I loved the very “Australian” flavour of this crime novel. The language, scenes and tones were familiar to me and all at once, managed to be both inviting and suffocating. The characters were multi-dimensional, interesting and there were plenty to both love and hate.
Over the years, I’ve had numerous reviews mention that the main protagonist in my Avon Calling series, Betty Jones, reminds them of a female ‘Jack Reacher’ (from author Lee Child’s series of crime action novels featuring this character as protagonist). I thought it was high time I read one of his Jack Reacher novels to see what they were getting at!
If you haven’t had a chance to vote for Avon Calling, please help me get Betty’s name in lights for all the world to see!
