  • enjoyable adventure

    The 2021 Australian debut crime fiction (Ned Kelly award) winner was first time author Loraine Peck, with her novel The Second Son. It is set in current day Sydney and portrays the Novak crime family as they deal with the ambush killing of their eldest son. Johnny, the second son, must revenge his death and assume his brother’s place in the family business. Conflicted between protecting his wife and son and doing his father’s bidding, a series of violent events occur that could lead to a gangland war. With its realistic characters and western Sydney ambiance comes a truly remarkable crime story. With hassles from police, his family in danger and the pressure for revenge, Johnny is conflicted and his true values challenged. A most enjoyable adventure that makes for a four-and-a-half-star rating and possibly more mayhem to come? A note for those unaware of Aussie idiom, “U-ey” translated to mean a U-turn when driving.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The underworld returns

    The book was a slow page turner at the start. After reading at half way through it started to heat up. As each page leading to finish you finally find out a little of the underworld coming to life within the Sydney western suburbs. By far a good read, everyone out there take a read of this book for your enjoyment.

    Thanks for your feedback!
