#BlogTour Deep Dirty Truth by Steph Broadribb


Today it's my turn on the BlogTour for Deep Dirty Truth by Steph Broadribb. It's the third part in the Lori Anderson series. She is a bounty hunters answer to Tomb Raider, but with more attitude and panache. The kind of character who is just begging to be put on the screen, but is equally entertaining on the pages of a book.

About the book
A price on her head, and just 48 hours to expose the truth, and save her family…
Single-mother bounty hunter Lori Anderson has finally got her family back together, but her new found happiness is shattered when she’s snatched by the Miami Mob, who they want her dead. But rather than a bullet, they offer her a job: find the Mob’s ‘numbers man’– Carlton North – 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 only 48 hours before North is due to appear in court, Lori sets across Florida, racing against the clock to find him, and save her family…

Brimming with tension, high-stakes jeopardy and high-voltage action, and a deep, emotional core, Deep Dirty Truth is an unmissable thriller by one of the freshest and most exciting voices in crime fiction.

Review
This is the third book in the Lori Anderson series and the rambunctious, impetuous, tough as old boots bounty hunter shows no sign of slowing down in this thrilling adventure. The books in this series set off at an amazing pace and the author keeps that pace going throughout, which means the reader is in for one heck of a ride and a read.

What is remarkable about this author is the consistency of the read. Sometimes when a debut novel comes out of the running blocks at a great speed the next read can have trouble living up to the first success. Broadribb doesn't seem to have that problem, which means you know what you're getting when you buy the product.

Unfortunately Lori still can't seem to extract herself from the ties of her past. The mob still comes calling at regular intervals to get their revenge. It seems that killing a monster is a big deal when it is their monster. Now they have finally figured out Lori was to blame for disposing of said monster they want her to repay the debt of his death. They want a favour, the kind that will make Lori the same as the mobsters she has been running from for years, a favour that could cost her family their lives.

Lori is presented with a difficult decision, does she throw all her morals out of the window to save the man she loves and her young daughter? Or does she bite the bullet and show them what she is made of? Knowing Lori means knowing exactly how she thinks, which also means knowing how stubborn and persistent she can be when it comes to being in a tight spot.

Broadribb has proven that she is an exciting new voice in the crime genre and here to stay. She delivers an exciting and riveting read. The Lori Anderson series is an exciting combination of thriller, adventure, crime and the cherry on top is the sassy main character. She is a bounty hunters answer to Tomb Raider, but with more attitude and panache. The kind of character who is just begging to be put on the screen, but is equally entertaining in the pages of a book.
