Review: Deep Dirty Truth by Steph Broadribb @crimethrillgirl @OrendaBooks #DeepDirtyTruth #TeamLori


Release date: January 5th, 2019

Publisher: Orenda

Genre: Thriller


A price on her head. A secret worth dying for. Just 48 hours to expose the truth…

Single-mother bounty hunter Lori Anderson has finally got her family back together, but her new-found happiness is shattered when she’s snatched by the Miami Mob – and they want her dead. Rather than a bullet, they offer her a job: find the Mob’s ‘numbers man’ – Carlton North – who’s in protective custody after being forced to turn federal witness against them. If Lori succeeds, they’ll wipe the slate clean and the price on her head – and those of her family – will be removed. If she fails, they die.
With North due in court in forty-eight hours, Lori sets off across Florida, racing against the clock to find him and save her family. Only in this race the prize is more deadly – and the secret she shares with JT more dangerous – than she ever could have imagined. In this race only the winner gets out alive…
Brimming with tension, high-stakes jeopardy and high-voltage action, and a deep, emotional core, Deep Dirty Truth is an unmissable thriller by one of the freshest and most exciting voices in crime fiction.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Deep Dirty Truth today!


I think my obsession with Lori Anderson is pretty well known by now, but in case you missed me raving about the first two books in this superb series, here’s my thoughts on Deep Down Dead and Deep Blue Trouble. I also need to remind you that reading this series in order is imperative AND it’s one of my favorite series of all time, total must reads.

As a female, I love nothing more than reading about a total badass character that’s multidimensional and so wholly developed and Lori Anderson is the epitome of a strong, sassy, sharp woman. Her mama bear instincts are so relatable to me, although I’m not near as tough as she is, but I can really understand her innate desire to protect her daughter no matter what. Besides Lori and her daughter the rest of the cast is just as deeply drawn, although JT may seem like a closed book, with each book in the series I feel like more layers to his personality are being peeled back. Red is also back, much to my delight and there’s a new addition with North and I’m super curious to see how he may or may not appear in the future.

This book was just as whip smart and lightning fast as the first two, there’s an intensity to Broadribb’s writing that makes you hold your breath for the entirety of the story. The action starts on page one and never stops, period, so when you start this one, settle in and get ready for one hell of a ride. Another must read for thriller fans, and again, I’ve gotta add that I NEED a Lori Anderson movie!

Deep Dirty Truth in three words: Electrifying, Fierce and Compelling.

Overall rating: 5/5

Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
