J.C Martin blog tour: Oracle

Please give a warm A-Z welcome to our guest author today, J.C Martin! Her name probably sounds familiar because her book, Oracle, was listed in the post Damyanti did of her book recommendations by our friends atgoodreads. I promised you she'd be here, and tada! She is. Let's show her our love and attention with lots of comments like we always do our special friends who visit.

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

Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police force is no closer to finding the latest psychopath 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 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.

About the Author

J.C. Martin is a butt-kicking bookworm: when she isn’t reading or writing, she teaches martial arts and self-defence to adults and children. 

After working in pharmaceutical research, then in education as a schoolteacher, she decided to put the following to good use: one, her 2nd degree black belt in Wing Chun kung fu; and two, her overwhelming need to write dark mysteries and gripping thrillers with a psychological slant. 

Her short stories have won various prizes and have been published in several anthologies. Oracle is her first novel.

Born and raised in Malaysia, J.C. now lives in south London with her husband and three dogs.

Sounds like the kind of suspense I'd like. Voted at your 100W sprint contest today, too. Good luck with the book, JC.

i am planning to read this--looks amazing :)

Jo said...

Looks like a great story. Good luck with it.

What makes some books take off and others, which appear equally good, don't do so?

J.C. Martin said...

Thank you for having me on your lovely blog!

Alex: Hope you enjoy it when you get to it! Do appreciate all your support!

D.G.: I'm sure the sprinters appreciate the vote! Thanks!

Arlee: Thank you!

Lynn: Thanks, hope you like it when you get to it!

Jo: Great question. Not sure if anyone knows. Suppose it's a combination of good marketing, word of mouth, and being in the right place at the right time?

Yay for JC. I've said this before, but I'll say it again, I loved Oracle.

Wishing JC the greatest success with her book. This sounds like just the kind of story I'd love to read!

Hey J.C!
Thanks for visiting today! I have your book on my Kindle and hope to be able to catch up on my reading soon. You'd think a girl on bedrest could manage that...but alas, I just fall asleep when I try. No offense to any of my friend authors....

I think J.C.'s blog was one of the first I read in the A to Z and I remember loving it. Then, I felt especially special to see that she had read my posts during the A to Z. Now that Oracle is out and ready, the story sounds amazing and it's been a while since I've read a book that takes place in London. Another one to add to my list and congrats J.C. I'm looking forward to reading Oracle.

With all my household problems life has been difficult-- but reading your book is one of the things I'm looking forward to!

I hope JC sells lots of copies. I think it's great her publication was able to coincide wit the Olympics.
