Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A money, big business, drug linked, gangster tale with heart. Something a little different in this area which should appeal equally to both sexes. Itâs a tale that concentrates as much on the conflicts and jealousies between the characters as it does on the shoddy businesses and power struggles. A very competent first novel, highly recommended.

Comparison: Michael Connelly, William Diehl, Scott Turow.
Similar this month: Stuart MacBride, Peter James.

Synopsis

Grip by David Mckeowen

An outstanding debut thriller for an exceptional new talent. James Carroll only meant to do one deal to get to film school. But it went wrong. Now he owes £30,000 to drug-dealer Roger Oates. Just a year of quiet business away from retiring with his beloved family to his dream home in Honolulu, Roger knows this is no time to let anyone get away with anything. So if James canât pay, his parents must. But Francis Carroll has put everything he has into a project that will finally bring him the success he craves. He simply cannot afford to bail out his son. And his ambitious wife Rachel wants a baby – while his dangerously alluring first wife wants him back. Itâs no good asking them. Everyone wants to keep a grip: on their money and their jobs. On their dreams. But somethingâs got to give. Written with terrific verve and a sharp eye for the details of human behaviour, GRIP is a roller-coaster ride of suspense and surprises.
