyline, although flipping back into the past and then to the present day was easy to follow, it was quite gruesome in places. I lacked empathy with the main character but I wasn’t tempted to give

Quotes by Lucinda E. Clarke  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There is nothing anyone can do to change a person with this personality disorder, mainly because they do not see any wrong in what they do or say. It is the rest of the world that is at fault and you cannot persuade them differently.”
Lucinda E. Clarke, Walking Over Eggshells: Surviving Mental Abuse

“Horses are measured by height from the withers, the top of the shoulder to the ground, and the average is 15 hands or 60 inches for a horse. At only 56.8 inches high the Basuto is shorter than most, and also lighter”
Lucinda E. Clarke, The very Worst Riding School in the World

“I was scripting for a series on the Arts programme which was shown very late on a Sunday evening, and I was sent off to get the low down on several up and coming musicians who would be featured each week. To the music world, they may have been up and coming, I would have preferred them to be down and going and preferably out of range.”
Lucinda E. Clarke, Truth Lies Propaganda: in Africa

Helene, if you check out my website https://lucindaeclarkeauthor.com you will find my email address there and I will wait to see what you send me in January. At present I cannot review on Amazon only on Goodreads. I do review honestly and fairly.


Lucinda Clarke Hi, is this where I introduce myself? I have been a professional writer for over 30 years, but for radio and TV and adverts, and Mayoral speeches and magazines and newspapers and news and educational books and just about everything else you can think of. Now I have retired I have really begun to write - books! I self published last July, my memoir, which sounds dry and dusty, but it is really a sad and a fun read 'Walking over Eggshells.' It tells of my abusive childhood, followed by my adventures in Africa and Libya. I am just completing my second book, a pure adventure story, also set in Africa. After living there for over 30 years I'm writing about what I know as they always advise you! Hope to chat to other people who've had a difficult childhood, or happy to give advice based on my experiences.
