Where
the Bodies Are
The
McAllister Series Book 1
by
L.V. Gaudet
Genre:
Psychological Crime Thriller 
 
Step
into the twisted mind of a serial killer in this disturbing
psychological thriller.

 

 

Dead
bodies are being left where they are sure to be found. But, the
killer made a mistake; one victim left for dead survived.

 

 

Kept
in a medically induced coma while she recovers, they can only watch
her and wait for the killer to come back for her.

 

 

While
Detective Michael Underwood protects their only living witness,
Detective Jim McNelly and his reporter friend Lawrence Hawkworth are
determined to find the killer and bring his killing spree to an end.
Instead, they discover a bigger mystery.

 

 

The
killer’s reality blurs between past and present with a compulsion
driven by a dark secret locked in a fractured mind. Overcome by a
blind rage that leaves him wallowing in remorse with the bodies of
victim after victim, he is desperate to stop killing.

 

 

After
learning of his victim’s survival, the killer sees it as a sign
they are meant to be together. Threatening her tenuous grip on life,
he is determined to take back his prize while he continues kidnapping
and murdering young women.

 

 

Accustomed
to a life of abuse, one victim’s experience becomes her refuge in a
desperate bid for survival.

 

 

Instead
of killing her, he keeps Katherine Kingslow imprisoned in the dark
while he continues plotting to take back the Jane Doe in the
hospital. How long can Kathy survive and will she lose her own
mind?

 

 

The
search for the killer will lead to his dark secret buried in the
past, something much larger than a man compelled to kill again and
again.

The
McAllister Farm
The
McAllister Series Book 2
 
Step
back in time to learn the secret behind the bodies in Where the
Bodies Are in this disturbing look at the boy who will grow up to
create the killer.

 

 

1981

 

 

Meet
David McAllister, the boy who will grow up to create the killer.

 

 

In
1981 there was a man who lived on a farm. William McAllister was a
private and reclusive man who, above all else, did not like to have
attention drawn on his family.

 

 

He
wanted only to be left to mind his own business and family and for
the world to do the same. But that very reclusiveness fosters
contempt and suspicion in the people of the small farming community
his family has called home for generations.

 

 

William
McAllister has a son, Jason McAllister. Jason is a troubled boy.
Growing up under his father’s strict rules and isolated from the
normal childhood relationships, he is left to explore his darker
inclinations. Seeing the darker side of Jason, William tries to rein
his son in by bringing him into the family business.

 

 

Just
then a serial killer starts preying on local young women. The
McAllisters quickly find themselves drawn into the spotlight when the
town decides William McAllister is the killer. As the town’s search
for the killer focuses on the McAllister farm and the woods behind
it, the threat to the McAllister secret grows.

 

 

The
McAllister family history is as dark as the secret hiding in the
woods. The attention is a threat to both William McAllister’s
profession and his family. He has no choice but to find the killer
himself. He might not like what he learns.

deeper into the twisted mind of a serial killer as he slips further
into madness in this disturbing psychological thriller.

Michael Underwood follows on the heels of book one, Where the Bodies
Are, bringing the first two stories and their characters together as
the search for the killer continues.

 

 

Michael
Underwood has vanished and everyone is searching for him. Detective
Jim McNelly is determined to not stop until he finds him. Working
with the detective, Lawrence Hawkworth is still chasing the bigger
story he knows is behind the bodies. Jason McAllister knows he must
stop the killer he created before he goes too far. He may be the only
one who can stop him.

 

 

Unable
to let go of his barely remembered past and the search for his
sister, the killer goes looking for Jason McAllister’s past and his
family.

 

 

*****

 

 

Detective
Jim McNelly is furious. Detective Michael Underwood disappeared
without a trace with the only living witness to the McAllister
murders. Worse, Michael is not who he pretended to be. And then the
other shoe fell.

 

 

Jason
T. McAllister, tried and convicted of the kidnapping and murders of
multiple women and the prime suspect behind the bodies discovered in
the woods behind the McAllister farm, is being inexplicably set free.
He will not spend the rest of his life in prison.

 

 

Jim
is determined to find Michael Underwood, bring him down, and discover
the truth about who he really is and what his connection to Jason
McAllister is.

 

 

Working
with his long time friend, the notoriously unscrupulous investigative
reporter Lawrence Hawkworth, Jim will not stop until he finds Michael
and the answers to the bodies found in the mass graveyard in the
woods behind the McAllister Farm.

 

 

Jason
McAllister knows he must stop the real killer behind the murders he
was convicted for. As the killer spirals further into madness, Jason
is the only one who can stop him. But, he needs help. He is going to
have to talk to his father, William McAllister, the man who taught
him how to hide the bodies.

 

 

Michael
Underwood and Katherine Kingslow are on the run. A victim of domestic
abuse and only known survivor of the McAllister Farm killer, Kathy
has lapsed into Stockholm syndrome. Now she is torn between her need
to be with her captor and fear of his escalating psychotic
episodes.

 

 

Everyone
is hunting for Michael Underwood.

willing to risk the wrath of the Empress?

A plane crash! Lost in the Mexican jungle! Will Adam, Justin, and Kim survive long enough to find the Third Stone of Power?

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019
I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

 A
5000-year-old mystery comes to life when a scruffy peddler gives Adam and
Justin Sinclair an old Egyptian scarab on their very first day in Egypt. Only
when the evil Dr. Faisal Khalid shows a particular interest in the cousins and
their scarab, do the boys realise they are in terrible danger. 



Justin and Adam
embark upon the adventure of a lifetime, taking them down the Nile and across
the harsh desert in their search for the legendary tomb of the Scarab King, an
ancient Egyptian ruler. They are plunged into a whirlpool of hazardous and
mysterious events when Dr. Khalid kidnaps them.  With
just their wits, courage, and each other, the boys manage to survive … only to
find that the end of one journey is the beginning of another! 

