A city in darkness. A building in lockdown. A score that can only be settled in blood…
Working off the books for FBI Special Agent Alex Monroe, Florida bounty-hunter Lori Anderson and her partner, JT, head to Chicago. Their mission: to entrap the head of the Cabressa crime family. The bait: a priceless chess set that Cabressa is determined to add to his collection.
An exclusive high-stakes poker game is arranged in the penthouse suite of one of the city’s tallest buildings, with Lori holding the cards in an agreed arrangement to hand over the pieces. But, as night falls and the game plays out, stakes rise and tempers flare.
When a power failure plunges the city into darkness, the building goes into lockdown. But this isn’t an ordinary blackout, and the men around the poker table aren’t all who they say they are. Hostages are taken, old scores resurface and the players start to die.
And that’s just the beginning…
What a day to present my third and final Orenda Books blog tour review this month? I’ve been lucky enough to have a spot on the tours and rave about three incredible Orenda reads this month, what better way to go out in March review style than with the loving of the fourth in the Lori Anderson series? Anyways, rewind, hello there, welcome to my day on the Random Things Tour for Deep Dark Night, as always, all my thanks go to Anne for the opportunity, as well as Orenda Books for sending me out a copy of the book in preparation of the tour. If you all remember, there was a few storms that hit the UK recently, Deep Dark Night was one of the novels that I escaped into and I loved it!
Deep Dark Night was published on the 5th of March in paperback and audible, it’s also available in e-book format, you can purchase a copy here. Or if you’re looking for a new series, why not treat yourself to the whole lot? You wont be disappointed, I pinky swear it!
Steph Broadribb was born in Birmingham and grew up in Buckinghamshire. Most of her working life has been spent between the UK and USA. As her alter ego – Crime Thriller Girl – she indulges her love of all things crime fiction by blogging at www.crimethrillergirl.com
Steph is an alumni of the MA in Creative Writing (Crime Fiction) at City University London, and she trained as a bounty hunter in California. She lives in Buckinghamshire surrounded by horses, cows and chickens.
Deep Dark Night was the exact medicine that I needed for the gloom of Storm Dennis, being plunged into an action packed darkness where your only hope is the trouble magnetising Lori Anderson. I was immediately drawn in to the chaotic life of bounty hunter Lori, oh what has she got herself into this time you ask? Well she’s only thrust into the deep end of the danger pool when she agrees to take part in a high stakes poker game – I was gripped, the adrenaline inducing, action packed storyline left me on a dangle at every chapter, will life ever go smoothly for Anderson?!
Deep Dark Night is a crime thriller mixed with a locked room mystery, it’s deliciously claustrophobic and exhilaratingly gripping, with a taut pace and moreish chapters. Steph has written a fantastic new instalment of a much loved series, one with a flawed female protagonist who is also super kickass with a personality that you can’t help but love, yet face palm over her actions occasionally. A perfect crime based read to escape into, where you’ll find yourself in Chicago with a spice of menace in the air and the possibility of risk. Deep Dark Night is a strap yourself in, put your phone on flight mode and log out of Twitter read – you’re not going to want any distractions pulling you out of Lori’s world. Be prepared for the wild ride where you don’t know who or what you can trust!
If you buy one book today, make it Deep Dark Night, it’s also available in Tesco and Asda so why not add it to your shopping list?! A little treat amongst the panic buying!
