SUMMARY (from Amazon)
 Have you ever met a patchwork man?

Lawrence Juste is one. The QC with a conscience - privileged, reputable and emotionally frozen.

But Lawrence hasn't always been who he is now. When he is glaringly in the public eye after his enigmatic wife is killed in an apparently random hit and run, he could do with a hidden past surfacing like a hole in the head.

Unfortunately the past has a way of finding its way back to you, just like betrayal. His dead wife has helpfully left him a sinister resume of his, and she just keeps adding to it ...

Patchwork Man is the first in a trilogy. The second, Patchwork People will be  released soon'

Picture Debrah Martin writes adult fiction as Debrah Martin/ D.B. Martin and a Young Adult teen detective series under the pen name Lily Stuart. Debrah’s novels examine real people in real – but unexpected – situations, and the way their life transforms because of them. Her work has been described variously as intriguing, poignant, irreverent, quirky and page-turning.

This was a well written mystery.Since there were a lot of foreign phrases, they were spelled correctly.  I even looked some of them up.  Author was right on target.I didn't realize this was book one of a series of three. The only place I could find about it being a series was on the Amazon Page.
The story was suspenseful with so many relationships that were all over the place.I would definitely read the other two books first, it might make more sense that way.The author wrote a captivating mystery that has many parts to it.Ms. Martin created a mystery so full of suspense with woven webs of twists and turns. The author takes us through many flashbacks of the character's lives. Just as we learn more of the characters, the mystery deepens and the story becomes more suspenseful. The author seems to have the uncanny ability to keep you in suspense until she is ready to let you know what is really going on.  She has characters that the reader can relate to.I was just sorry when it ended.  I'm ready for more.

 I was given a complimentary copy of Patchwork Man from the author  Debrah B. Martin for my view of the book.   No other compensation took place.

I would give this book  5  STARS.
