"Bounty hunter Lori Anderson returns in the second instalment of this high-octane US trilogy. Gutsy Lori is tasked with bringing in an on-the-run felon, her only chance to save her daughter's father from jail. Fresh, fast and zinging with energy." -- The Sunday Mirror
"The first book in this series, Deep Down Dead, was one of my favourite reads of last year so I was excited to dive into this latest instalment - and I wasn't disappointed. Lori Anderson is back as the tough-as-nails, single-mother bounty hunter who will do anything to protect her sick daughter, Dakota. This time, she must strike a deal with a shady FBI agent in order to free Dakota's father from death row but the job he wants Lori to take on comes with a whole lot of trouble. Deep Blue Trouble has a bit of everything - suspense, action, romance, danger and a plot that will keep you reading into the wee small hours. I loved it." -- Daily Record
"Broadribb continues to take our breath away, not just with Lori's electrifying feats of daring but a plot featuring more twists and turns than a Hollywood disaster movie … while the action is relentless, the danger hair-raising and the tension palpable, Deep Blue Trouble still delivers a powerful emotional punch as the romance between Lori and JT simmers tantalisingly, and Dakota's illness hangs over Lori like a dark shadow. The constant juggling of work and motherhood, aggression and affection, danger and domesticity make Lori a seductive star, excitingly extraordinary and yet still identifiably ordinary. The result is entertainment all the way… don't miss it! " --Lancashire Evening Post
"A generally pacey, page-turner of a novel with Lori racing against the clock to get JT out of jail and keep her daughter safe. Hardly anyone is who they seem to be. Lots of twists and turns... Like Deep Down Dead, Deep Blue Trouble will really grab your attention as the plot races forward with plenty of bumps, thumps and gritty action." --Crime Fiction Lover
'At the outset of British author Broadribb's rough and tumble sequel to Deep Down Dead, Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson makes an off-the-books deal with FBI special agent Alex Monroe. She agrees to track down Gibson the Fish Fletcher, a thief turned murderer who's escaped from police custody, in exchange for Monroe ensuring the freedom of her former lover, JT Tate, who's in prison awaiting trial for multiple killings that he confessed to but didn't commit. Tate, who's under threat from imprisoned members of the Miami Mob, has only recently learned that he's the father of Anderson's nine-year-old daughter, Dakota, whose safety is also in play. The deck is stacked against Anderson, starting with Monroe's insistence that she work with bounty hunter Dez McGregor, who's dismissive of her talents. As Anderson follows Fletcher's trail to California, she faces insults, attacks, and deceptions from a host of people connected to the fugitive, including his brother and his lover, with grit and determination. Readers will cheer her every step of the way.' --Publishers' Weekly

After the events of the previous novel, Lori’s trainer, and father of her nine-year-old daughter Dakota, JT, is facing a prison sentence and possibly the death penalty. Lori can’t let that happen, she has her daughter’s future to think about and if at any time in her life her cancer returns, her father will be the best option there is for a successful bone marrow transplant. Lori can’t afford to lose him. She signs a deal with her boss, that if she brings in an escaped fugitive, then the charges that JT is facing will disappear. The man she is sent out to find is Gibson ‘The Fish’ Fletcher. But why is Monroe interested in him, what makes him any different to any other fugitive out there? What dealings has Monroe had ‘The Fish’ in the past?
In this book, Lori teams up with Dez McGregor and his team in California. Used to working independently there are undoubtedly tensions between her and Dez who seems to take an immediate dislike to her and Lori, likewise, takes a dislike to him. But Lori has no choice but to work with him if she wants JT released from prison, everything for Lori hangs in the balance and if she doesn’t succeed, she faces an uncertain future. Lori is also aware that she is being followed and is on edge throughout the book and she soon begins to receive threatening messages.
The Lori Anderson books are shaping up to be a fine, eagerly anticipated new crime series. Steph Broadribb has a real talent for creating highly engaging and believable characters. I’m excited to see where Steph will take us next with Lori and JT.
Fabulously, that’s how. Deep Blue Trouble is another high-octane ride-along with mom turned bounty hunter, Lori Anderson. The blurb above gives you a decent outline of the story, but what it can’t convey is the tension Steph manages to get into the story. With the mob looking for both Lori and Dakota, and JT in danger himself, there’s a lot at stake here. And it isn’t always clear exactly who the good guys the bad guys are.
Lori wants to do the right thing by everyone, but doesn’t always make the wisest choices in trying to do that. And she’s not beyond making a few extra enemies when she doesn’t need to. But you can’t be a kick-ass heroine without kicking some ass. Even if it means you’re gonna get some bumps and bruises on the way.
If you like riding the roller-coaster, this is another fast ride!
