“In this brief review it is quite difficult to convey the full flavor ofthis mesmerizing feast of a book…However, best of all we must notforget Lachi’s distinctive, unique and sometimes even chilling voice as she crafts a stunning, sprawling novel where enormous risks are taken, not least that of demanding our understanding for the monstrous andunthinkable. In addition, her development of plot is perfectlycalibrated as she maintains all of the elements of the yarn insuspension.”

“Youmay not realize it when you first pick up this book, but you have stepped unsuspectinginto a whimsical, captivating, unpredictable world and you will not be let outuntil the final stroke of Lachi’s pen.Thiswas a thoroughly enjoyable read; all 365 pages easily done in one sitting. Asemotionally exhausting as it is exciting, the Ivory Staff introduces Lachi as aconsummate writer.  Idare say this timeless story will age well; I shall be returning to it againand again. “

All three books in the stunning, ground-breaking and award-winning Rude Boy USA trilogy by Victoria Bolton are available together for the first time! Perfect for gift givers, e-book collectors, and fans new to the series, the collection includes Rude Boy USA, BunnyWine, and The Tide is High.

Rude Boy USA:

book_cover_regular
WINNER OF THE 2016 READERS’ FAVORITE BOOK AWARD IN FICTION-DRAMA
WINNER OF THE 2016 PACIFIC BOOK AWARD FOR CRIME FICTION

Say good-bye to the era of godfathers. The Chimera Group has put a new face on organized crime.

Mob boss Bernie Banks and his associates—John, Ben, and Jerome—differ from your ordinary Sicilian and Irish mob families. Two white, two black, they style themselves after the Rude Boy culture made popular in Jamaica.

Operating as a shell investment company supported by illegal activities, the Chimera Group hopes to become as powerful as other crime families and gain respect from the Cosa Nostra. Bernie, a war veteran of Jewish and Greek descent, begins his business in his apartment and grows it into a multimillion-dollar empire. He and his crew resemble a more sophisticated subculture of urban street gangsters with their Ray-Ban sunglasses, loafers, and debonair style. But they want fear and admiration.
Their efforts draw the attention of the rival Ambrosino family, and they face internal strife when one of the associates begins dating a former Playboy Club waitress who wants in on the group.

Will they make it to the top, or will they fall?

BunnyWine:

book_jacket__regular
John LeBlanc’s ready to end his lawbreaking ways, but he can’t escape the reach of the crime family he used to lead.

Victoria Bolton’s back with BunnyWine, the sequel to Rude Boy USA. Bolton revisits John and the murderous Chimera group as its members leave more bodies in their wake.

John, who creates a wine based off of Playboy Club Celia “Bunny” Jones’s rise to crescendo, moves to Jamaica and marries Bunny after their company becomes successful. He gives up his life as a mob boss to become a respectable businessman and market BunnyWine as Bunny adjusts to not getting the life of a gangster’s wife she was expecting.

John may be gone but he’s not forgotten, and ambitious criminal prosecutor Mario Pasquale, whose goal is to rid New York City of the mob, strikes a deal with jailed Chimera member Ben Berardi to let him out of jail in exchange for any information he can get on John. But when Ben falls into old and dangerous habits, the body count starts to rise.

Can John and Bunny escape the life they used to live?

The Tide is High:

cover4_brighter_jpeg
In this third installment of Victoria Bolton’s Rude Boy USA series, we rejoin John and Bunny LeBlanc upon their return to his hometown of New York City, where John has big plans on the political scene. The Chimera group has been resurrected with John at its head, and the Dixon-Rhodos Foundation is alive and well.

However, among those who dare stand in the way of the infamous John LeBlanc and his friends is the prosecutor who tried John for murder and lost—Mario Pasquale. Mario, John’s opponent in the race to become mayor of New York, realizes the public has taken a shine to John—to an extent Mario hadn’t anticipated. In light of this disturbing development, Mario decides to fight a little dirty. 

In a quietly engineered backroom deal, he enlists the help of up-and-coming journalist Paul Aaron, an ambitious man seeking to build his professional reputation on exposing the criminal underpinnings of the Chimera group. After all, who would want a former mobster for mayor?

Then again—crossing John could cost the duo much more than an election and a sensational news scoop. Is it worth the risk?

Where do you turn when there’s no one left to trust…? 

At sleepy Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, the Commanding General’s wife Bunny Harris has been murdered, her head decapitated, and the Arabic word for “dust” scrawled in blood over the bed. 

Jack Garrett, a Los Angeles lawyer and former special ops soldier who is grieving after the recent death of his wife, starts working on the case with Cameron Wells, a beautiful, ambitious attorney who began her career in military intelligence. 

Frank O’Connor is charged with the rape and murder of Bunny. 

He denies the charges, but admits that they did have an affair. 

O’Connor requests that Garrett defend him. 

The CIA brings in Phillip Rubie and his daughter Simone, who kidnap Garrett’s son and then release him with a message to Garrett to back off the case. 

Evidence points to the General’s involvement in war crimes, killing Iraqi POWs with a nerve agent called “dust.” 

When a reporter tells Garrett that he believes Bunny was killed with this same nerve agent, her body is exhumed and she melts out of her casket… 

During the trial, the prosecutor receives a CD showing Bunny and O’Connor at an S and M club, where O’Connor appears to cut off her head with a machete. 

O’Connor is offered a deal, but refuses, citing his innocence once more, meanwhile Simone believes she has evidence of O’Connor’s innocence. 

With everyone harboring dark secrets, Garrett isn’t sure who he can trust. 

And when his son makes a shocking discovery, the case, and Garrett’s entire life, are turned upside down.
