Solve the Mystery ...


Isn't this a fabulous cover?  It gives such a mystical feel. And today is the first time the world is seeing it. J.C. Martin's new book isn't out for sale yet, but this is her fantastic cover reveal celebration! 

What is Oracle? 

As the countdown begins, the body count rises.

With London gearing up to host the Olympics, the city doesn’t need a serial killer stalking the streets. They’ve got one anyway.

Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police are no closer to finding their latest murderer than Detective Inspector Kurt Lancer is in finding a solution for his daughter’s disability.

Thrust into the pressure cooker of a high profile case, the struggling single parent is wound tight as he tries to balance care of his own family with the safety of a growing population of potential next victims.

One of whom could be his own daughter.

Fingers point in every direction as the public relations nightmare grows, and Lancer’s only answer comes in the form of a single oak leaf left at each crime scene.

I love it! Doesn't sound great? And you don't have to wait for the book birthday to start solving the mystery .... 

J.C. is running a blogging mystery of her own all day today. Solve it and you can win $20 Amazon gift card. All you have to do is hop over to Mystery Tour Headquarters and inspect the blogs listed there for clues. Come on, you know you want to! Who doesn't love a good mystery???

Sounds like an exciting book, full of conflict. I like that! I just finished Open Minds by Susan Quinn. A very good book that I enjoyed very much.

PK, there was a comic who used to say "football is my life" All I have to do is change one word and I am in heaven 'cause mystery is my life and love. Great premise and something I will be drawn into. I am on a campaign to read all the first three to six novels of mystery writers who I might have found after they had double digits pub'd. So I spend five days reading the first three of Michael Connelly's great character Harry Bosch, I am rereading Tess Gerritsen's first medical thriller and the first Jesse Stone by Robert Parker (rip) ... Mix mystery with other stuff and I love it ... love the cover ... gotta go and see if I can solve a mystery on J.C.'s site :)

I agree, great cover! And what a fun book launch contest!

McKenzie McCann said...

Wow, even from the summary, I can tell it has rich subplots. I'm almost speechless.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

LOL, London for sure doesn't need a serial killer with all the road construction getting ready for the Olympics. :P Nice teaser, PK!

J.C. Martin said...

Hi guys! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! I'm glad you all liked the cover and blurb! I've been dying to reveal it to the world since I finalised it with my publisher! This is the point where my story stops being just a manuscript, and is one step closer to becoming a living, breathing book! I am thrilled to have you all follow my journey to get it there!

And a HUGE thank you to PK for her help in revealing the cover! You're awesome-sauce!
