Two female main characters in love with the wrong men, from different social backgrounds (although not really) set in Belfast - the town Ms McCullough knows so well - what more could you ask for in the capable hands of this writer? I don't know what it is with the Irish but they sure know how to tell a story!
I would suggest to everyone NOT to read the comment section here until after you've finished Danger, Danger because they give away elements that are crucial to the story and might spoil some of the fun discovering the intricate story plan behind Danger, Danger yourself. For example, I didn't see the sister-bond coming so this fact gave me the cohesion in the story only towards the end, tying all the loose bits together in a clever way.
The book didn't last three days in my hands although I spent most of the time in hospital due to the illness of my daughter but Danger, Danger helped me to relax in between all the worrying. Still, you don't need to find yourself in such an extreme situation to enjoy this book. Really everything is in place and the writing flows ever so effortlessly and the characters are so alive you instinctly feel for the goodies and hate the baddies and pray the story will end well, which it...
I already enjoyed Mc Cullough's first book Belfast Girls but Danger, Danger is another great accomplishment from this Irish writer! A thoroughly enjoyable read deserving each one of its 5 stars!
Danger, Danger has action, romance, blackmail, fraud and mystique. It's sure to please anyone who loves a fast-paced book that contains all of the above and more. The editing is tight, and the writing is good. Ms. McCullough knows how to reveal her characters in bits and pieces without infodump and how to paint a vivid picture with words. The city of Belfast comes alive under Ms. McCullough's skilled hand.
I'm not going to spoil the conclusion, which revealed some surprises, but suffice it to say that it was very satisfying. I'll definitely read more of Ms. McCullough's work and highly recommend Danger, Danger as a great, sure-to-please read.
This is a compelling work of fiction rich with the flavors of Ireland. Twist and double twists amp up the tension, along with sweet naïve love, and the pain of a mother who was forced to give up one of her babies at birth. This is a story of love in all its guises, but with action that takes your breath away. I highly recommend you visit Belfast and get to know Katie and Annie. You won't soon forget them.
As the plot develops, our heroines start to have a bit more sense, and I did like the final wrapping up.
The story proceeds with the two strands running parallel, finally coming together at the very last.
A nice thriller, well told.
I think all the brilliant reviews hyped it up a bit too much for me so i was slightly dissapointed by it. Its a bit like when a movie is hyped up and you go and see it and whilst you liked it, it didnt do it for you due to the hype.
However it was a great read and the story was a good one with plenty of action and some good twists and turns.
I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more of his work.

But with that said I still enjoyed the story and I look forward to reading other books by this author.
Gerry McCullough shows how it should be done!
All the main characters in this fast paced romance / thriller are authentic, well developed people. It's the mingling of their love and greed, passion and fear, faith and loyalty that creates and drives the plot. Moreover, as we follow the often unexpected shifts in their circumstances, we see those characters changing and developing, for better or for worse!
This complex interplay of personalities and situations - set against vivid and authentic backgrounds - is masterfully handled, but without losing pace and energy. The tension in the two interwoven plots is steadily built up until they crash together! The timing is perfect, and the conclusion satisfying - all the more so since it remains throughout entirely in keeping with who the characters are.
A great story, and marvellously well crafted.
Please read this, don't miss out on a great book
Highly recommended without reservation.
Their lives at times run almost parallel. Katie and her boyfriend Declan run a thin line with drug involvement, whilst her unknown sister Jo-Anne (Annie) survives in a different high profile world of Monet paintings and Zurich Swiss bank accounts.
Katie and Jo-Anne (Annie) finally get to meet when they are both involved in a tragic head on collision.
I absolutely fell in love with Gerry McCullough's block busting novel Belfast Girls, which in my opinion couldn't be surpassed and very worthy of the Man Booker Prize. Danger Danger is an amazing page turning, stunning novel, which caught me by surprise and is equal to Belfast Girls in every respect.
I can't wait for her next novel to be published. I know I will love it whatever the storyline. McCullough cannot put a foot wrong and has a natural flair for writing blockbusters.

I felt I was in the story with the characters. There were times when I wanted to become a caring but firm father to Katie, and drag her away from where she was.
I haven't read Belfast Girls yet, but I've put it to the top of my list.
The final chapters were enthralling, exciting and on the other side of the scale, almost heart-breaking until the happy ending which like all good novels leaves the reader satisfied and perhaps wanting more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance and a thrill or three.
It's cheap and it passes the time but I wasn't impressed. It is implausible in the extreme. I didn't really feel any depth of character development and the ending felt very cheesy without any realisim to the emotional closure that would have happened in "real life".
I suppose my most obvious comment would be that I won't be downloading other books of Gerry's, even if free.
I wouldn't normally leave a poor review but I felt the ones left so far left a very unbalanced picture.
The characters are well drawn, although the two main females are related, they have their own personalities and definite individuality.
Well done, Gerry.
