FROM THE MIND OF BESTSELLING AUTHOR STEPHEN SAYERS COMES A NEW BREED OF CRIME THRILLER.
Tommy Myers is someone who has quite a bright future ahead of him, that is until a certain event sends his life spiralling into a totally different direction.
The story actually starts off with quite a bang in present day, then we are taken back to events building back up to the current day. This way we get a better feel for the characters and what they are dealing with. I couldn’t wait to find out what had happened and how everything was going to pan out.
The two people that really stand out in this story is Tommy and his step sister Karen. These two are brilliant characters, they really get under the readers skin and I for one really cared about what was happening to them both. Karen comes into Tommy’s life when they are both kids. As they get older, even though there is that sense of looking out for one another, there is something definitely stronger going on.
My heart was literally in my mouth whilst reading this. Having the local mobster set his sights on Tommy, I just knew that nothing good could come of it. There are certainly some unsavoury characters throughout this novel, some who made my skin crawl.
There is a certain incident which I have to say was quite hard to read but was very paramount to the whole story and it was written very tactfully. It is certainly a very dark and gritty read that has you in the thick of it all.
Set in the dark and disturbing gangster underworld of Newcastle, this is a gripping and intense read about an unbreakable bond and fighting for survival. By Any Means Necessary holds no punches and sent me hurtling on a roller coster ride of emotions. As the Geordie saying goes, this is a ‘belter’ of a novel.
My rating 4.5/5 stars.