 This is a must-read for Middle Graders keen on action, adventure, and
Arthurian stories! 
 
Cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair are
hot on the trail of the second Stone of Power, one of seven ancient stones lost
centuries ago. This stone might be embedded in the hilt of a newly discovered
sword that archeologists believe belonged to King Arthur: Excalibur. 
 
However,
their long-standing enemy, Dr. Khalid, is following them as they travel to
Scotland to investigate an old castle. Little do they know there is another
deadly force, the Eaters of Poison, who have their own mission to complete.
Time is running out as the confluence of the planets draws closer. Can Justin
and Adam find the second Stone of Power and survive? 

A plane
crash! Lost in the Mexican jungle! Will Adam, Justin, and Kim survive long
enough to find the Third Stone of Power?
With
only a young boy, Tukum, as their guide, the kids make their way through the
dense and dangerous jungle to find the lost city of stone gods, where the Stone
of Power might be located. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and
evading predators are just part of this hazardous task.
 
Of
course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on.
But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible
enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to
revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice.  Will they emerge
alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before
they do?
   
 
 
Snippet From Book 1:
The snake jerked at the sound of his
voice. It glided closer to the stone sarcophagus. Adam lay back on the pile of
smelly bones and closed his eyes to half-slits. He looked up at the ceiling
where the painted cobra shimmered.
I can’t believe this is happening. I
know it’s after me.
The slithering, scraping sound grew
louder. Then directly in front of him, just at the edge of the stone
sarcophagus, the forked tongue whipping back and forth came into view followed
by the loathsome head, which reared up, its hood spread wide. Then the snake
opened its monstrous jaws, revealing wicked fangs. A clear drop of deadly
poison, glistening like a pearl, trembled on the end of each fang. The reptile
made a hideous hissing as it stared into the stone coffin, hunting for its
prey, waiting for the tiniest movement that would betray his presence. Adam
closed his eyes so he wouldn’t have to look into the snake’s gleaming black
orbs.
I’m finished, he thought, sliding his hand into his
pocket and feeling the scarab. Somehow, just holding it made him feel calmer.
Then Justin called softly, “I know
how I can distract it.

A modern day adventure as our protagonists search for Excalibur and the treasures it holds! This is a must-read for Middle Graders keen on action, adventure, and Arthurian stories! 
 
Continuing the adventure that began in Egypt a few months prior in The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair are hot on the trail of the second Stone of Power, one of seven ancient stones lost centuries ago. This stone might be embedded in the hilt of a newly discovered sword that archeologists believe belonged to King Arthur: Excalibur. 
 
However, their long-standing enemy, Dr. Khalid, is following them as they travel to Scotland to investigate an old castle. Little do they know there is another deadly force, the Eaters of Poison, who have their own mission to complete. Time is running out as the confluence of the planets draws closer. 
 
Can Justin and Adam find the second Stone of Power and survive? And why did Aunt Isabel send a girl with them? Join Justin and Adam as they search not only for the second Stone of Power, but also for the Scroll of the Ancients, a mysterious document that holds important clues to the Seven Stones of Power. 
 
As their adventure unfolds, they learn many things and face dangers that make even their perils in Egypt look tame. And how annoying for them that their tag-along companion, Kim, seems to have such good ideas when they are stumped. 
 
Book extras include some historical background on King Arthur, the Dark Ages, warfare and weaponry during Arthur’s time, and details on Excalibur. A fascinating peek into the life and times of the real King Arthur, perfect for young time travelers and budding archaeologists. For coloring-in enthusiasts, ten original black and white illustrations including 2 maps make for more enjoyment!

 

 

Snippet:
He heard a faint howling noise in the distance. Wolves? Adam froze with fear. He desperately tried to remember whether there had still been wolves in England during the Dark Ages. There must have been because there was no other sound quite like the howl of a wolf. The hairs on his arms rose as he heard the howl again. Although he pinched himself to wake up, it was no good; he remained in the dream. At the sound of distant hoof beats, he almost ducked behind a large tree trunk. There was no time to hide because suddenly the drumming hooves were all around him. Then came the faint melancholy wail of a battle horn, and the tinny sound of chinking metal. He could hear the crisp snap-snap of fluttering pennants, and when he turned, he glimpsed banners waving among the trees. The surge of spectral riders halted and one man, seated on a white horse, appeared at the head of the cavalcade.
The eerie figure came closer, the horse lifting its feet carefully, clip-clopping right up to the trembling boy. The horse was huge, its trappings gleaming with pinpoints of metal rosettes, its long tail and mane hanging like ghostly cobwebs in the pale moonlight. The beast snorted and stamped restlessly. Adam saw the burnished glint of a helmet with a dragon-shaped crest topped by a red plume. Although the cheek pieces of the helmet obscured the man’s features, the shadowy figure was looking right at him. A red cloak swirled around the warrior’s body and, as the fabric swung aside, Adam saw the gleam of chain mail and the dark shape of a breastplate on the man’s chest. The warrior’s armor seemed more Roman than he expected. A banner flapped from the spear of a man behind the warrior: a red dragon on a white background. The warrior raised one arm, and a roar erupted as the sounds of cheering burst from what seemed to be thousands of throats. Although Adam heard strange words in another language, somehow, he understood what the voices said.

Today we have Betsy love as our guest. Welcome to my blog…

Even though I’m published, I have so much to learn, and attending Linda’s class was informative and fun. Here is what her class was all about:

First of all, Linda says, “Take time writing your book; make it as perfect as you can.” She says it’s important to know your target audience, know your word count, and know what your publisher/agent accepts. (more…)
