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 ...

Fans are saying


Brilliantly structured mystery!

Lawrence Juste is thrown into disarray after losing his wife in a hit-and-run accident. Lawrence tries to keep it together but discovers that there's much more to the accident than meets the eye. Discovering that somehow his wife knew about his past creates a thick blanket of mystery that keeps the story moving at breakneck speed.

The author has masterfully created a complex character that helps move the story forward. The surprising revelations in the story have a huge impact on Lawrence's future, especially his career. It's great how both the character and the reader are left stunned with the secrets that were uncovered.

The build up is well done that if you pay close attention, you'd find small clues on how the loose ends would be tied up. It's just wonderfully structured and brilliantly paced.

A compelling thriller 

D B Martin is truly multi-tasker as she writes in three different genres. She used to be a businesswoman for many years before she started to write. Patchwork Man is D B Martin's new compelling thriller that has just been released and is available for the Kindle.

Patchwork Man is such an engaging book I couldn't stop reading. It tells the story of a fallen hero - Lawrence Juste QC - who is a reputable man but he suddenly lost his wife in a hit and run accident; Lawrence was very sad about his wife's death.

As the story develops, his past seem to catch up with him, plus his dead wife also’ blackmails’ him from her grave by making him take on a specific case. This is what Lawrence is finding so difficult to deal with since everything comes crashing down on him at once.

This book will draw you in, especially with all the mystery surrounding the main character’s past. A well written book that is full of secrets. It gets my recommendation!

Author Bio

D.B. Martin


Debrah Martin describes herself as the ultimate multi-tasker.

'Sometimes I even have to remind myself who I am for the day,' she admits.

That's because she writes under three different pen names and in three very different genres. As Debrah Martin she writes literary fiction. 'Falling Awake' is a dream-like tale where truth IS stranger than fiction. She also plots fast-paced and compelling thrillers as D.B. Martin, with the first in the 'Patchwork' trilogy, 'Patchwork Man', out on Kindle now and in print August 2014. Its fallen hero, Lawrence Juste QC faces a future as tricky as his past when his previous misdeeds catch up with him and his dead wife blackmails him, apparently from beyond the grave. The second in the series, 'Patchwork People' twists the knife even further when it's released at the end of September 2014.

And not to be overlooked is her YA teen detective series, penned as Lily Stuart - THE teen detective. Irreverent, blunt, funny and vulnerable, Lily's diary tells the tale of her mother's internet dating spree - and the murderer she meets, interspersed between daily life as a teenager, with all its bitching, banter, and vulnerability. 'Webs' is also due to be released in September 2014.

So why not stick to just one name and one genre?

'Variety is the spice of life,' she replies. 'And I have all these ideas - they have to come out somehow!'

Debrah's past careers have spanned two businesses, teaching, running business networking for the University of Winchester and social event management. She now currently makes do with chairing a literary festival in her home town when she's not writing. She also has two daughters and a dog to organise.

'See - more multi-tasking!'
