🎉🎉🎉 HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY TO ANT MIDDLETON 🎉🎉🎉 Cold Justice is out today and I’m sharing my thoughts of Ant Middleton’s first step into fiction after a number of best selling non-fictions publications.
Massive thanks to Kirsteen Astor of Little, Brown UK for my advanced copy of Cold Justice.
Mallory – he was the best of the best, a Special Forces leader and a hero. But then he made a fatal decision, gambling with the lives of his men with terrible consequences: two dead, and his young friend Donno left in a coma.
Back on the streets, with nothing to lose, Mallory has a darkness growing inside him, a dangerous need to seek out trouble. Then Donno’s mother asks him for help: her other son, Scott, has gone missing in South Africa, and she wants Mallory to find him.
Perhaps it’s redemption, perhaps he’s looking for revenge on the world, but suddenly Mallory has a purpose, and nothing and no one is going to stand in his way.
A THRILLER SO REAL IT HURTS.
What Did I Think?
Meet Mallory, ex Special Forces soldier, a man with baggage and a temper. He’s seen a lot in his time in the forces and believe you me, it’s traumatic. But now he’s looking for a missing man and the local police aren’t the most helpful… missing adult men don’t seem to be treated as a concern.
As Mallory heads to South Africa, I got an blow by blow insight into his past traumas as the story jumped between timelines all held together by one man in a coma. Mallory’s loyalty to this man knows no bounds, putting his life on the line to find Donno’s brother up against some seriously dangerous people with unlimited reach and resources. Will Mallory find Scott? Will Donno wake up? I needed answers to both questions !!!
I really liked Mallory. He’s a reluctant investigator but he’s a damn good investigator. He doesnt like giving up, his tenacity is a credit to him. He gets the right balance of when to use his fists and when not to. And when he does, he’s someone you want on your side rather than your opponent.
Middleton’s first foray into fiction is a decent action thriller, ticked all the right boxes for me. Action packed and fast paced and a cliff hanger to boot. There had better be a follow up!!!!!
