Blood Rights


Please join me in congratulating Kelly Clayton on the publication of the fourth novel in the Jack Le Claire Mystery Series, Blood Rights! I had the pleasure of working with Kelly on a developmental edit and a copyedit of this suspenseful mystery set on the Channel Island of Jersey, which Kelly has called home for most of her life, and I designed the cover. Here's the book description:

Greed, rage, envy . . . and murder.

DCI Jack Le Claire is investigating the death of a high-profile resident on the Island of Jersey. But the killing has only just begun.

Kurt Englebrook has it all. He’s a hedge fund tycoon with a gorgeous younger wife, two grown sons and a loyal team around him. But Kurt has a secret; somebody knows what it is and is determined to make him suffer. Meanwhile, an argument rages over an ancient right-of-way and a historic tower.

Kurt’s sister-in-law, Chloe Marsden, is grateful to inhabit his world of privilege and plenty. But what Chloe cares most about can’t be bought.

They've killed once and crossed a line. Now there's no going back.

A brutal death reveals the widening cracks that threaten to break apart the Englebrooks and those connected to them.

A killer is on the rampage, but what do they want?

As the deaths mount up, Le Claire must trap a vicious killer, although he has numerous suspects and very few leads.

He is distracted as a looming shadow from his past threatens his future and that of his family.

A suspenseful mix of lies, desires and murder set in the seemingly idyllic Channel Island of Jersey.

Blood Rights is available now in Kindle format on Amazon and Amazon UK. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, visit Kelly's website for the scoop on her upcoming releases and writing and publishing tips, and check out her feature on ITV!
