This is my first attempt at a novel. I got a little carried away as it's a rather large tome. Some of it is influenced by life experience, I've done a bit of street work a while ago. I was involved in promoting safe sex because of HIV and other horrible diseases. I put my book on Amazon in September last year. It's plodding along nicely at the moment, and long may it continue. If you have a kindle subscription it's free to download and costs the huge amount of £1.99 to buy. I hope you read it and like it, that's more important than anything. Here's the promotional bit to see if it floats your boat! Love Suzy xxx
Meet the Moffat family Michael and Carl and their friends and enemies. They are up and coming new boys who have worked all their young lives to take over the criminal underworld that exists in every city, this one just happens to be Liverpool. They aim to take down the main man called TJ Murphy, a middle aged gangster who although it’s the 1990's is stuck in the 1980's and still wears his Miami vice style clothes, and is proud he got rich from the heroin that flooded in and nearly destroyed a whole generation. He’s so hated that even one of the other contenders for the prize Mad Maisie is prepared to help the Moffats to take him down. He knows he hasn't got much time left so he let's loose his secret weapon Stephen Bentley, a middle class boy who loves violence more than any person or thing, and who only works for him so he can eventually kill him and take it all. He is the worst type of sex tourist and goes often to the Far East to practice his perversions on beautiful young girls. The Moffats are different, you've heard of a tart with a heart well these are gangsters who are brutal when needed but care about the people they've grown up around. This is down to their sister Sara forced on the game by their mother. She was a heroin addict but who loved her two little brothers so fiercely she would do anything to protect them. She was brutally murdered in the late 1980's, but left them a legacy of love. Their mother is the vile Shelagh Moffat who’s idea of a good night out is to get off her head as much as possible, have sex and steal whatever she can from her victims. It doesn't matter whether they are rich city boys from luxury apartments by the Pier head or old aged pensioners off the Estate. Maisie owns a successful night club, with her partner Linda, and although she loves Linda she has many affairs with young women, gets bored and goes back to her, expecting to be forgiven, but everyone has a limit, and Linda is near to reaching hers. Phil is Maisies right hand man, and will do anything for her until one day she goes too far even for him. Tiffany is a beautiful young woman who attracts Maisie, and she uses her to try and get to the Moffats intending to bag one of them so she doesn't need to be an escort or prostitute anymore. She thinks she will go to any lengths to achieve this but it goes wrong and she is left hurt, frightened and unsure of whom she is. A complex tale of life in a modern city, exposing the darker side that most of us know is there but most of us don’t want to see.
