Author Lawson Brook

Genre Crime / Thriller / Erotic

Book Blurb

A dark and erotic serial killer thriller…

When Richard Neville finds a dead body in his hotel room and has no recollection of how it got there, he knows there is only one thing he can do: - cover his tracks.

He has no intention of giving up what he has: - a successful career in business, a beautiful wife and two children, and an amazing sex life with his gay best friend.

But when misfortune befalls him again and his memory fails him, he begins to question…. Is he guilty of the crimes? Or is someone trying to frame him?

Murder Oblivion is a dark and erotically thrilling crime novel about a life spiralling out of control where nothing seems to make sense, and where the story twists and turns towards a shocking conclusion.


Il Duomo towered above me in all of its splendour. As I stood looking up at it from the piazza below, it cast a shadow upon me, blocking out the moonlight. A tunnel of warm wind blew on my face and I closed my eyes for a few seconds, feeling the warmth of the continental air as it forced its way through the city centre streets. It was like I was in a dream. I felt as if I was floating for a moment without a care in the world. The noise of people walking by and talking became mute and I felt as if I was the only person in the piazza. The buildings around the Milan piazza were all lit up like a Christmas tree. It reminded me of a song I loved. ‘Light the Night’ by Andy Burrows. I could hear the song playing out in my head. What a wonderful night. The stars were twinkling, the moon sat majestically in the sky and all was well. The song kept playing in my head – I felt so pleased to be alive. The people on the square came back into focus. I started to hear them again as they wandered by. Their chatting, their footsteps, their laughter. I could hear the chink of glasses from a restaurant and bar nearby. The square was alive with people, yet I felt all alone here. Just me and the Duomo di Milano. I wished that I was on its roof looking across the city. What a view it would be.

‘Hey!’ someone shouted. I could hear it in the distance, but it didn’t properly register.

‘Hey Rich!’ There it was again. And then I felt a friendly shove and I woke up from my peaceful oblivion. ‘Hey – what’s up? You just got up and left?’

‘Sorry Marco’, I replied. ‘I just needed to come to the piazza’.

Reality came flooding back to me. I had been woken from my blissful unawareness and my mind started filling in the blanks and I began to realise the situation I was in. ‘Oh God’, I thought. My stomach sank to the floor. I felt as if everyone was suddenly looking at me, staring at me. As if I was a member of a freak show. The noise of the people in the square became louder and louder and started to hurt my ears. The noise became more piercing.

I could see the living statues in the square; people pretending to be statues but moving when people walked past. I wanted to go over and push them off their stands. I don’t know why; I just felt the urge! And then a child nearby started crying and screaming. She kept on screaming and crying, getting louder and louder. I felt like ripping that doll out of her hand and ripping its head off or ripping her head off.
