Well here it is, finally, this Little Bookworm’s stop on the #blogtour of the year for the utterly amazing, debut novel,
Deep Down Dead, written by blogging royalty, Stephanie Broadribb.
I’m sharing this stop with my guest reviewer, Dave Hardy today, I know he loved the book just as much as I did and so, without further ado, here are his thoughts . . .
This is a cracking little read. A tremendously fast-paced action thriller from the debut author, Steph Broadribb.
To say this is a debut is quite remarkable! Broadribb engages with the reader and succeeds in drawing you into the story almost immediately. The main protagonist, Lori Anderson, is quite unique, but it works extremely well. It’s not everyday we read about a female bounty hunter that’s tough as they come. Lori is a great character and I warmed to her very quickly. She’s hard on the outside, but she’s soft and caring on the inside. Lori has a big challenge ahead and she uses her skills quite wildly throughout the story
The book is a true page-turner. Its full of excitement, tension, energy, romance, and to be honest, the book is loaded with all types of emotions. For me, I found this book fun to read. It’s packed full of action and gets the adrenaline pumping.
The plot is tremendous! It’s delivered with confidence, pace and assurance. If you like Lee Child and Jack Reacher, you’ll love this book, very much in his style.
Deep Down Dead is a fantastic read, and Lori Anderson is a great new character. I can see this making a great film.
Solid 4/5 stars from me and highly recommended!
