Book Description:

Panicked at killing a man on a Northamptonshire country road, drunk driver Liam Ross buries the body in the woods. The man was an undercover cop. When Liam returns to the woods… the body has disappeared.

Set in present-day Northamptonshire, England, ‘One for the Road’ focuses on three interweaving threads: the repercussions for drunk driver Liam Ross after he hits a man on a country road when yet another argument with live-in nurse girlfriend, Jo, has driven him to the pub on that fateful night; gang underling Barry ‘Not Gary’ Newman; and newly married Todd Litten aka Neil Ryder, the policeman who was just doing his job.

My Thoughts

This started off very strong with so much to offer he reader. Really what I expect from this author as she has such depth in her writing.

The characters were well written which is what I prefer when I read. Bad characters that have no depth or shades to them easily can ruin what would have been a good book.

The story was interesting and I enjoyed the read. For some reason though I didn’t find it quite as good as the other books I have read by this author. It seemed to drag a little in some places.

It was still a great read but it was more of a slow burn then what I am used to.
