WEDNESDAY WINNER #1: Ruthless by Charlie Gallagher @joffebooks @gloriouscharlie #joffewednesdaywinner #TeamJoffeBooks #ruthless

Today I am kicking off my WEDNESDAY WINNER blog.  Each Wednesday a random Joffe book will be chosen and featured here.  Today in the spotlight we have RUTHLESS by Charlie Gallagher.  This is a stand alone thriller and I thought it was brilliant.  It is written from the point of view of a teenager who is working her way through the bad luck fate has thrown her way.  An excellent read.



Available from: Amazon UK    Amazon US    Amazon Australia    Amazon Canada

What would you do to survive in a world of ruthless criminals and drug dealers? Decide for yourself in this gripping and gritty thriller. Written by a best-selling serving police detective.

This is Rhiannon’s story. She thinks she’s a good person but to stay alive in a very violent world she will be tested to the limit.

Will Dryden wakes to discover his girlfriend Janey is dead from an overdose. Without his friend and partner in crime, he has nothing left to lose.

Meanwhile, police are called to the scene of a car accident – date night gone tragically wrong for Melissa Cooper – and left to break the news to Mel’s teenage niece, Rhiannon. For Rhiannon, it’s a devastating loss. Now she’s on her own.

Will and Rhiannon’s paths cross. Rhiannon gets sucked into the world of the drug dealers and falls into the sights of Aaron – the gang leader. He has a point to prove and is unhappy that he isn’t getting the respect he wants. Aaron takes brutal revenge when the police start to close in on him.

Can Rhiannon stay alive and save herself and Will from the murderous Aaron? Who is ruthless enough to survive?

This pulsating crime thriller takes you on an adrenaline-packed ride with a shocking end.


What the readers think:

Ginger Book Geek

To say that ‘Ruthless’ is brilliant has to be an understatement of the year.  I can’t really put into words how much I enjoyed it and brilliant doesn’t seem enough somehow.  I picked up ‘Ruthless’ at a rather stressful time for me and I was in need of a distraction.  Well once I picked up ‘Ruthless’ I was addicted from the first word on the first page and I just couldn’t put the book down again as I was desperate to find out if Will and Rhiannon escaped.  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

This is a well-written crime thriller authored by a best-selling serving police detective. Although not one of my favorites by Mr. Gallagher, the premise is a good one. The characters are finely drawn, if not totally credible. It’s fast-paced loaded with bad guys, bad deeds, bad attitudes.  Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

Then the reader comes to the end of the book and I can guarantee that not only is the ending a surprise, it fair knocks the socks off the reader!
This is going straight onto my list of the top ten books I have read – ever.  Read more here

Black Books Blog

The story starts fast but the action in the latter part of the book ramps it up even more, so much so that you realise you have read the whole book in one sitting and it is the early hours of the morning.  Read more here

J. V. Baptie

This novel is a standalone and a breath of fresh air.  It’s pacey and action packed. The opening chapter pulls the reader straight in and I found myself wanting to know more about Janey and who supplied her with the heroin.   Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog

I found that this book was quite addictive, I read it wondering throughout what Rhiannon would do next, at times she completely infuriated me and I found myself shaking my head as I read and at other times I was really impressed with her actions taking in to her account her being only 16 years old.  Read more here

My thoughts

It is a fast paced thriller that keeps the pages turning as we are taken on a roller coaster ride with twists and turns a many and I didn’t have a clue how it was going to turn out.  If I thought it was fast paced at the beginning from about 75% the pace picks up and the adrenaline pumps as we are treated to a mind blowing conclusion you will not forsee.  Read more here
