An artist haunted by her mother's unsolved murder. An unstoppable and relentless outlaw. When their paths cross, all clues point to a killer.
"Great Ending. Never saw it coming"--P. Matthews
"I love love love this book"--Pennsylvania
Reno, Nevada. Nine years after her mother’s still unsolved murder, former homeless teen Zoë Cruse has found stability with a husband, child, and a career as a tattoo artist. But when a man comes in and asks for new ink, Zoë can’t help but draw comparisons between one of the images on his back and her mother’s death. Worse, his other ink appears to represent a deadly pattern, one that may indicate he’s killed before.

Determined to unearth the truth despite her husband’s objections, Zoë researches the images and infiltrates the man’s notorious motorcycle club in search of evidence. But with the police, federal agents, and a rival gang all in pursuit of the same outlaw, her quest for closure may end with more than one person in the morgue…including her family.

Can she unravel the mystery and find justice before she ends up six feet under?

The Tattoo Artist is the chilling third book in the Women of Redemption suspense thriller series, featuring women who may not be perfect, but perfectly kick-ass when given a second chance. If you like strong female characters, fast-paced plots, and tension-filled pages, then you’ll love Lori Lacefield’s spine-tingling tale.

Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Women of Redemption books special?

A – I think it really boils down to the characters. When I write, I let the characters tell me who they are, and what I discover is that like any of us, they wrestle with the challenges life throws at them in a varied manner. The emotions they experience are real – anger, betrayal, hurt, grief, guilt – and the choices they make as a result may not be good or right, but they’re human, and people make mistakes. The question facing each in the end is, what will they do to make the wrong right?

Q – You like to throw your strong female protagonists into some impossible situations. Why is that?

A – I’ve always liked books about ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. I believe people often find the best in themselves when faced with the worst. I want readers to put themselves in these women’s shoes, and think… What if I discovered the man I found guilty of murder was innocent and I was the one responsible for securing his death sentence? How far would I go to get justice if I was kidnapped and the perpetrators responsible were never punished? What would I do if a man walked into my tattoo shop and I thought he might be my mother's killer?

Q – These books seem to cross genre boundaries, a bit mystery, suspense, and thriller.

A – I think all authors like to create books that mirror the kind of books they like to read. My top picks are usually serial killer thrillers, psychological thrillers, police procedurals, and any number of thriller and mystery best sellers. I love a fast-paced style that keeps me on the edge of my seat. As a result, I think my books tend to take a part from each genre – a bit “whodunit”, some “don’t open that door”, add a few high stakes and blend them together...

Q - So, why should a reader check out your books?

A - Because you'll love the page-turning action! Thanks for reading!


I couldn't stop reading it.

It had action, suspense and funny tidbits. I would recommend this book.

Phenomenal read! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would! Zoe Cruse is the bravest, most intelligent protagonist! Devastated by the murder of her mother when she was only 15, and damaged irreparably by foster care and life on the streets, Zoe fights to avenge her mother's murder and comes up against pure evil: a serial murderer who slaughtered not only her mother, but 13 other women. Lacefield has written a gripping novel I couldn't put down!

Great ending

Never saw it coming. I stayed up almost all night reading. Wish there was a sequel to look forward to.

Page burning book!!

I love love love this book. I read it in two days and now I need Lori Lacefield to write another. This seriously should be a movie or Netflix series. I was on the edge of my seat. I love books about strong women and this is the best.

Carolyn Inman

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Always enjoy a good MC story and liked these characters also. Paybacks are a bit**!

Karma coming

Kindle Customer inkster

This was a good mystery but quite unbelievable. I have read hundreds of MC books and none would let an outsider come in and tell them what to do. The h of this story just came in and took over telling the MC president how they were going to do the sting. He just gave up brother like he didn't. mean anything and the Fed's not going after the MC because they made a deal with the h was ridiculous. Based on this book i won't be reading this author against .

This book takes you deep into the 1% Motor Cycle clubs. Be prepared for a ride that is barely in control. Try and remember to breath as you read.
