I have a few new ideas for my novel: Idea One Los Angeles 1952 Seven bodies are found in an abandoned warehouse with thousands of bullet holes in the walls. Five of the victims have criminal records and gang connections, but two are only teenagers and seem innocent. Two detectives are put in charge of the investigation, and their first port of call is to the parents of the teenage victims. A search of the victims bedrooms reveal backpacks filled with drugs; drug runners. And an investigation into the five other victims reveals one connection - the infamous Los Angeles Crime Family. When a street dealer agrees to turn informant in order to avoid prison, the detectives jump on the oppurtunity, but it isn't long before the family find out about the informant, and after a drive-shooting as the informant is escorted into the police station, in an attempt to silence the key that could open the door door that has never before been unlocked, the detectives are forced to hold the informant in Hill's apartment, but before long, he has been discovered, and it is only a matter of time before he is killed... Idea Two Belarus 1940 Two Jewish brothers who have dreams of success are forced to abandon their home and flee into the forest after their village is massacred, including their parents. They start a partisan movement that increases rapidly in numbers, and they attack Nazi convoys and steal food, in an attempt to survive hardhsips such as winter. Relationships rise and fall, and loyalty, friendship and above all, family, will be tested as the two brothers search for the Nazi officers whom they witnessed execute their parents, whom they have vowed they will kill, one way or another... Idea Three Two Jewish brothers are forced to leave their home in France, to leave their immobile parents, to escape the persecution of the Nazis. They set out cross country towards Switzerland, where they hope they will find safety. Along their journey, they encounter numerous obstacles, including Nazi patrols, roadblocks and vicious wild animals, harsh winters and a constant lack of food. They also make new allies, including a a sympathizer who hides them but pays the price when the Nazi's find out, and a group of loyal French Resistance fighters who are all killed in combat. The journey will test the brothers loyalty to one another, and the final test will come when they are so near to their goal... Your views will be much appreciated, and it would be a great help if you could tell me why you prefer one of the ideas.
