The Roof

Peter Harkness is a brilliant prototype engineer, and one of the few humans lucky enough to score a job, at a company that designs automatons. 
The irony is not lost on him.
Corporations are manufacturing countless automatons to replace human workers, and not just in menial jobs.
His first day of work is spent gingerly avoiding the numerous protest zones of the jobless that appear along his route. He hunches his shoulders and pulls his head down as he passes by. He understands their anger, but he has no choice. He must eat. It’s a devil’s bargain.
He makes uneasy allies where he least expects, and finds enemies that were waiting for him all along. 
Peter must determine how, or if, he will deal with the madness around him. Merely crunching numbers won’t be enough.
A near-future dystopian world, reminiscent of Asimov, Heinlein and the golden age of science fiction.

Mortuary Arts

Katherine O’Donnell was born with a disfiguring strawberry birthmark across the bottom of her face. In 1880s London, that was enough to discourage suitors. Love was something for which she yearned, but never found within her reach. 
Out of necessity, she became adept at hiding inside her home and behind makeups she formulated and applied herself. 
When tragedy upended her modest life and dumped her out onto the streets, she was bereft of options.
Desperate, she answered an advertisement for a mortuary assistant, applying makeup to cadavers. She knew what she had to do when asked what skills she possessed that qualified her for the position. Kate brazenly used her kerchief to wiped away the concealing powders and stand before them, birthmark revealed and prominent.
She learned to find beauty in her newfound art, forming masques to make the dead resemble the living. 
If only her education had ended there. 

A Victorian-era novella of growing suspense and horror, with 26 interior illustrations done in the style of the period.

Shattering Truths by Kyrian Lyndon (Kindle or Paperback)

Some truths can be deadly. Danielle isn’t mopey or filled with teenage angst. Danielle and her cousin were abducted, drugged, and raped. But her cousin doesn’t remember, and her best friend won’t believe her. Now, her predators have returned, stalking her, harassing her at every turn. Nightmares plague her sleep, pushing her to the brink of exhaustion. Isolated, terrified, and grief-stricken, Danielle is paralyzed, unable to face the unmerciful world around her. Can she awaken her spirit and blossom into a woman of defiance and courage before the darkness eclipses her sanity? Shattering Truths, the first volume in the Deadly Veils series, is a haunting and heartbreaking coming of age story. In the tradition of Judy Blume, and following in the footsteps of Thirteen Reasons Why, author Kyrian Lyndon doesn’t shy away from exploring the darker side of life that every teenage girl fears. Filled with suspense, a heart wrenching emotional journey, and twists that will leave you breathless, Shattering Truths will take hold of you on page one and never let go. Shattering Truths is a revised edition of Deadly Veils Book One, previously published by Kyrian Lyndon in 2016 under the title Provenance of Bondage.The previous edition is no longer available

Deception and mystery…

When disillusioned detective Charlie Best finds himself the beneficiary of a substantial and unexpected inheritance, it’s his chance to escape from the thankless task of policing the violence and misery of Glasgow’s drug barons. He moves to a sunnier country and a brighter future. 

But a chance encounter in a Spanish bar and a pretty hitchhiker combine to draw him back into the murky world he had been trying to leave behind. It was a world more dark and dangerous than he had ever imagined. 

Stuck among the French vineyards, Charlie finds himself needing to keep in touch with events back in his native Glasgow. How is he to do that? Who exactly are the people who help him? And who exactly is his mysterious neighbour who always seems to be hanging around?

Who will win the turf battle among the drug gangs in Glasgow? And will the Spanish super-detective solve the case his colleagues abandoned? 

And why has long-lost lover Ahmed come back looking for his sweetheart from his student days?

A myriad of questions needing answers in a fast moving thriller where intrigue, love and violence fight for supremacy.
