three people.
Each has a secret.
Each has an agenda.
All three are liars.

One of them committed a terrible crime.
One of them is on the run.
More than one of them is a killer.

These three people are about to find out what happened to Lori.
And they’re going to wish they never did…

Is she dead? Or is it much worse?


What Happened To Lori is a gearshift thriller series comprised of two 90,000 word books. This unconventional thriller bombards the reader with intriguing questions and eye-popping scenarios, pulling you deeper and deeper into a complex–yet highly entertaining–web of mystery, secrets, sex, double-crosses, lies, voyeurism, torture, and deceit, leading up to the biggest mind-blowing twist in modern genre fiction.

Book 1 sets the scene, introduces the main characters, and pulls you into a wicked plot involving a missing woman who is presumed dead, her obsessed grieving brother, her off-kilter ex-con husband, and the mysterious mercenary her husband hires to replace her…

You may think you have it figured out.

You’re probably wrong.

What Happened to Lori will stay one step ahead of you right until the epic, unexpected, universe-shattering conclusion.

Welcome to the modern thriller. It will blow your mind.


What Happened to Lori Book 1: Genesis (Mind-Blowing Twist Thriller Duology)


My mind is already blown away with this book and the second and concluding part is yet to be published. It isn’t that you need to get your head around a lot of characters, primarily there are only three but all of them are complex and seriously unbalanced in some way.

The core of the story centres around Lori, who doesn’t even make an appearance except by name. Lori is missing presumed murdered by her husband Fabler.

Fabler had been released from prison after only two years and now seems to be on an obsessional mission in his fully military-style converted home.

Lori’s brother, Pilgrim or Grim as everyone calls him, who served in the Special Operations Unit with Fabler, is convinced that he killed his sister. He is trying to regain some sort of control back over his life to focus on finding out the truth.

Brought into this mix is outsider Marna Presley, who is hired by Grim to apply to an advert put out by Fabler for a woman with very specific looks and talents. Presley is again military trained and with a few adjustments to her physical appearance matches to requirements.

What follows is bizarre in the most hypnotic and compelling way. I couldn’t stop reading this unpredictable addictive book. I wanted to know what was behind closed doors. Why Fabler was holding something huge a secret and what had happened to Lori?

They are all strong characters there for very different reasons, hopefully when they are all there for Lori things may really begin to take off. It is pure adrenaline rush from page one to be continued when book 2 is published.

Konrath is always a strong favourite of mine and I am loving this new direction that he is taking me in. The good news is it isn’t long until the final book is published. Totally fascinated by this!
