Deep Blue Trouble

Steph Broadribb. Orenda (IPG, dist.), $14.95 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-1-910633-93-9
At the outset of British author Broadribb’s rough and tumble sequel to Deep Down Dead, Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson makes an off-the-books deal with FBI special agent Alex Monroe. She agrees to track down Gibson “the Fish” Fletcher, a thief turned murderer who’s escaped from police custody, in exchange for Monroe ensuring the freedom of her former lover, JT Tate, who’s in prison awaiting trial for multiple killings that he confessed to but didn’t commit. Tate, who’s under threat from imprisoned members of the Miami Mob, has only recently learned that he’s the father of Anderson’s nine-year-old daughter, Dakota, whose safety is also in play. The deck is stacked against Anderson, starting with Monroe’s insistence that she work with bounty hunter Dez McGregor, who’s dismissive of her talents. As Anderson follows Fletcher’s trail to California, she faces insults, attacks, and deceptions from a host of people connected to the fugitive, including his brother and his lover, with grit and determination. Readers will cheer her every step of the way. Agent: Oli Munson, A.M. Heath (U.K.). (July)
