The third book will be much longer [Jenny tells me]
This starts where the last book finished.
We see a hardened determined young female that is out for revenge.
I wondered why Jenny Thomson had named it Throwaways, I now have discovered that this is the name that Glasgow give to prostitutes/sex workers who have gone missing. I didn't know that before!
Although I enjoyed this book, it was much slower in pace than book one.
I thought she was out for revenge for herself, but, she out for justice and revenge for ALL women. So it reads a bit like a crusade in some way.
I like how this author has based it around a strong female lead. Although she could have become a victim [which she was] she could have just laid down and taken it, instead she stood up and fought. RIGHTS FOR WOMEN kept playing in my mind on this one.
The thought of her dressing up as a prostitute brought questions to my mind, my first obvious one was, what about when a car pulls up! But the author had already anticipated this and I got my reply quite quickly.
My personal rating for this one is 3.5 simply because it all came together too fast, things were solved too soon. And that I didn't feel that 'pumping' in myself as I was reading like book 1.
I still want to read book 3 though as I feel I have a LOT more to find out.
Thank you to the author for my copy
Huddled in a doorway, in a blonde wig and my best Pretty Woman outfit, I’m already soaked to the skin. Any minute now, a car will pull up and the occupant will ask me how much I charge for sex. As downward spirals go, this is bad. But I’m not here because I’m reduced to turning tricks for a living. I’m here to catch a killer… Throwaways – that’s the word they’re using for the Glasgow sex workers who’ve gone missing. But two people do care and Nancy Kerr and Tommy McIntyre won’t stop until they discover the truth; even if it gets them killed.
So the second “Die Hard for Girls” novella and whilst I enjoyed the first one it was quite frenetic in its action which meant that the characters were perhaps not fleshed out enough. This one however was more considered, gave the characters a chance to come into their own and was paced pretty perfectly between action and emotion.
The first “chapter” was very much a book about vengeance – this one is very much about justice. Previously Nancy wanted to hurt those that had hurt her, now she and Tommy want to look out for others – those who perhaps will not find help elsewhere. When sex workers in Glasgow go missing not much is done, they are the “throwaways” the ones that don’t matter, but they matter to Nancy.
The graphic nature of the violence seen in “Hell to Pay” was often difficult to read – in this instalment, whilst it is still very dark, it is much more studied and relevant throughout, adding to the disturbing nature of the events going on and keeping the reader right in the story. The flow is great and I read this in one sitting, completely immersed for the entire time.Read more ›
