Let’s meet Jake Carrington from All the Deadly Lies, a thriller, by Marian Lanouette. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Hi Kayelle, thank you for hosting us today.

All the Deadly Lies

Genre Thriller
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Homicide detective Jake Carrington takes murder personally…
The victim was bludgeoned, stripped, and left for dead. Shanna Wagner deserves justice—and there’s no better cop than Lieutenant Jake Carrington to find her killer. The brutality of the crime reminds Jake of his sister’s murder seventeen years ago, and the remorseless man responsible, now up for parole.
Then another woman is killed—and Jake goes dangerously close to the edge. He’ll have to face his personal demons and focus his formidable skills if he hopes to stop a vicious murderer from striking again—and hold on to his career, and his life…

Introducing Jake Carrington

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Wilkesbury, CT
Profession: Homicide Cop
Ethnicity: Irish American
What do you look like?
I’m six one, a hundred and seventy five pounds, with green eyes, and reddish brown hair with a sturdy medium build. In cop speak I’d be 6’1″, 175, green/chestnut, medium/solid.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Mia Andrews
Please tell us about your education.
I studied criminal justice at UConn in CT. I had attended there on a full sports scholarship. In my senior year I had an offer to play for my favorite team but turned them down. I had decided after my sister’s murder to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a cop.
Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
I think it’s pretty cut and dry. That said, the job taught me there’s shades of gray.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
That’s easy, but every few years I have to face him down when I attend his parole hearings with the pictures of my sister’s crime scene. It’s George Spaulding. That murdering no good son of a…
What is your biggest need?
Peace, which seems to elude me.
What would help you face hardship and meet any challenge?
My partner and best friend Louie Romanelli and his wife have been with me throughout most my life and have carried me in times of despair.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
I was a selfish teenager. I couldn’t wait to meet up with my girlfriend and turned down my sister who had asked for a ride to her friend’s house.

I’d turn the clock back and give Eva the ride she had asked for that fateful day.

Marian Lanouette

A self-described tough blonde from Brooklyn, Marian Lanouette grew up as one of ten children. As far back as she could remember Marian loved to read. She was especially intrigued by the Daily News crime reports. Tragically, someone she knew was murdered. The killer never found.
Her Jake Carrington thriller are inspired by her admiration for police work, her experience in working a crematorium, and her desire to write books where good prevails, even in the darkest times. Marian lives in New England with her husband.
