Single-mother Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson’s got an ocean of trouble on her hands. Her daughter Dakota is safe, but her 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. Following Fletcher from Florida to California, Lori teams up with local bounty hunter Dez McGregor and his team. But Dez works very differently to Lori, and the tension between them threatens to put the whole job in danger. With Monroe pressuring Lori for results, the clock ticking on JT’s life, and nothing about the Fletcher case adding up, Lori’s hitting walls at every turn. But this is one job she’s got to get right, or she’ll lose everything… Breathlessly paced, and bursting with high-voltage action and edge-of-your-seat jeopardy, Deep Blue Trouble is the unmissable next instalment featuring one of the most memorable and fearless female characters in crime fiction.
Deep Blue Trouble is the second book in the Lori Anderson series. I would personally recommend reading Deep Down Dead, the first book in the series, before reading this one.
I loved Deep Down Dead as it was a great read as I loved the concept of a female bounty hunter. Having enjoyed it so much I couldn’t wait to catch up with Lori again and see where she would take us next. I certainly wasn’t disappointed!
You know whatever case Lori finds herself working on is going to be dangerous. My heart was in my mouth at times wondering if Lori was going to make it out alive or not. You have to love her determination though. Being a mom she takes a lot bigger risks than most in the interests of her daughter. At the end of the day that’s what any decent parent would do isn’t it? Desperate times call for desperate measures!
Deep Blue Trouble is an absolute page turner of a read that sent my heart racing. This is one crime thriller series that I literally cannot get enough of. You really care about the characters and constantly want them to come out on top. Will definitely be counting down the days until the next book is out.
My thanks to Anne cater and Orenda Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
