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.

I’m a proud member of #TeamLori and my love for this series has grown as each of the three books has come out.

Lori hasn’t had a great life until now. Married to an abusive man who turned out also to be a mobster, she incurred the wrath of the Miami mafia boss after her husband was shot dead.

She is only now beginning to get her life back on track, bring her daughter Dakota together with her new man, J.T. and living a good life as a bounty hunter in Florida.

But this is Lori and that peace is never going to last.

To keep Dakota and J.T. safe she is forced to a deal with the mafia. One of their trusted henchmen, their accountant North, has turned informer and is now in FBI protective custody awaiting the trial of the aforementioned Mafioso. The mafia, unsurprisingly, want North back and if Lori doesn’t deliver him on deadline, her small family will never be safe again.

To track North down and spring him from custody won’t be easy, and she knows she’ll have to do it alone, because she needs J.T. to keep Dakota safe while she’s gone.

To make matters worse she only has 48 hours. And what a whirlwind 48 hours that is! Lori moves with the speed of lightning, encountering different dangers and some pretty squirm making characters at every turn. There’s danger and double dealing; in the fetid atmosphere of the Everglades there is more than one kind of dangerous predator at loose and Lori has trouble knowing who to trust.

But then, hasn’t that always been Lori’s problem? Not without cause, she does not trust easily, and this leads her to manage everything she comes up against alone.

Exciting, addictive, full of twists, this is Lori fighting for her life again. A super-fast pace, smart mouthed prose to die for and a plot that will keep your heart in your mouth as you watch Lori navigate the minefields between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Verdict: Deep Dirty Truth is the best Lori book yet and I love her more every book.
