Book Description

The DREAM which made her life a NIGHTMARE.

A string of murders dating back to 1987 and in all that time only one witness and she doesn't even know she's a witness!

Young lawyer Gaby has recently married and should be having the time of her life and yet a strange recurring dream is haunting her; she visits a psychologist and a psychic as she desperately attempts to figure it out. Then......it hits her; the memory floods back! Suddenly everything she thought she knew about herself, her family and her past is cast into doubt.

Someone she loves is a KILLER.

But who will believe her? He is popular, successful, charming and credible. The police will say that she has no evidence. People will call her mad, paranoid and spiteful. She must act fast; he is becoming more frenzied and is eyeing up his next victim.

Gaby selects her allies with great care, trusting few in her duplicitous new world and knowing every new piece of evidence she uncovers makes her more vulnerable.

She sets about assembling the evidence: secretively and urgently, before he strikes again. However, he gets wind of her suspicions and this time when he kills, it's someone very close to Gaby, someone who knows the truth.

Suddenly she realises that she is up against more than just him: he has eminent and influential friends and the scales of justice are rigged against her.

What would you do? What will Gaby do?

A book that will make you wonder if you can ever trust anyone again and the safe answer.....is NO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thriller worthy of Hitchcock! February 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ever wonder what happened to those stories filled with suspense with twists and turns? You know the kind that Alfred Hitchcock produced, making us bite our nails and worry for the hero or heroine! Well Lisa Gordon has penned that type of thriller and it's worth reading. Her heroine, Gaby thought she was leading an ideal life. She was a rising star in her legal firm and just married a handsome man. Then the nightmares started plaguing her and memories of a childhood trauma erupted. To save her sanity Gaby must delve into the secrets of a serial killer and risk her own life to bring him to justice.

I really enjoyed this suspenseful novel! It reminded me of a Hitchcock thriller, filled with danger but not depending on blood, guts, and gore like modern novels. This is a thriller that delivers chills while chasing an elusive killer. You won't know until the final pages if this clever killer escapes. Gaby evolved from a society socialite into a brave woman fighting for justice. Pick up this book and enjoy a story worthy of Hitchcock.

5.0 out of 5 stars `Missing British Woman Washed up on Moroccan Shore' October 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
British author Lisa Gordon, born in Johannesburg where she studied Law at Witwatersrand University before moving to England to complete her studies in Industrial Economics at the University of Warwick. Interestingly she also studied with the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London and it is in this capacity that she appears on BBC. She also campaigns against injustice and unfair trials abroad. She is fascinated by the subject of astrology and she explains her passion for her subject in her statement, `Growing up in Johannesburg was truly an amazing experience which I will always treasure. It is a city of bright colors, vibrant people, stark contrasts and extremes: extreme wealth, extreme poverty, extreme emotions, extreme thunderstorms, often extreme violence and yet every minute I lived there I felt alive. As I sit here in safe and picturesque England I long to leave this sterility and head for the chaos of Africa where somehow every minute means so much more. Perhaps my image of my homeland is very much my metaphor for life: that at the extremes of existence one is truly living and experiencing this thing we call life to the full. I am incurably inquisitive and if there is something going on on this planet, I want to know about it. I ended up with a degree in Economics, however the economics and financial world never beckoned and so at 23 I took a pretty sharp left turn and decided to study astrology. I have always loved helping people and I am fascinated by the meaning of life, destiny and karma and so I often think it was fate that prompted me to take this direction which in many ways has been a difficult route, but very revealing in terms of self-discovery. I was the resident astrologer on many local UK radio stations for many years. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent murder mystery. October 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lisa Gordon is fast becoming a favorite author of mine after reading this (and another of her books) and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery well written.

The book opens with two teenagers in holiday mood swimming in the canal on the Norfolk Broads, but the atmosphere quickly becomes sinister as ‘the boy’ , not getting his own way ends up drowning the girl he's with to keep her quiet – the scary thing is, he’s terrified by what he’s done, but also exhilarated and enjoys the feeling of sexual arousal and power it gives him. He plans carefully how he can dispose of her body in a cold and systematic way and then carries on with his life, lying to cover up what happened. We know this will not end here. She is only the first.
The story switches to Gaby on her wedding day – it’s amazing and a happy moment with her sister and brother and her father, though tinged with memories of a family tragedy decades earlier. If you want to know more, please just read it, it’s great and what I really liked about this book is the intricacy of the plot and the level of detail and the fact that it unfolds slowly but surely – sometimes this makes it agonizing but it sure keeps you turning those pages. The story becomes Gaby’s and we see her develop through her determination to find out what happened in her life and she becomes a stronger and more self-aware individual because of it – this transformation is extremely well managed and gives a strong core to the novel. There are also some secondary characters to enjoy – Gaby’s sister Meghan, Robbie the PI, the streetwise Chantelle are my favourites. I don’t know if Lisa Gordon has any plans to develop these characters further, but I hope she does as I’d love to read more about them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read September 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lisa Gordon is a true literary genius! It's been a long time since I've read a GOOD suspense/thriller book, and this one did not disappoint one bit.

Gaby is the witness of a murder, but doesn't realize it until her dreams make her aware. What is she supposed to do now? Someone that she loves is the one behind it all, but no one is going to believe her. He is more powerful than she ever imagined him to be, and she doesn't know what to do. She tries to gather up enough evidence to bring to the police, and tries to figure out who she can trust with her secret.

I stayed up all night reading this book; completely captivated! I couldn't wait to figure out what was going to happen next. This book contained everything that a person could want in a good story; mystery and suspense. True page turner, and the author truly knows how to make readers put themselves into Gaby's shoes. Highly recommend.

"Growing up in Johannesburg was truly an amazing experience which I will always treasure. It is a city of bright colors, vibrant people, stark contrasts and extremes: extreme wealth, extreme poverty, extreme emotions, extreme thunderstorms, often extreme violence and yet every minute I lived there I felt alive. As I sit here in safe and picturesque England I long to leave this sterility and head for the chaos of Africa where somehow every minute means so much more. Perhaps my image of my homeland is very much my metaphor for life: that at the extremes of existence one is truly living and experiencing this thing we call life to the full. I am incurably inquisitive and if there is something going on on this planet, I want to know about it. At school I was a rebel - no not the sort of rebel who smokes in the loo and makes out behind the bike shed -. I was more of an ideas rebel, I wanted to think for myself and never just accept what I was told.

Although I studied Law at Uni, my secret ambition was always to act or work in the arts; but of course you have to keep the family happy by making some sensible decisions you know. I ended up with a degree in Economics, however the economics and financial world never beckoned and so at 23 I took a pretty sharp left turn and decided to study astrology. I have always loved helping people and I am fascinated by the meaning of life, destiny and karma and so I often think it was fate that prompted me to take this direction which in many ways has been a difficult route, but very revealing in terms of self-discovery. I was the resident astrologer on many local UK radio stations for many years. Although my foray into astrology may have left my spiritual life richer, my bank balance was a basket case, so it was back to the drawing board career wise and I began studying to be a Chartered Accountant. Bored to tears with studying audit, I decided to start writing a book one night. I finished my Chartered Accounting exams and two novels at the same time.

The strange twists and turns of my own life and my own constant querying over whether I had a destiny or a fate inspired the theme of my novel - A Sealed Fate."
