Rings of Smoke by Diane O'Toole

indie ebook cover

Erin Fallon is the eldest daughter of an Irish immigrant who took his family to a small town on the Lancashire/Cumbria border for what he believed to be a better life. It was what her mother wanted, but once she got it, it wasn’t enough. She had to have more.
Leonard Fitch is an eminent neurosurgeon. His mother was never satisfied either, and her constant demands led to his father being killed in a motor accident. Leonard loved his father; he was the only person to treat him with kindness and affection. He hated his mother but could never stand up to her. Tormented and ridiculed throughout his childhood, Leonard swore to exact revenge on womankind in general, but mothers in particular.
At a secluded lodge in the depths of Bleazedale Forest, for four years he carries out the most abominable atrocities with impunity. He takes girls on their birthday and keeps them holed up for a full twelve months before killing them and sending their mothers a birthday card with a picture of their beloved little girl, dead and with their severed feet placed either side of their head.

About The Author...

indie author

Diane O'Toole


I was born in Manchester into a large family of seven brothers and five sisters.
As a child our playground was Belle Vue, one of the largest amusement parks in Europe. There are many stories I could tell about those days, and maybe one day I will. I have always been known as a storyteller.
As a very young girl, I developed a voracious passion for books, and I read all the classics: Dickens, Eliot, Trollope, and Hardy.
During my teens it was Stephen King and James Herbert, and then I got a taste of the political thriller with Daniel Silva’s “Moscow Rules”.
For “Rings of Smoke”, I drew on real life experiences, particularly in respect of the protagonist Erin Fallon. With stalkers, a runaway mother and abduction, I had the bones for what I believed was a good story.
I first published the book on Amazon in October 2012 in order to test the market. Although I thought I had something sellable, I needed to know what total strangers thought about it and I have to say that the feedback was very encouraging. The few negative reviews were most helpful in showing me where the story was lacking, resulting in a much improved third edition, which led to the book deal with BNBS in September 2015.
