Review published on March 3, 2017.
Deep Down Dead is a non-stop action thriller about a bounty hunter. The novel takes place in the eastern United States and it involves Lori Anderson, who is out on a job to bring in her ex-mentor, JT. She has to bring her nine-year-old daughter along and thus begins a white-knuckle ride involving kidnapping, multiple homicides and a good deal of action. Despite featuring a little too much introspection for my liking, this thriller is truly engaging and exciting with good character development. In some places predictable, it is nonetheless enjoyable and well worth reading – it reads as if the author had a film scenario in place and it’s easy to imagine the story as a film. Recommended.
Paul Allard 4/3
