Jenny Mortimer

I like to read stories about the lives of career women like me, but such books are rare, so I started writing the stories myself, drawing upon the truth-stranger-than-fiction from my life as an ICT executive in New Zealand, Australia, America and England.



Asian-American Lin Mere follows her father's trail to New Zealand to try to establish a relationship with her father's estranged family, and maybe rekindle a romance, but she gets distracted by the offer of a job as chief executive.

When danger enters Lin's life from an unexpected source, she has to face an ordeal even more challenging than the battles in the boardroom. 

Confronting a trilemma - a choice between three bad options - Lin must make her move.

What people are saying

'An utterly engaging tale, with a pitch-perfect plot, jam packed with surprises. This book will bring Jennifer Mortimer front and center onto the thriller stage.'
- Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The King's Deception.

'It starts off as a conventional piece of modern literature about the corporate world. It interweaves elements of romance and the uncertainties of family relationships. And, in retrospect, it’s a thriller. Notice the key word, “retrospect”. Such is the strength or weakness of first-person narration. Since our protagonist is oblivious to the danger, so are the readers. The result is a clever piece of writing.'
- David Marshall, 'Thinking about Books'.
