Lawrence Juste is the perfect QC - with the not so perfect past. But with his meddling wife about to be laid to rest and his long term enemy silenced by the threat of exposure as her killer, the judge's mantle is almost round his shoulders. What could possibly go wrong for the brightest star of the courts?


A series of blackmail notes implicating him in murder – together with the ever-present threat of joining the murder victim if he doesn't pacify his blackmailer – keep Juste in suspense to the brink of desperation. No-one is what they appear to be, especially not him. And no sooner does he patch one hole in his fraying life than another appears. It seems it can only end one way; disaster – unless his dead wife can help...

Patchwork People is the 2nd book in the compelling Patchwork People trilogy series of murder, mystery and lethal romance.

D.B. MartinDebrah 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.
She is widowed, has two daughters and moved to Wantage in 2013, describing it as the friendliest place she’s ever lived. She is also Chair of the Wantage (not just Betjeman) Literary Festival.

Mystery Novels are one of my favorite genres.  There have been some I dnf, they were boring.  I didn't find this one boring at all.  Patchwork People is among the best mystery novels I've read in a while. This is Book Two of the series but it is a stand alone, so don't worry if you haven't read Book One.
The character, Lawrence Juste, I find very enjoyable. He jumped the gun when he thought all was well because it ended up it wasn't.  Blackmail letters start arriving.
early on in the book. Once that started, I knew I was in for a real ride with this one. This was a mystery that I got so attached to, that I couldn't put it down. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.  I was trying to come to a conclusion of what was going on. My only problem with this book was it finished too soon.  That to me is a sign of a good book.  You want more and this is how the book ended.   The reader wanting a third  book. It can't come soon enough.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE PATCHWORK PEOPLE from the author, Deborah Martin for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
