A lot of you will have heard of Steph Broadribb, also known as crime thriller girl and member of the Slice Girls. Her debut novel is due to be released on Oct 15th by Orenda and today I am thrilled to be able to publish a quote from the book…
“Not a cop. Plenty came through here, most of them off the clock. But this guy’s energy was all wrong for that. He was something else. Kinda mysterious. I liked that.
Anyways, that scent of aged bourbon with a base-note aroma of tobacco worked real well on him. What with the dark-blond hair that fell over his eyes and the two-day-old stubble lingering across his jaw, he looked a dirty kind of perfect: big and dangerous and sexy as hell.”
About the Book
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.
Breathtakingly fast-paced, both hard-boiled and heart-breaking, Deep Down Dead is a simply stunning debut from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.
