Houghton's often poetic writing style is his unique selling point. His global readership has compared him to the contemporary greats James Patterson, Lee Child, Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, and even likened his suspenseful storytelling to such grand masters of mystery as Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie.
"Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a story that will draw you in and keep you wanting more." 'Killing Hope' ★★★★★ - The Kindle Book Review
★★★★★ "Up there with the greats" Mary Connelly - UK
"I am an avid reader of the great crime/thriller writers such as Patterson, Child, Connelly, Lehane but this book has to rank as being equal to these great authors.
The style of writing is every bit up there with top authors and never at any time was there an inkling as to who the killer was. What a gob smacking ending. Absolutely brilliant."
★★★★★ "New Hammet/Chandler" Prof. Jon P. Bloch - USA
"Houghton writes jaw-droppingly well. He has a poet's love of language which he uses to maintain a perfect pitch throughout the tale.
This is a book that you can't put down not only because the story has you hooked, but because the author simply dazzles the reader with his writing style."
★★★★★ "Do Yourselves A Favour!" Jackie Offen - Australia
"I had this book sitting on my Kindle for a while before I actually read it, I wish I'd known then what I know now, Killing Hope is easily the best book I've read in quite some time. The writing style is fresh, concise and to the point but amazingly still very descriptive, the scenes are set perfectly."

TAKING LIBERTY is Book 3 of 3 in the Gabe Quinn Thrillers series. I recommend reading KILLING HOPE and CROSSING LINES first, as this is the best way to experience the overall story arc as it is intended.
