Crime thrillers

The Bonus Boys Jan Needle

When go-getting Scottish journalist Rosanna Nixon sets up an interview with Thea Astley she sees it as a smooth and easy route to getting her chaotic life back on track. But career criminals are planning a raid on her house and they get there first.

Jan Needle’s great skill is making this crime thriller such a good all round read. There are criminal investigations, parliamentary investigations, reporters and newspapers trying their best to get ‘the scoop’ and the families suffering the fall-out from the criminal activity. This is a creepy crime novel, brutal, yet eloquent, in its delivery. I loved Rosanna, her doubts about her work and her on/off relationship with Andrew, felt for the battered wives, and was contemptuous of the police. The pace of the narrative picked up as the story progressed to its explosive end. A brilliant read!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Click the cover to go to the Amazon book page.
