This mystery will have you guessing, usually incorrectly, throughout the wild ride from England to Tuscany and beyond.  Intricate plots, complex characters, heroes and villains await you!

This is a story that you can truly lose yourself in the adventure and cannot stop until you finish.  Don't want to spoil any surprises but will say it has action, adventure, and more twist and turns than the Col de Turini in France.  

The characters, both primary and secondary, are brilliantly developed and simply draw you into their lives and adventures with ease.  The all produce surprises and keep you guessing in the best possible way.

The writing and plotting are first rate and offer you ample opportunities to lose yourself in the story and work your mind trying to unravel what is really going on here.

True love, betrayal, new love, friendship, and so much more; it is all here.  We see how the past can trap you but also set you free.  Find out who you can really trust; and who you must destroy to survive.

Take a chance and enjoy an exhilarating ride.

Inherited is an excellent mystery adventure filled with intrigue, betrayal, love and loyalty.  There are surprises at every twist in the plot.  The plot is compelling and filled with action. The characters are very well developed and have great depth.  At times you won't know who is a loyal but dangerous friend, or an enemy out to destroy the main characters. You won't want to stop once you begin this well written tale.

Inherited will take you on a wild ride through England and Tuscany, with many a bump along the way, ultimately leaving you breathless. 

Gabriel's story is unique, bizarre and uplifting all at once, as he battles the demons of the past, survives the challenges of the present and looks forward to a future filled with hope. 

How this story unravels will keep you turning the pages. A super read!

A true action/mystery that grips your imagination and keeps you guessing from start to finish. The finely interwoven plot lines are expertly written and executed. Every chapter answers questions that the reader will ask, but they will also leave you with more questions and keep you coming back for more. Our main character, Gabriel Redbrick, is a man with a past, a dark past that he is unaware of, does he want to know of his past or not? Will he discover the dark secrets of his past, or will he remain unaware? Only Gabriel can answer those questions, and you will only find out by reading. I will give you this warning, get yourself comfortable with a drink and a snack because once you start you will not want to stop reading. This is a highly recommended read deserving of more than five stars.

Unraveling his own past is no easy job for Gabriel, especially as it seems his own life, and that of others, is under continuing threat.   Does he actually want to no? And who are these new people in his life? Friends or foes?

all this plus a burgeoning love story make for a great read.  There is a science fiction element which become believable, even to non-fans.  
An excellent read, even more so now that it is complete and you don’t have to wait for the next chapter as lomax’s loyal fans have been forced to do!  

Final verdict: a distinctive, challenging read by a seriously good writer.  Well done!

A romance wrapped in a mystery with a dark past with more than a few bumps, plot twists and bizarre happenings along the way.  Read the comments following each chapter to get an idea of the diverse speculation attendant to each. 

If you like a good story told well that surprises, frightens, and captures your imagination, then I encourage you to start at the beginning and hang on for the ride!

Amazing story with elements of thriller, action, spy and detective novels, SF, family drama and love. Some parts reminded me on “The Bourne Identity” (original novel and 1988. movie with Richard Chamberlain as Bourne). Great characters, interesting plots, beautiful scenery of Tuscany… There are so many twists and turns that, at the end, you must follow the words said by the one of the characters – thrust no one.

Maybe, the best recommendation would be my own experience with this story – once I have started reading, I couldn’t leave it till the late in the night…or early in the morning to be precise.
