Good morning I’m excited to finally be sharing my review of Deep Dirty Truth today. Huge apologies to Anne Cater and Orenda for posting this late we had a rather hectic Sunday at out of hours with a poorly baby and I completely forgot to post.
Single-mother bounty hunter Lori Anderson returns in another nail-biting, high-voltage read. She’s as tough as they come, but when her family is threatened, she takes on a job that could change everything …
Single-mother bounty-hunter Lori Anderson finally has her family back together, but her new-found happiness is shattered when she’s snatched by the Miami Mob – and they want her dead. Rather than a bullet, they offer her a job: find the Mob’s ‘numbers man’ who’s in protective custody after being forced to turn federal witness against them. If Lori succeeds, they’ll wipe the slate clean and the price on her head – and those of her family – will be removed. If she fails, they die.
With North due in court in 48 hours, Lori sets off across Florida, racing against the clock to find him and save her family. Only in this race the prize is more deadly – and the secret she shares with JT more dangerous – than she ever could have imagined.
In this race only the winner gets out alive…
Deep Dirty Truth is available now in ebook and paperback. You can purchase a copy of both using the link below.
This is another fantastic addition to the Lori Anderson series that keeps getting better and better!
The characters in this book are brilliantly portrayed and I found myself warming to them instantly. I’m a big fan of Lori from the previous book, being very impressed with her strength, determination and ability to fight off anyone. This book was no exception as Lori is once again challenged to find someone and has to use all her skills to get the job done We get to know more about her daughter in this book and she is such a mini version of her mother! She’s a clever and brave little girl, though a bit more vulnerable then her mother due to her age. I hope that she appears in future books as I enjoyed reading about her.
The story is told from the point of view of both Lori And her family which helps to add to the tension as you see how each side is dealing with things. The chapters are quite short which helps add to the fast pace of the novel and leaves the reader desperate to read more. I found I didn’t favour either timeline as each were hugely exciting and enjoyable. When I was reading one I was wanting to get back to the other to find out what would happen next which meant I absolutely flew through the pages!
This book is incredibly fast paced and grips you straight from the start. There are lots of twists and reveals that keeps you on your toes as they take you completely by surprise. The author cleverly uses the setting of the book to add further tension and atmosphere as the wide, deserted spaces gives the reader the impression that anything could happen. Add in some amazing car chases and lots of intense action and this is truly a fantastic, unforgettable book that I will be recommending to everyone.
This is the third book in the series and whilst it might be better to read the books in order as you’d have more understanding of the characters, it could also be read as a standalone as anything you need to know is explained. I’m very excited to read more and hope that book four comes very soon.
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Orenda books for my copy of this book. If you like exciting, addictive crime novels then you’ll love this book!
