Benny the Fence handed over the money for the diamonds, no questions asked. He didn't know her name, didn't want to. The sulky blonde had been using him for years and so far things had worked just fine. They spoke little. She always wore huge dark glasses and a navy overcoat with the collar turned up over her face covering her features. In moments she was gone. Picking her out in a line-up would've been impossible. He had protection so she wasn't a threat to him. She knew it too.

Meet Marko - not his real name by the way. He lives a double life; one life is lived under the radar as the leader of BRATVA (a Russian Mafia gang), and the other as an Oligarch who has the ear of the Kremlin...but for how long?
Ukrainian authors need to enable readers from around the world to find out about their work. And to reach that audience, their books need to be translated into other languages. So, what “The Authors Show® “ can do, is to give these books exposure, and through that exposure facilitate initial contact between authors and publishing industry professionals on all continents.

Closing the safe door quietly and with an expert spin of the dial, the black-clad woman straightened up, slinging the grip with her haul over her shoulder. She stood listening intently before moving towards the office door. Again, she waited, her ears straining, before gently prizing the door open and stepping silently into the corridor of darkened offices; she eased the door closed, calculating she had barely two minutes before the night-watchman made his rounds, trying the doors and checking the building was secure.
Anna Legat talks about featuring Children in Fiction for Adults and her latest Suspense Thriller, Broken…
When writing my suspense thriller, Broken, I had to put myself in the shoes of an eight-year-old boy. The story required me to write a couple of chapters from his point of view, reflecting not just the events in his life but also his attitudes and feelings. Writing those chapters wasn’t easy. Getting into a child’s mind and conveying their emotions and thoughts with authenticity is a tall order, even more so when one is writing a book for adults.
Hi, thanks so much for wanting to chat with me. At the present time we – Narnia’s Children – are rehearsing for another tour – Europe this time. We're really excited. There's a chance of playing in Switzerland again, and that would be ace. We’re about to move to another place – a new flat or house or something. Stephan, our manager, is going to be meeting us in the week to give us the low-down. We think it is going to be in London which will be really cool.
Staci’s had to learn to do what she needs to do to survive. And sometimes, that means taking things from shops and restaurants, or dumpster-diving. She’s also not above lying if it’ll keep her safe or get her food. She doesn’t always like the things she has to do, but she has a strong survival instinct. And anything is better than going back to her stepfather...

The Girl in the Van has multiple sub-plots with three main characters (Laura, Miriana, and Ellie), each of whom has a story to tell.
One of the sub-plots of The Girl in the Van turns on a vicious contemporary crime that I want to expose and bring to greater public awareness. For this reason, I’m relaxed about it being a (small) plot spoiler. ‘County lines’, as it’s known in the UK, is a form of modern slavery where vulnerable children and teens are groomed by criminal gangs and used to carry drugs from cities out to smaller towns or rural areas, often far from their home.
