***Competition Now Closed****
So TOMORROW you can FINALLY get your hands on Steph Broadribb’s (AKA Crime Thriller Girl) Deep Down Dead (in e-book) – a book that as a crime and thriller fan you will NOT want to miss. And yes I know I should possibly have been all professional and used a beautifully posed author shot but I love this girl and this picture of us together at Crimefest this year is MUCH better.
I have a little giveaway/competiton thingy for you in a minute read on because you don’t want to miss out – but first here is what we know about Deep Down Dead (translation: here is the blurb)
Lori Anderson is as tough as they come, managing to keep her career as a fearless Florida bounty hunter separate from her role as single mother to nine-year-old Dakota, who suffers from leukaemia. But when the hospital bills start to rack up, she has no choice but to take her daughter along on a job that will make her a fast buck. And that’s when things start to go wrong. The fugitive she’s assigned to haul back to court is none other than JT, Lori’s former mentor – the man who taught her everything she knows … the man who also knows the secrets of her murky past.
Not only is JT fighting a child exploitation racket operating out of one of Florida’s biggest theme parks, Winter Wonderland, a place where ‘bad things never happen’, but he’s also mixed up with the powerful Miami Mob. With two fearsome foes on their tails, just three days to get JT back to Florida, and her daughter to protect, Lori has her work cut out for her. When they’re ambushed at a gas station, the stakes go from high to stratospheric, and things become personal.
Do you want this book? YES. What did I think about it? Not telling you. I’ll be doing a feature review soon in the lead up to the paperback release and probably I shall have a little chat to Steph all about it too. And she thought she had escaped my 20 Questions…
I WILL say that it is by FAR the best thriller I’ve read this year (which is a relief because seriously if I hated it I woul have to go and live in Antarctica) and it is so much more than just a thriller.
These guys had a few words to say….
‘Deep Down Dead grabs you like a whirlwind – once you’re in, there’s no getting away till it’s through with you. Pacey, emotive and captivating, this is kick-ass thriller writing of the highest order’ Rod Reynolds
‘A relentless page-turner with twists and turns that left me breathless’ J.S. Law
‘Deep Down Dead oozes authenticity. This is an engaging, original thriller with the type of characters you wish you knew in real life. Fresh, compelling and beautifully written, with a real cinematic quality. Read it. Now’ S.J.I. Holliday
