The Olympics, a Killer, a Debut author, oh my! Oracle will alter your Olympics viewing plans! Here’s why …
The idea came to me when London won the bid for the Olympics. The papers circulated stories about problems the city faced leading up to the Games: transport chaos, budget deficits, etc. … I thought: adding a serial killer to the mix would REALLY give organisers something to worry about!
Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?
Oh yeah … especially a big luxury yacht with all mod-cons. I’d take it round the Mediterranean, then the Caribbean! It’s like a posh caravan holiday on the high seas!
Do spelling and grammer mistakes annoy you?
“Grammer”! ARGH…!! *pulls hair*
If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
I’d love to have one of those TV presenting jobs where you travel the world tasting international foods! That or being a writer, of course!
Are you cheap or thrifty?
Thrifty. I don’t go for the big brand names if I can get the same quality for cheaper, yet at the same time I’m occasionally willing to splash out on something luxurious–usually dinner at an expensive restaurant!
Now, before we get to the last question, let’s look at J.C. Martin’s book …
As the countdown begins, the body count rises.
With London gearing up to host the Olympics, the city doesn’t need a serial killer stalking the streets, but they’ve got one anyway.
Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police force is no closer to finding the latest psychopath than Detective Inspector Kurt Lancer is in finding a solution for his daughter’s disability.
Thrust into the pressure cooker of a high profile case, the struggling single parent is wound tight as he tries to balance care of his own family with the safety of a growing population of potential victims.
One of whom could be his own daughter.
Fingers point in every direction as the public relations nightmare grows, and Lancer’s only answer comes in the form of a single oak leaf left at each crime scene.
Favorite one-line review about the book
It didn’t take a prophecy for me to discover a love of ORACLE by J.C. Martin.
Favorite 6 sentences from the book
“*I feel these six sentences really showcase why Lancer is so enamoured with his partner, Blaize.*
“You’re Sam Blaize?” he asked my partner. “I was expecting a … oh, it must be short for Saman—”
“No, just Sam,” Blaize said, cutting him off, green eyes flashing a stormy warning. There were two things nobody ever called her: Ginger was one; her hair colour could be better described, in her own words, as “cinnamon”. The other taboo word was Samantha. Considering her knockout record as an amateur kickboxing champion with the nickname “Firestorm”, most people were wise enough to respect her wishes.”
But before you go, one last question …
What Would You Do Right Now If You Had A Million Bucks?
The family needs a bigger house (with a big garden for the dogs!), so after splashing out on a new pad, I’ll shore the rest up in a savings account, quit my day job, and write full time!
Congratulations, J.C.! Good luck with Oracle!
