All Roger Maynard wants is justice

Dead Lucky on Sale Now!

The drug addicts are causing havoc for the police and the community and making the centre of Trentbridge a no-go zone. It’s all down to a new illegal substance called ‘Monkey Dust’ that is far more powerful than Heroin, yet sells for a fraction of the price. 

The police believe it’s being supplied by the O’Connor’s. A local criminal family who never let anything or anyone gets in their way. But unless they can prove it the entire town is in danger of being brought to its knees.

If they can’t stop these criminals then maybe there’s someone who can?

Roger Maynard and the O’Connor’s have crossed paths before. All he wants is justice. But just how far is he prepared to go? And does he really stand a chance against a hardened criminal family who has spent years outsmarting the police?

It’s good versus evil and the odds are stacked against him – unless he’s dead lucky!

Detective James Sheldon thought he had everything. He loved his tough and demanding job. He had a beautiful wife and two incredible kids. But, in an instant, everything was taken away from him. He never recovered after finding out his family was killed in a horrific hit and run.

Eighteen months later, James is begging for loose change on the corner, homeless, and contemplating ending it all. But, his best friend pulls him back from the brink. He shows Sheldon that there might still be a life worth living.

Then in a strange twist, he wins the lotto. £168 million would make just about anyone’s life better. But, the money only manages to make things worse for former detective James Sheldon. His best friend, the one that saved him, is missing—and a vengeful drug dealer is stalking James.

What should be a life-changing win, instead leads James into a dangerous game where he must not only do battle with drug dealers and powerful underworld figures, but he must also fight his own demons.

Is there still enough dignity left in James Sheldon to defeat his enemies or will he succumb to the twin temptations of alcohol and gambling to numb his pain?

Loved It!
Simplistic in style, easy to follow and a thoroughly likeable main character. Is there really any James Sheldon`s out there? I wanted him to just keep giving. Looking forward to the next book.

Amazing story that I had to finish it.
It might be fiction but gave me some insight of real life outside me. It could be a good film.

An Entertaining Novel with a Social Message
This is the first of a series and the author’s first novel.
Most of us have fantasised at some point in our life about what we would do if we won a lottery. Lee Wood provides us with a surprising yet believable scenario set in suburban UK and featuring contemporary social issues including drugs, prostitution, corruption, homelessness and the plight of the working class.
I thought Wood did a particularly good job in describing in a matter of fact way how circumstances shape our lives and how one thing can lead to the next, which leads to the next …
I look forward to reading more from this author.
