Book Description

Lara Leatherstone - not her real name, she got it from an internet Porn Star Name Generator...

...And Connor Reeves, also not his real name, as it turns out - how he came by his, is less clear...

Both are obliged to work their way through the To Do List of 'Hollywood Hit-Men' - a breed mostly preoccupied with gold chains, impressing barmaids, and shady contracts - erasing these unwanted pests with the minimum of paperwork. Or pay.

When she's not under surveillance by head office, Lara spends her time juggling a night job in bar security, an only child with a zombie fixation, and what passes for a social life in the small hours in between. And the small matter of ongoing internal scrutiny, by her own highly-self-monitoring personality disorders.

She is often distracted by her own psychotic train of thought, and analyses the dysfunctional relationships she sees in everyday life, because she’s never had one.

When head office try to set her up in a team with a wingman, her main concern is they’re trying to manufacture a weakness that they can manipulate her with - not to mention once they agree on a working colleague, Pest-Control-sniper-turned-police-officer Connor, that he might be quite manipulative too...

Death & The City, released in two parts as Books One and Two, comprises the first instalment in the Tales Of The Deathrunners series.

More About the Author

Lisa Scullard has been writing since it was possible to make marks with a pen, although not always on the page itself, and more recently since it was possible to balance both a keyboard on one knee and cup of tea in the other hand.

Her first novel-length work, "Living Hell", was written at the age of only 18, followed by experiments in writing screenplays, articles and reviews - before returning to novel-writing, attempting literary fiction for adults, but finding it impossible to keep the humour at bay.

She considers herself a compulsive writer, and lifestyle avoidant. Likes Iron Fist shoes/clothing and Hell Bunny, covers and remixes of Depeche Mode tracks, ice cream soda, Barbie (not so much in her puppy-parlour phase), Chinese food, graphic novels, and Prince Harry. Oh, and ginger nut biscuits. Yum ;) Any order or combination of the above is fine... Would like to travel more, with some good company one day.

You can follow Lisa on Twitter: @aka_VoodooSpice and visit her blogs on: and or website

She can also be found on Goodreads, and Lulu.

LS says: More books will soon be available in both Kindle and paperback - check back here for details as they join the list. Thanks for visiting!
