Left Luggage (John Lawrence Novel)

by Andrew Christie
When it’s too late for talking… you need John Lawrence.
Just don’t get in his way. 

Scarred by the war in Afghanistan, John is back home in Sydney, looking for a quiet life. When his aging mother is injured in Paris, he brings her home so he can look after her. He wants to do the right thing, but Betty Lawrence is nobody’s little old lady. As a photojournalist, she survived Vietnam, Lebanon and Sarajevo, she isn’t about to let a broken leg slow her down.

Hidden inside a container-load of Betty’s furniture is a forgotten suitcase that once belonged to the terrorist who killed John’s father. The discovery of its contents triggers a vicious power struggle between crime gangs, and forces John into a desperate fight to save what is left of his family.

The first book in the John Lawrence series is a page-turning thriller. Full of compelling characters and surprises, it is set on Sydney’s mean streets, far from the sun-drenched beaches and famous landmarks.
