A Life's Work

John T. Leonard

Oliver Bennett was only five years old when his mother was brutally raped and murdered and he came face to face with her killer.

Oliver has a strong and loving relationship with his father, but his childhood is deeply troubled despite psychological therapy and counselling. When Oliver decides to join the police force, his father is hopeful that Oliver has found a way to come to terms with his mother's death.

But Mary Bennett's killer has been released into the community after serving a life sentence. A murderer is free to live his life despite having cruelly ended a mother's life and forever blighted a child's future.

Has Oliver joined the police to dedicate his life to law and order, or does he have a more sinister motivation?

John T. Leonard has worked for the emergency services for over twenty years. His first writing project began in 2005, but was interrupted when fatherhood beckoned and was never finished. Unfortunately, given certain events since then, it may now be lost forever.

Since then, when discussing this lost project, it was suggested that he begin afresh. This led to a semi-autobiographical first release. Since then, Leonard has written continuously and has since completed a number of projects. Primus was his second project, and was originally self-published in October 2017.

Leonard primarily writes crime thrillers which, in part, draw on his true-life experiences. But, as he is an avid science-fiction and superhero fan, a recent project with a recurring character was targeted at a younger audience, specifically his own children, depicting his own take on a super-hero origin story.
