Editorial Reviews

Review

Hugely original and action-packed, this book is not for the faint-hearted. The closest equivalent I can think of in terms of tone is Kill Bill, but the plot is quite different. It's great to see a female protagonist in such a book. This one is well worth checking out.- RD eBook Fanatic
"The story is compulsive and grips you from the start. 
This is a short book with a twist at the end which leaves it open to a sequel....looking forward to that!" - Colette Brown.
"The ghost of Lisbeth Salander (the girl with the dragon tattoo) dogs the heels of Nancy Kerr as she wreaks her revenge on the men who killed her parents and savagely raped her. Set in Glasgow, the book has a strong sense of location and fairly rattles along, every page demanding my full attention. The narrator's voice is perfect for the genre; Jenny Thomson knows how to tell a tale and her use of language and location bring the pages vividly to life. Although the violence is, at times, eye-watering, Nancy and Tom (the man she slips into a relationship with), do possess a moral compass - albeit one which steers a course unfamiliar to most of us.
This book is not for the fainthearted - if you're squeamish, be prepared to flinch at some of the scenes - but even someone like me, who doesn't normally read this genre, will definitely be reading the next in the Nancy Kerr and Tommy McIntyre series.".- CA Mathews 

From the Author

I wanted to create pure escapist fiction, with strong women characters, that people would enjoy reading where the action wouldn't let up. I wanted to write the books I wanted to read that simply weren't there.

The Crime Files books are aimed at readers who like to read about tough women who will stand up for what they believe in. They can be violent, but they will always be entertaining and the violence isn't just random. Usually it's the bad guys (and gals) getting their comeuppance.

Note - the first two books in the series were previously published by another publisher.

I have to say this first. I live in America, but I've been to Europe in the 80s so this tale brought me back to Europe.
Nancy Kerr was dealt a devastating blow when she went to visit her parents one day, She was violated mentally, and physically by evil assassins in their home. She survived, but was irrevocably damaged ever since that event.
Rape not only violates your body, your mind can be raped with ideas forced into it.
This reminded me of Wire in the Blood, MI6, Luther, and Touching Evil. Hermione Norris could play Nancy. I like European crime drama stories, and Jenny pegged the air of the dark excitement in Hell To Pay. What do they say over there? Oh yeah, Good on ya, Jenny.

This was a well-written crime drama. It details horrific events but wasn't too graphic. Nancy Kerr, the heroine, is tough but resilient and determined to get revenge. Tommy appears later in the book but is an interesting character. Its a quick read and a very satisfying first book in a series. I highly recommend it if this is your genre.

I expected a lot more out of this book. Don't get me wrong it was good and I liked where she went with the story it just flowed too quickly for my liking.

I wish Tommy would have appeared soone, and when he did it just felt like it was thrust into the story.

Then she hits you with that "to be continued...." well now I HAVE to read the next one! I want to know more. It isn't necessarily a cliffhanger, just leaves it open and wondering. Maybe the next book will make up for the details lacking in this one.

People passing through miserable circumstances due to others may never forgive them anyway. This novel also features similar story, the life of the main character was entirely changed because of some mad persons and after passing through the unbearable pains and hardships, she finally decided to take revenge. This book is so imaginative that one can’t stop reading it till the end.

Nancy Kerr, she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her parents were targeted at the hands of a mad man and they all paid the price.
She arrived at her parents in a random act. Just a visit that was common, and what she found changed her world forever.
Fourteen months later she wakes up in a mental hospital and must relived the torture she endured.
Remembering the visions of her parents and the torture they to had to endure.
Nancy seeks revenge.
She sets out to make them pay for what they have down to her family and herself.
I was intrigued...

"Whatever the reason for what happened, they shouldn't have messed with my family, and now that they have, I'm going to mess with them in ways they could never have imagined." Nancy

The danger of the situation did not stop her from searching for the men that tortured and raped her, leaving her for dead. In fact remembering the details only made her need stronger.
They had to pay for what they had put her through. They had to pay for killing her parents and it was up to her to make that happen. She had to get her chance and she would stop at nothing to make sure that happened.

Now I know that this has book one and two coming out but...
UNFAIR.
Now I am hooked wanting to know about Tommy, honestly the little information at the end was just wrong. Now I have to wait to find out the truth behind that little notation.

A captivating read. The author did a wonderful job writing a story that keeps you on the edge of the seat but not over the edge. The characters and plot is so fascinating it was hard for me to put the book down. I am looking forward to reading more from the author.

One day can change your life. One day can ruin your life. This is what happened to Nancy Kerr. 36 chapters that will keep your attention till the end. I really, really like the author writing style. This is one of my favorite fiction books in my library. Thanks to the author for sharing with us this excellent book, I'm very looking forward for new titles!

I’ve been looking for a book lately that would take me away from the genres I’ve been reading and give me something different, fresh and new and in Hell to Pay, and its author Jenny Thomson, I found what I was looking for.

This is book one in a series, that follows the lead character of Nancy Kerr as she rights not only the wrongs done to her, but to those that surround her, bringing along the police and a very intriguing vigilante in Tommy for the ride.

For me as a reader, this book had a little bit of everything. Intrigue, Suspense, Mystery, Revenge, with just a sprinkle of romance to spice things up.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a story with such a badass, take no prisoner’s kind of character that Nancy was a breath of fresh air for me. After witnessing what happened to her and her family, what she inevitably lived through and what they lost their lives for, I couldn’t help but become invested in her and the mission that is the ultimate premise of this book.

I wanted to see those that did this to her pay for what they inflicted and man did I get one hell of a pay off, but before all of that takes place, you’re taken on one hell of a bumpy and dangerous ride right alongside her.

Tommy I think was a brilliant addition here. I went into the book assuming as I read that she would going to eventually lean on the police and they would be the ones working in tandem with her, but as soon as he stepped foot on the scene, I was glad it was Tommy.

Questions abound about this mystery man, even more so with the way this book ends and I find myself unable to wait before diving straight into the second book to see if some of them will be answered.
