A web of lies. A killer on the run. An impossible choice...



Single-mother Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson's got an ocean of trouble on her hands. Her daughter Dakota is safe, but the little girl's cancer is threatening a comeback, and Lori needs JT - Dakota's daddy and the man who taught Lori everything - alive and kicking. Problem is, he's behind bars, and heading for death row.



Desperate to save him, Lori does a deal, taking on off-the-books job from shady FBI agent Alex Monroe. Bring back on-the-run felon, Gibson 'The Fish' Fletcher, and JT walks free.This is one job she's got to get right, or she'll lose everything...

So, we’re back with Lori and now she is faced with the reality of the love of her life in jail awaiting trial for murders he didn’t commit and at risk of facing the electric chair. Despite the ordeal she and her daughter, Dakota, have just faced in book one, Lori now has to leave Dakota behind and travel to San Diego on a mission for a dodgy FBI agent who has promised to arrange for JT to be exonerated if she brings in an escaped felon. This novel adds a new dimension to the narrative by having us follow two timelines, one led by Lori and her attempts to track down the criminal in California, and the other charting the trials and hardships JT is suffering in jail. We also meet a new central character, a PI named Red who lives on a houseboat and has helped Lori in the past. I have to say, Red quickly became one of my favourite characters and I fell a tiny bit in love with him. If he were to be cast in a movie, he would be played by Sam Elliot, and I refuse to entertain any other suggestions.So, again, we have Lori dashing around in California, trying to track down the missing ‘bad guy,’ having to work as part of a team of other bounty hunters she doesn’t know that goes against her instincts. She is trying to work out who she can trust, who is on the make and whether the facts she has been given are the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Of course, they aren’t, the lines between right and wrong, justice and injustice bleed in to one another. the right people don’t always end up winning and Lori is muddling through the best she can, relying on her own moral code and what is best for her daughter and her partner. You can’t help but get taken along as she battles the outside enemies, and the demons within, whilst only relying on her own skills, smarts and the three people in the world she knows she can trust. The books are fast-paced and quite bloody, with lots of devious twists and turns of fate, and the author is really excellent at ramping up the peril. This book is mad, extreme entertainment, the equivalent of an action-movie in novel form and I raced to the end to find out if everyone I cared about made it out alive and free. Fantastic, adrenaline-fuelled excitement, perfect for getting your heart pumping while you sit on the couch.

"Deep Blue Trouble" Is the second in the Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson series written by author Steph Broadribb and picks up exactly where her blistering debut "Deep Down Dead" left off. Although it is an immediate follow on, it can be read as a standalone as there's plenty of information to bring you up to speed or even just to refresh your memory, though I do highly recommend you read the first purely for the high octane rush it delivers. I was anticipating another fast paced, action thriller and I wasn't disappointed, having totally fallen in love with Lori's character and her former mentor JT (though he features less in this book) they combine to form the perfect romantic element in a professionally written thriller that keeps you turning the pages until the nail biting end. We resume the story with JT in prison and heading for death row. Desperate to save him, Lori agrees to do a deal with shady FBI agent Alex Monroe to bring back Gibson 'The Fish' Fletcher who is currently on the run. In return JT goes free. She has to find Fletcher or she risks losing everything...... The author Steph Broadribb is a fabulous writer and as I've said before she could easily be compared to any of the big name American thriller writers. The fact that she actually trained as a bounty hunter in California just makes her stories all the more authentic and I for one am a huge fan of her writing and look forward now to reading "Deep Dirty Truth" the next in the series due to be published very soon. Brilliantly entertaining, wholesome, pacy and genuinely authentic, combined with a kick-ass, no nonsense female bounty hunter and a race against time, you're guaranteed a thrilling ride that's full of drama and high tension! 4.5 stars
