Susan is published by Endeavour Media Ltd.

Book 3 in my Linked Series of psychological thrillers Once you are part of the Mafia family… you can never leave. But Frances knew she had to get out. She defied the Godfather, escaped his clan in Southern Italy and flew to Geneva where she would be chaperoned by Gilda. A year earlier, she and Frances had formed a friendship while in California, when they were thrown together by circumstances involving the murder of Gilda's adult son, Gary. "I’m asking you to write my biography. I can assure you that I have enough material to hold your interest…you won’t be bored," Gilda had told her. It wasn't boredom that concerned Frances, it was the fact that Gilda planned to reveal secrets that would ultimately endanger their lives. Gilda offers Frances sanctuary in her home. In exchange, Frances agrees to stay with Gilda in Geneva and write her biography. She diligently records Gilda's words which describe the devastating physical abuse she's suffered,her life bound to the Mafia and her love of gold. Gilda reveals personal secrets never before divulged including a confession which, once known, will bring dire consequences. A story of a life enriched by love and devastated by sadness, loss and pain. But against all the odds Gilda is a survivor, driven by a passionate will to live, the strength to overcome adversity and the courage to seek revenge. But the greater danger lies in writing a book that exposes the Mafia's unsolved crimes and the dignitaries involved; law-enforcement officers, Judges and politicians. With betrayal and revenge comes the expectation of retribution and the knowledge that the Mafia always seek vengeance. Will either of them live beyond the publication of Gilda's dangerous revelations? Will Frances escape the Mafia again? Or as the saying goes, will they shoot the messenger… and that would be Frances!

Speaking of books... and authors...

Marathon Marina hosted a book signing for Susan Bacoyanis, author of There Are No Accidents. I missed the book signing, but I was available to attend a question and answer session under the Tiki Hut where I had the opportunity to meet Susan. Susan was born in England and has a most lovely English accent to which one can listen for hours. There Are No Accidents is a psychological thriller through which themes of abuse, addictions and feminine resolve are intertwined with the plot.


The book is a series of three short stories which are linked together through interesting circumstances. There are twists and turns and surprises throughout the series which are sometimes wickedly humorous. Susan is affiliated with the non profit organization Domestic Abuse Shelter of the Florida Keys. A portion of the profits from the sale of her books helps to support this organization.
