Editorial Reviews

Review

"An intriguing debut and an author to watch in A K Lakelett, Remember Me? is definitely recommended. As with the best of crime novels, Remember Me? proves a tense and compelling debut as A K Lakelett takes a tried and tested formula and adds her own impressive twist. Creating something innovative in such a popular genre is no mean feat and here she shares her story as a play, cutting between action scenes and chorus. Green, Ford and Carter are deftly drawn and in eschewing the genre tendency towards stoic stereotypes Lakelett delivers rich protagonists who are plausibly imbued with the depth and characteristics of their roles. This makes them feel both authentic and refreshingly original and with an enticing plot she manages to maintain intrigue and a satisfying balance between suspense and transparency which armchair detectives will undoubtedly appreciate. The pace is measured, the twists are well pitched, we become involved in her narratives web of mystery, but more importantly she's built the foundations for what appears to be an innovative and promising new series."
Review by Book Viral - Sept 2016
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The idea of writing a modern book based on the ancient Greek plays with a chorus, and action from two different viewpoints is intriguing and innovative.
This is the framework in Remember Me? Faukon Abbey Mysteries Book 1 by A.K. Lakelett. Set in the present day, there is a murder, which is investigated by the police on one hand and a local journalist on the other. The chorus is that of the murderer, whose identity is revealed at the end. The action takes place in the west of England around Exeter when a newly-arrived local dignitary and his rather unsuitable wife buy up and renovate a large, expensive house in the village. All is not as it seems, however, and his unexplained demise in the local woods leaves no clue as to how or why he was murdered, in fact there is doubt for some time as to whether the police are investigating a murder or a death from natural causes.
A.K. Lakelett introduces us to many different characters, but has described them so vividly that each one is easy to identify. We meet Eric's current and previous wives, his daughter, the two-man police team, the reporter and a few minor characters that get a brief mention. The narrative is written in the present tense, which for me makes for a more difficult read, but that is my personal taste. In places it's necessary to drop into the past tense for the back story, which leads us to the motive for Eric's murder, and intertwines with present day events. You have to think carefully about the previous actions to see where they fit in and a question asked at the end still puzzles me. I would need to read the book a second time to be sure I had the right answer. I must admit to being surprised by the final outcome, I was not expecting it, and the author did a great job in leading the reader to suspect one character after another of committing the dreadful dead.

From the Author

The Faukon Abbey Mysteries take in place in Faukon Abbey, an old market town in Devon, originally built around a hunting castle and a nunnery,the prioresses of which were into falconry. It is a tourist friendly and welcoming place near the Dartmoor, only 30 miles from Exeter. We have a nice old church, St Katherine's, multiple shops, a bank, grocery stores and even a hardware store. We also have two inns, a couple of pubs, a hotel and a couple of tea/coffee shops. Faukon Abbey, with less than 3,000 inhabitants, is nowadays mostly known for its Annual Garden Arts fair (from gnomes to advanced art) in late August. Especially the glass gnomes produced by the local artists working with the Gwedrow Faukon Abbey Glass Works are very popular. All proceeds of those go to charities.
---------------
The first one is called "Remember Me?" -- A seemingly ordinary man, with no enemies is found dead in Tersel Woods, with no identification, not even a mobile phone. Clearly someone wanted him dead, but why?

In the second book,  "Missing Alibi" a successful author of romance, erotica and mysteries, is found dead after a party. Was it something she wrote that made someone angry enough to kill?

I'm currently working on the third book in the series.
