What Reviewers are saying
- 'A really gritty book with action from beginning to end.'
- 'A fabulous debut and I think it would make a great movie. I cannot wait for the sequel'
- 'Dalton is a bit like what Lee Child's Jack Reacher might be like if he was from a working class British background'
- 'A gritty thriller from Andrew Scorah. This is the author's debut novel and he shows a lot of promise.'
- 'Looking for an action thriller akin to a runaway train full of flying bullets, bulging biceps and mayhem piled upon mayhem? You'll find it in this debut novella by British author Andrew Scorah, a name that could well become synonymous with the best the thrill genre has to offer.'
a read - a bit like Martina Cole but faster moving, which I preferred.
Plus Jimmy is actually a sympathetic character. Geezers, guns and
