Author – Gordon Bickerstaff.
I was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. I studied biochemistry, and I’ve worked in several Scottish Universities where I did research on enzymes and taught biochemistry. After thirty years of teaching and research I retired my academic pen and took of a fiction pen.
I write medical-themed thrillers. Deadly Secrets was published in 2013, and was followed by Everything To Lose in 2014, The Black Fox in 2015, Toxic Minds in 2016, Tabula Rasa in 2017 and Tears of Fire in 2018. I live in central Scotland with my wife and we enjoy reading, writing, and walking in the hills.

The Blurb –
Conspiracy. Espionage. Spy Story.
Two serial killers have been getting away with murder for years. For them, it’s a well-paid hobby while they bide their time. It’s about to stop when everything slots into place for them to leap to the next level. Payback for the people who killed their parents.
Lambeth Group investigator, Gavin Shawlens, is on their trail. But all is not as it seems and he is pushed way out of his depth when the killers turn on his family. Gavin’s Lambeth Group partner, Zoe Tampsin, is cut off from him and fighting her own battle to stay alive.
They need to connect but Zoe will face an impossible choice. Stop the killers before they pull off the most audacious murder that will shock the world and change it forever. Or, rescue Gavin’s family from the jaws of evil.
My thoughts – Wow what another incredible read from Gordon Bickerstaff. I was really looking forward to reading this after reviewing Deadly Secrets.
This books continues the Lambert Group thriller series, and although it is part of the series, this could easily be read as a standalone. The book reads like any good Bond film, the author really captures the intensity and danger of the situations he places his protagonists in.
Tears Of Fire sees Gavin and Zoe fighting for their lives, unable to help each other. Zoe has been found guilty of killing members of an influential family and Gavin finds his family are in grave danger.
This is such an exciting read, that makes you flip the pages quicker and quicker. The author has a real knack for writing action thrillers, but he adds character and depth to the story so it make s care about the people involved.
