Happy Publication Day to Lynda Renham, I am so pleased to be able to share an excerpt of Lynda Renham’s latest novel with you:

He looked down at his phone and smiled. A withheld number meant only one thing.
‘Yeah,’ he said roughly.
‘Sparrow?’ questioned the gravelly voice at the other end of the line.
‘Yeah it’s me.’
‘I’ve got a job for you. It’s a bit different from the usual. These are new clients. It’s a big one. Do you think you can handle it?’
Sparrow’s jaw twitched.
‘Sure. Don’t I always?’
‘This is different. You can’t make any mistakes,’ snapped the voice.
Sparrow bristled.
‘When have I ever made a mistake?’
‘Just as long as you understand. I don’t want any problems. There’s fifty thousand in this for you, but these people aren’t amateurs and they don’t take prisoners. This is a big contract. I don’t want it fucked up.’
Sparrow’s eyes gleamed. He’d misheard, surely.
‘How much?’ he questioned. It had always been a few thousand and he’d been more than happy with that.
‘Fifty thousand,’ repeated the voice.
Sparrow whistled. His insides quivered with excitement. That was a hell of a lot of money.
‘No mistakes. You do a good job, you’ll be well rewarded. You mess it up and you’re fucked. Well and truly.’
‘What do I have to do?’ Sparrow asked breathlessly.
‘The same as usual, get the package in safely, except this time you have to caretake for a while longer. This is highly sensitive. We want the heat off before any collection. There’ll be others wanting this cargo and …’
‘What is it?’ he interrupted, pulling a stale sausage roll from a brown paper bag and biting into it. There were a few seconds of silence.
‘Fifty thousand means you don’t ask questions,’ said the voice. ‘The less you know the better.’
Sparrow wrinkled his nose. He wasn’t so sure he agreed with that, but, fifty thousand …
‘Suits me,’ he said, throwing the remainder of the sausage roll into the sea.
‘There won’t be a collection straight after the drop. It’s up to you to keep the cargo safe for a while. A few days, that’s all. ‘
‘Sure,’ he said casually, although he would have been happier knowing just what he’d be caretaker of. Perhaps it was heroin this time. It was drugs, no doubt about that. It must be a big shipment. Still, what did he care?
‘We have to deliver. I’m making myself clear, aren’t I?’
‘How dangerous is this?’ he asked, combing his fingers through his brown curly hair.
‘Fifty thousand dangerous. Take it or leave it. I can find someone else.’
Sparrow doubted there was anyone else on the island that would be able to get the goods in as well as he did.
‘I’ve just got to keep it safe, right?’
‘That’s it. As soon as things are clear it will be collected.’
‘That’s all I’ve got to do?’ asked Sparrow, suspiciously. It seemed too good to be true.
‘You don’t have to take the job. There are others who …’
‘No, I’ll take it,’ interrupted Sparrow.
‘Think of this cargo as your baby,’ laughed the voice.
Sparrow didn’t laugh with him. The sound of the waves breaking on the rocks roared in his ears. The thought of fifty grand had heightened his senses. He’d be set up for life. He could move to South America, maybe even get his own bar. He could buy one of those open- top convertibles. He’s always fancied himself in one of those.
‘So, you’re in?’ asked the voice.
‘I’m in,’ said Sparrow.
‘I’ll be in touch,’ said the voice. There was a crackle and then the line went dead.

The Stepsister Full Tour Banner

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Jenny O’Brien’s latest novel: The Stepsister.  I have the pleasure of a guest post from the author Jenny O’Brien on my blog today:

The Handbag’s Tale

First, thank you for inviting me to participate on your blog, I’m delighted to be here.
Like most women I rely on my handbag to get through me the day. But bags for me are not just functional things of beauty. For me they hold memories alongside my wallet and phone.

I can’t remember the last time I had to buy a bag because it’s something my children and husband usually purchase as gifts. They’re not Chanel or Gucci but, to me they’re priceless.

Kraftireader - owl bagMy first Owl Bag, yes there have been more than one, was bought on a family holiday to Lanzarote a few years ago. I still have it but more for sentimental reasons than anything. This one is a recent addition. Bought this year in Biarritz it still has that gritty feeling from too many days baking on the hot sand—but not only that. It holds my life in its cavernous folds.

Apart from the essentials of phone, keys and wallet I always carry round both a notebook and a Kindle. I’m one of those people that’s unable to sit still so, when I have five minutes I’m either reading or writing. I also carry round a little owl make-up bag, even though I rarely wear the stuff. Instead of lipstick and the like it hides a strip of paracetamol, a couple of plasters and, unusually a needle and thread. I don’t have to use it often. In fact, the last time was a few years back at a friend’s wedding. I found myself dragged from the church to perform emergency surgery on one of the bridesmaid’s dresses that had ripped at the seam. They all know my reputation for always being prepared.

What else?
I always have a pair of surgical gloves lurking. As, a nurse I’m required to stop and offer my help in the event of an accident. So, gloves for me are a necessity. The last time I had to wear them was when I was attending to a girl in the south of France who’d split her leg on some rocks. Trying to explain to an hysterical teenager that she needed to go to hospital to get her leg stitched, when languages aren’t really your thing, is not something I’d wish on anybody.

Finally, there’s always a pack of cards, usually out of their packet and scattered to all four corners. With three teenagers we are, like the rest of the world, battling the perennial demon of technology usage. Funnily enough I seem to have given birth to a pack of card sharks. We can often be found in the middle of a game of Gin Rummy. You’ll be pleased to note I have no idea how to play poker.

Thank you so much Jenny, a great post and I hate to admit what I have in my bag!
