TWISTED THREADS By Kaylin McFarren

Akira Hamada, a beautiful Japanese geisha, failed at killing Kaito Mitsui two years ago – the same yakuza gang leader who destroyed her lover and forced her to become an assassin. Now, with his sister’s murderer traveling to the Caribbean on a cruise ship, Akira has ten days at sea to identify her target and complete her assignment as her penance, or face her own death.

This is the fourth installment in Kaylin McFarren’s Threads series, but it stands alone as an erotic, psychological thriller. Available on Amazon.com at goo.gl/bGBmEJ

The Artist

A young actress awakens in an underground cell. Her mouth is taped shut, her limbs strapped to a rickety wooden chair. A booming voice from some unseen speaker ricochets around the dark space, announcing that a timer has been started. Precisely fifteen minutes later, a bullet rips through her head.

And so begins the story of The Artist.

Footage of the murder is sent to the media, and it soon becomes apparent that a serial killer known as Andy the Artist is operating in London. The Artist forces the young actresses into a perverse trade off – they acquire Andy Warhol’s prophesied fifteen minutes of fame, but that time will consist of the last desperate moments of their lives.

Meanwhile, teenager Kaylin Bellos discovers that a murderer is targeting actresses all over the city, and immediately fears the worst for her mother, a struggling actress who has begun to subsidise her income through prostitution.

As more actresses are slaughtered, Kaylin and The Artist appear to have a number of traits in common. Could The Artist be Kaylin’s estranged dad? And if so, what does that mean for the fate of her mum?

And who is following Kaylin to school?

The truth is more horrific than they could possibly imagine…

Torn

2004
The court case had been harrowing. The fifteen jurors sat in silence while the prosecution produced evidence of how a man with obsessive sado-masochistic fantasies had turned into a killer.

Club security is run by Paul Furlan, ex-army veteran and a former adversary of Wheeler. As Wheeler and Ross uncover the secrets and lies surrounding the club, they realise that their investigation is being blocked not just by Furlan but by some of Glasgow’s most influential citizens.

Meanwhile Skye Cooper, Scotland’s latest indie-rock sensation is playing the final gig of his sell-out tour but his dreams of stardom are on a collision course with the obsession threatening to consume him . . .

Half Bad

In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and sixteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?

In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.
