 THE JUDAS TREE…a psychological thriller
Sinister, bloodthirsty and sexy. This contemporary novel will provoke terror in every unfaithful lover.
 Part One – Betrayal Part Two – Greed
 The Judas Tree, my latest psychological thriller, is part of my Linked Series. It's a chilling story of multiple acts of betrayal and the consequences of greed. * Mary Webster's reaction to betrayal is off the chart. Mary seems like an ordinary 46-year-old, divorcee, beginning a new life in rural England. But Mary has depths of pent-up pain, after enduring 20 years of marital infidelities and abuse. All she needs is a trigger to unleash her emotions. 
 She becomes entangled with Jonas, a married man and finds herself in the contrary role of the other woman. He teases her about being contrary, comparing her to the Nursery Rhyme Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, which she discovers has a sinister meaning connected to Mary Tudor (Queen Mary 1) known as Bloody Mary. 
 When she uncovers Jonas's web of seductive lies, betraying not only herself, but his wife and several young village women, she plots her revenge and acts out the real meaning of the nursery rhyme which depicts torture. But things go terrifyingly wrong and Mary becomes the main suspect in a murder investigation. 
 Her sibling rivalry, her relationship with the village doctor and the greediness of her former friends further drives Mary beyond the boundaries of a normal person. But Mary is not normal...she is damaged. Her only redeeming quality is her belief in acting for the greater good. If you liked Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. This is a MUST read! 
 THE BOOK of REVELATIONS The Book of Revelations reveals Goldie's life. It is a continuum of my Linked Series. Once you are part of the Mafia family…you can never leave. ButFrances 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 Goldie, who was a former Mafia Queen. A year earlier, she and Frances had formed a friendship while in California, when they were thrown together by circumstances involving the murder of Goldie's adult son, Gary.
 Goldie offers her sanctuary in her home. In exchange, Frances agrees to write Goldie's biography. But there is risk, as Goldie intends to reveal the secrets of ‘The Family’, which is the unwritten, forbidden law in the Mafia world. Frances is aware that she too, will be in danger, but diligently records Goldie's words, as she retraces her life through Nazi Europe to America and Italy and finally, Geneva. Goldie's a survivor, who relives her emotional and physical wounds through descriptive passages, revealing a sensitive, strong and resourceful personality. But there is one truth that Goldie has not divulged to any living soul, before now. A secret so grave and burdensome, that someone privy to that information would instantly be in mortal danger. Frances is to be the one who will transcribe Goldie's most disturbing revelation. 
 Will either of them live beyond the publication of Goldie's life story? Will Frances escape the Mafia again…or as the saying goes…will they shoot the messenger…and that would be Frances!
