about

Lori Anderson is as tough as they come, managing to keep her career as a fearless Florida bounty hunter separate from her role as single mother to nine-year-old Dakota, who suffers from leukemia. But when the hospital bills start to rack up, she has no choice but to take her daughter along on a job that will make her a fast buck. And that’s when things start to go wrong. The fugitive she’s assigned to haul back to court is none other than JT, Lori’s former mentor—the man who taught her everything she knows . . . the man who also knows the secrets of her murky past. Not only is JT fighting a child exploitation racket operating out of one of Florida’s biggest theme parks, Winter Wonderland, a place where ‘bad things never happen’, but he’s also mixed up with the powerful Miami Mob. With two fearsome foes on their tails, just three days to get JT back to Florida, and her daughter to protect, Lori has her work cut out for her. When they’re ambushed at a gas station, the stakes go from high to stratospheric, and things become personal. Breathtakingly fast-paced, both hard-boiled and heart-breaking, Deep Down Dead is a simply stunning debut from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yee ha for a great US bounty hunter thriller Brilliant. Kick ass. Deftly written, superbly evoked setting and a ‘whip’ roaring success of a plot. Where do you start reviewing a book like this? It’s set in the world of the bounty hunter in the USA – across several locations with shady characters stuck in the middle of nowhere as just as prickly as the cacti there. This book plays with the hunter and the hunted, the prey and the prayed upon and what a bunkin’ broncho kind of ride! The character of Lori has to be hands down one of the most unique and exciting I’ve read about in a long while. I wondered at first if this was going to be my kind of novel -I didn’t feel in the mood for a desert bounty hunter – wasn’t even sure what one was. But how wrong was I? It’s my new favourite kind of gal in a novel. New favourite kind of setting and the action roars off the page!! The locations in the novel are some of the most vivid and raw I’ve read in a while and the storyline just takes you on one heck of a journey. I was breathless in more than one situation. Talk about being swept along by the action, I don’t think I was able to physically put the book down I was that hooked. Such a unique premise and a unique way of taking you on a very fast paced and tightly plotted journey. I take my (Stetson) hat off to CTG! This is one heck of a read and I am so in awe of her history as a Bounty Hunter herself. An amazing backstory to an even more amazing thrilling novel. Unique and very very entertaining. More please!!
