Their greatest fear was contaminating an ancient Antarctic lake, buried beneath the ice for millions of years. They little knew the catastrophe they were about to unleash.

Welcome to the high octane world of Olivia Wolfe.

As an investigative journalist, Wolfe lives her life in constant peril. Hunted by numerous enemies who are seldom what the first seem, she must unravel a complex web of lies to uncover an even more terrifying truth.

From the poppy palaces of Afghanistan and Antarctica's forbidding wind-swept ice sheets, to a top-secret military base in the Nevada desert, Wolfe's journey will ultimately lead her to a man who would obliterate civilisation. She must make an impossible choice: save a life - or prevent the death of millions.

Fast Moving Thriller


Olivia Wolfe is a feisty journalist with a conscience, addicted to warzones & challenging personalities. I was attracted to the Antarctic setting but much of the action is in other countries, and each reveal the author's eye for detail. Impressive plot twists. Evidence of through research into biological warfare, police and espionage procedures, let alone security for the President's family. Olivia always seems to be on the run and in physical danger. Rarely suffers from bruises or fatigue despite lots of fighting. But I really liked the way L.A. Larkin provided intelligent solutions, like leaving information in a Dropbox with new password, while on the run. The first person viewpoint of the stalker seemed contrived, but did provide plot links. At first I was confused by the number of Antarctic expeditioners and had trouble distinguishing them. Later, the Russian became an enigmatic, fascinating character , her match. This book is definitely filmic and I'd willingly read more of Olivia. Wonderful to find a resourceful and highly skilled female sleuth operating internationally. And to have strong secondary characters who have full story potential.





Is LA Larkin the new Robert Ludlum? Devour is so cleverly written, the plots so intriguing and the characters make you care. Olivia Wolfe is the central character, an investigative journalist, who unearths the criminals and terrorists who have evaded prosecution. With some dark secrets of her own, Wolfe is an edgy, resilient character who reminds me of a less damaged Lisbeth Salander, but crossed with the gritty determination of Prime Suspect's Jane Tennison. Add to this the mysterious, ex-military Vitaly Yushkov, the hard-bitten Dan Casburn from Counter Terrorism Command, ex-detective Jerry Butcher, the team of Antarctic scientists headed by Professor Heatherton, and a cyber stalker, whose identity is an ongoing mystery. Set primarily at a remote camp in Antarctica where the first murder takes place, Larkin made me feel as if I was in Antarctica experiencing the deadly cold and the equally deadly threat of a killer in their midst. Devour is unputdownable.



Devour will hook you from start to finish.


I had the good fortune to win this book pre release. What a lucky win. Not my normal reading genre but I started reading straight away. Immediately I was hooked and dragged from start to finish, against my will. It is a story of historical achievement wonderfully woven with deception and danger. The characters, particularly Olivia Wolfe and Yushkov, are so intriguing that they will remain in your thoughts long after the story is finished. I highly recommend Devour. Just make sure you have lots of free time. You are not going to want to put it down!
