Review published on December 22, 2017.
This novel takes place immediately after the events of Deep Down Dead and concerns a bounty hunter, Lori Anderson, out on a job to bring justice to her mentor and ex-lover, JT. She has to find an escaped convict on orders from an FBI agent but, unsurprisingly, not all is as it seems and the novel includes murder, stolen goods and the Mob.
Despite featuring a little too much introspection for my liking, this thriller is truly engaging and exciting with good character development. More of an old-fashioned detective thriller than the last book, it is enjoyable and well worth reading – it reads as if the author had a film scenario in place: it’s easy to imagine as a film. A further volume will follow. Recommended.
Paul Allard 4/4
