Innocence: A Grace Chibwana Thriller - Book CoverThis is a hard boiled thriller. The central character is Grace Chibwana, a young woman with an African father and European mother. Grace is a fighter, toughened by a history of abuse, prostitution and drug taking before she was rescued, rehabilitated and given commando-style training by a group of soldiers of fortune led by her supposedly dead father.

Now she finds herself at the centre of a struggle to rescue her sister's eight year old son from a gang of people traffickers run by Thornton, a sadistic serial killer living in Las Vegas. Grace has an unusual ally, Chi, her imaginary friend from childhood but now her ‘second personality’ whose re-emergence was triggered by her use of LSD. Chi sees things Grace may fail to see. Between them they miss nothing and have developed a strong mutual trust.

Together they have to find where the child has been taken before it is too late to save him.

In this fast moving story of no holds barred, brutal action we see the sheer speed and intelligence of her decision making and her merciless treatment of her foes bringing results which would not be possible for a more conventional investigator.

Author's Note: 

The heroine of this thriller has had her problems, scraping the very bottom of the barrel by the time she hit her early twenties but she made it through and now she is uniquely equipped to deal revenge and justice to the types of people who once had her down. This novel was written for a young man, not an avid reader, who was looking for a fast paced thriller with plenty of action and a reliable main character.

About The Author

I am a litigation lawyer, which means I have spent my life dealing with conflicts of all kinds, from defending murder to protecting the victims of relationship abuse. This has given me a good understanding of the way people of all kinds behave and how some people are able to get what they want by the use of intimidation, i.e. bullying. I am married with three smart children, I love listening to music, mainly classical but my attempts to learn to play the violin failed miserably.
