Review

Crime thriller fans, this novel is a must read.
Jersey Girl Book Reviews
 
I can't wait for the next book. HopeRoad is a fast-paced,exciting novel.
Preferred Reading
 
A gripping read... A fascinating study in dark and evil... The stuff ofGreat British grit and dark,dark humour... Beautifully cinematic... far more cinematic than aMcDermid or a Rankin.

Barlowthrows in plenty of twists...he spins the yarn in fast-paced,very readable prose. HOPE ROAD is a finenovel, the first in a series, and I look forward to reading the others.

Today I Did This For Me

From the Author

I've been thinking about this book for years. Counterfeit banknotes figure prominently in the secondary plot of HOPE ROAD. I've always been fascinated by fake money. How do you spend it safely? Is it really such a bad thing to print your own money (governments do it all the time!). Finally, is there a way of 'passing on' large quantities of fake banknotes without causing financial harm to anyone? In other words, is there a perfect crime with counterfeit money? I think I've come pretty close...
