But when that curiosity leads her to the hotel's private elevator which serves only the ultra-elite penthouse Suite Imperial, she spies much more than plush carpets and gilt chandeliers: a young woman caught in the clutches of a threatening-looking older man.

The effect of her by Gerard Stembridge( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mags Perry has fled a loveless marriage and returned from England to 1970s Ireland, where she picks up what work she can find as a freelance journalist. Beautiful, intelligent and idealistic, her divorce has made her a pariah in traditional Irish society, but the burgeoning Women's Movement offers her an opportunity to join in the fight for a better, fairer republic -- and if possible, find a different kind of love along the way. Francis Strong leaves his provincial, working-class home for university, bringing with him an almost mythical notion of Dublin. It's the 70s, he's a literature student, he has his own bedsit. Freedom beckons -- but does he know what kind of freedom he is looking for? And is it to be found in the capital? Seemingly remote from such trivial human affairs is CJ, the one-time cabinet minister who is now in the political wilderness after getting mixed up in an arms scandal. Yet as he ruthlessly seeks a return to power, his decisions could affect -- for better or for worse -- the lives of everyone in Ireland
According to Luke by Gerard Stembridge( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At thirty, Luke Reid seems to have an enviable life. He is a child of the leafy suburbs, attractive in an understated way, tolerant and erudite, socially assured, professionally successful, romantically settled. In short, a textbook example of middle-class contentment." "But in his thirty-first year, Luke feels a strange new emotion - shame - when his father, Frank, a leading barrister, is implicated in decades of political sleaze. Unlike his mother, older sister and teenage brother, who try to ignore the whole sordid business, and unlike his younger sister, made helpless by the thought that her Daddy could do wrong, Luke decides to tackle the cancer of corruption head-on. By individual action he tries to make good the damage his father has done. The results are unpredictable, shocking and life-altering, not just for himself, but for all those close to him."--Jacket
What she saw : a novel by Gerard Stembridge( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A taut, stylish thriller set over the course of twenty-four hours in Paris--perfect for fans of Chris Pavone's The Expats and Olen Steinhauer's The Tourist. The storied Hotel Chevalier on Paris' ritzy Right Bank hosts celebrities, dignitaries, and--for one night--Lana Gibson, an American woman who's escaped the monotony of her staid married life for a cultural jaunt to the City of Light. As long as she takes her meds, she promises herself, her heightened curiosity and manic elation will stay under control. But when that curiosity leads her to the hotel's private elevator which serves only the ultra-elite penthouse Suite Imperial, she spies much more than plush carpets and gilt chandeliers: a young woman caught in the clutches of a threatening-looking older man. Unable to erase the image of the girl in danger from her mind, Lana alerts the police, plunging herself into a firestorm of intrigue and becoming a target. As she engages in a cat-and-mouse game that plays out across the streets of Paris, it emerges that the older man is a prominent public figure, and the murky situation only offers more questions: Is he being set up? Who stands to gain the most from his downfall? Not knowing who has her best interests at heart, Lana will need to use every ounce of strength and guile as she races to discover the relationship between the truth and what she saw. Set against the glittering city of Paris, What She Saw is a hypnotic, thoroughly compelling thriller that will leave readers guessing until the final pages
