#BookReview - #BreakingBones by Robert White

The streets of Preston are alive with music and banter.

But nothing can drown out the sound of breaking bones.

Inseparable since childhood and feared by their community, Tony, Eddie and Frankie are beyond the reach of justice.

The brutal gang, The Three Dogs, are a law unto themselves.

Detective Jim Hacker has watched The Dogs grow from thuggish youths to psychotic criminals. He seems to be the only one who wants to see their empire fall.

Meanwhile Jamie Strange, a young Royal Marine, finds himself embroiled in the lives of The Three Dogs when his girlfriend, Laurie Holland, cuts off their engagement… to be with the most dangerous of The Dogs: Frankie Verdi.

Jamie vows to save Laurie, before Frankie damns them both.

Every dog will have its day.

This gritty, addictive crime story, fizzes with the energy of the eighties. 

Breaking Bones will appeal to fans of Martina Cole, Roberta Kray and Stephen Leather.

It's my pleasure to be reviewing Breaking Bones today, many thanks to the publishers a…

Sunathon!


It's been a little while since I posted a review, I've still been reading but life seems to have got in the way of review writing. With the summer holidays here I will have to play catch up soon!
In the meantime I recently took part in Sunathon, the brainchild of Emma Louise over at EmmaLouBookBlog The idea was to set aside a week for reading as much as possible and to share the books you read on Twitter, using the hashtag #sunathon.
I didn't manage to read a huge number of books, I went camping with just my youngest from Thursday to Friday and so that curtailed much of my reading time. I did however, read The Last Family in England by Matt Haig, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and The Final Testimony of Raphael Ignatius Phoenix by Paul Sussman.

Reviews for all three will be posted in a while, I loved two but was underwhelmed by the third, I'll leave you to guess which! I've also been reading a few chapters a night of Shadow Forest by Matt Haig to my daughter.
Thank you Emma for suggesting and hosting #sunathon and I'm delighted to see the announcement that there is more to come - count me in!
