Couldn't put it down! This is by far the best crime fiction book I've read in a long time. Craved more. The insight into the world of working in news was something I've never come across before. It was exciting & incredibly well written. Wow! My only two questions are; when is the next one out & when will there be a tv series?
Brilliant first book, I hope there will be many more to come.....

It might be a cliche but this was unputdownable. Really exciting and keeps you guessing until the last page. A great insight into the world of the reporter and what it's like to be in the grip of a big story. Cracking!

Saturday Night Jack is a gripping story which I couldn't put down. It provides a fascinating and authentic insight into the world of the press and the police as they deal with a spate of serial killings. It is both brutal and touching.

A cracking story. I have never been to Newcastle but the scenes were so descriptive that I almost feel like I have. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a great crime novel.

An un-put-downable read! The tight, clever plot kept me on the hook from the first page to the last. Lots of good, pacy dialogue plus a thought-provoking portrayal of the strange symbiotic relationship between the media and the police. I look forward to crime reporter Mick Rogers' next challenge - and to Saturday Night Jack on TV!

A terrific story, it grips the reader from the beginning and makes compulsive reading until the thrilling ending. I loved the story, the easy style, the vivid sense of place (in Newcastle), the depiction of the journalist and the police officer and of their differing motivations, the gentle humour and the skilful characterisation. I'm choosing it as my next book to discuss at our Book Club as I am confident it will appeal to all those who don't usually read crime fiction as well as those who do. Looking forward to the next one.

Want a rip roaring thriller with a Geordie accent?
Love the press, the police, the baddies and how the can't exist without each other?
Then Saturday Night Jack's for you!
It's the Wire meets Byker Grove.

More seriously, it's a great read and if you'd like an insight into the knitty gritty of local press and the police in an atmospheric city like Newcastle you'll enjoy this. Some great characters who were well drawn and real

Enjoy Saturday Night Jack, I did

An interesting novel told from an usual story-telling perspective with gives you an insight to the world of journos. I enjoyed the nature of the plot and development of the lead characters both of which are suitably dark, gritty and leave you with a feeling of discomfort, disapproval and dislike all in equal measure. The pace and tension seemed to increase the further you read through the book and I was pleased at books conclusion. Would be a good pool side read for a summer holiday.

Saturday Night Jack is a twisting tale of two pursuits; A crime reporter chasing a story on his patch, and the police hunting a serial killer. Dronfield gives a fascinating insight into the relationship between the press and police. This is a must read for any journalist, especially those who work or have worked in regional news.

A brilliant read. This is an absolute page turner and certainly left me wanting more. Great characters that you get to know quickly and care about, and a setting that isn't London for a change!

When's the sequel coming out Mr Dronfield?

And when is the Facebook page for Sharpe's jacket starting?
