About this ebook

They say lightning never strikes twice, but Rae Holland knows better.

Already dealing with the aftermath of death and betrayal, Rae’s life is thrown into crisis when her neighbour is murdered. She wants to know who killed ‘Smokey’ Joe Whitmore and why.

For John Lawrence, Smokey’s death is an affront to the natural order. Smokey was a brother. A warrior who shared John’s pain and scars. He deserved to die fighting, not trapped in his wheelchair.

But Smokey was a man with secrets. Despite losing his legs in Uruzgan, he established a successful business. If you wanted something dangerous, and had the money, Smokey knew where to get it.

Now his business partners want to know what happened to their money and weapons. They don’t care who gets in their way.

Can Rae and John avoid getting each other killed while they pursue their own leads? At least long enough to find out who killed Smokey?

About the author

 Andrew Christie is the author of three novels in the John Lawrence crime thriller series: Left Luggage, Tunnel Vision and Comfort Zone.

As well as the novels, Andrew has blogged about his quest to eat at every restaurant and café along the length of Newtown’s King Street; one of the settings for the John Lawrence stories.


By the time his first novel came out, he had spent forty years working as a stagehand, cameraman, gardener and landscape architect. He now lives and writes in an old weatherboard house on the far south coast of New South Wales. The only trait he shares with the dangerous and scarred ex-army lead character of the novels is a love of single malts, flat whites, and bacon-and-egg rolls.
