Cutter

by Thomas Laird

â??This well-paced first thriller has an engaging narrator â?¦ and a new twist.’

Publishers Weekly

Jimmy Parisi is a cop who’s got everything going for him â?? a good career with the Chicago PD and a beautiful young redhead who’s just agreed to become his wife.

But working within the homicide department means that you are exposed to the darkest side of humankind.

A shocking and brutal killer is on the loose: someone who is not only murdering and raping young women, but then mutilating and abandoning their deformed bodies.

Not just operating out of an individual perverse desire to murder, this sickening killer is part of a wider criminal underworld.

Amongst the cops and in the media, he earns the nickname â??The Farmer’ – as evidence suggests he’s harvesting female organs for a sinister illegal trade.

Parisi is on the case from day one, determined not to allow the body count to increase even further.

But this elusive killer proves to be a criminal mastermind, evading the police department at every twist and turn.

Parisi refuses to give up but things become far too close for comfort when Parisi realises that the killer has a new victim in his sights: Parisi’s new wife.

A chilling and fast-paced thriller, â??Cutter’ delves into the psyche of a psychopath in what becomes a terrifying game of cat and mouse.

Praise for Thomais Laird

The Messiah Conspiracy – The Race To Clone Jesus Christ : (Book One): A Gripping Medical Suspense Thriller Conspiracy

by IAN C.P. IRVINE

The most gripping science fiction medical thriller you will ever read!

For fans of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne, Scott Mariani and John Lyman.

The Messiah Conspiracy, previously called ‘Crown of Thorns’, is a fictional thriller which takes place in the field of genetics and human cloning.

Hugely controversial, you will either love this book or hate it. Some will feel challenged and uncomfortable by the topic it deals with, and others will be drawn into it and unable to put it down… the question is, what will you think?

A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor’s thesis (PhD), which fulfils not only the criteria for â??originality’, but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.

Jason’s idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.

But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realises that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realises that the only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.

The race is on…

Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will askâ?¦.one of two questions:-

1: Is it really possible?

2: When will it happen?



What people have been saying about this book:-

Awesome Read: â??I read many books and this one was one of the best I have read. I loved it and think I will read it more than twice. It was the kind of book that was almost impossible to put down. Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to everyone.’

A Thumping Good ‘Must’ Read!: â?? â??Browsing the Kindle store for something to ‘unwind’ me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. To my mind, the Author mirrors perfectly the Biblical events of Jesus’ birth 2000 years ago and the subsequent ‘Revelations’ predicted for our time. The characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non-believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!! Far better than the Da Vinci Code by a country mile, I am certainly recommending this to all my many friends.’ â??

Well Written: â??I was looking at a different book, Dan Brown Inferno and this title came up on a reviewers comments suggesting it to be worth a read. I have to agree, it is. Loved the idea of cloning Jesus and for me it was written well, had page turning elements to it but I was disappointed when it ended. In a nice way though! It does leave one hanging…’

Totally preposterous, but enthralling! : â??I just happened on this book while browsing to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let’s be honest – recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to anyone else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is – a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!’

Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book Two free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited.
