• T.R. Croke This was the original cover when The Devil's Luck first launched on 7 November 2016.
  • T.R. Croke The idea of a new cover for THE DEVIL'S LUCK evolved from the design process for book 2, THE PRIZE PRINCE. My cover designer, Andrew, suggested we introduce an image for Kate. So, along with my better half, I pored over hundreds of model images for expressions that might capture an essence of Kate. In the end, we settled on this one. Which cover works best for you?

The Devil's Luck and The Prize Prince

Books 1 & 2 in the Detective Kate Bowen Mystery Thriller Series


  • From midway through chapter two I was hooked, like a greyhound after a hare turning each page, chasing down the story. It’s engaging, exciting and very fast paced.

  • This debut conspiracy (terrorism) thriller is a truly realistic read; an inside look into this sort of world where detectives are pitted against merciless killers with an unknown target and a race against the clock to stop the next attack.

  • Detective Kate Bowen, the story’s main character, is well defined, utterly human, hopelessly dedicated and driven in her mission, and has the character and complexity to grab your heart and sustain this series.

  • … the book is fast paced and propels you straight into the world of international terrorism and crime detection. Overall I enjoyed the book and was gripped from relatively early on.

  • An interesting mix of characters interact with Kate and she must deal with the pressures of her professional and love life. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it as a good read for the Christmas period or summer vacation.
