Welcome to my spot on the tour for No Good Deed – Anne Cleasby! Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the copy of this book and the opportunity to be on the tour. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.
The year 2623.
A serial killer.
An exploited girl.
A drug dealer.
Four hundred years after Earth established its first planetary colony, resources on the home planet are limited. Earth’s residents are divided into citizens, who have legal rights and a license to live, and the rest. The unlicensed have always been vulnerable, but now, a serial killer is targeting them.
Scarlet is unlicensed. He and his partners exist outside the London walls, making a living by manufacturing and selling illegal lifestyle drugs. None of them expect to make old bones.
Maeve is unlicensed. She’s eighteen, and has survived by allowing a state guardian to exploit her. Now he’s sold her to a brothel outside the protection of London’s walls.
When Scarlet rescues Maeve from her violent owner, he has no idea that his good deed will lead to an accusation of multiple murder.
Suddenly, the security forces are on his tail.
Scarlet flees from Earth to a small hub-station on the edge of unexplored space. Close behind him are Maeve, a serial killer, a killer’s mother, and his two concerned partners.
No Good Deed is a scifi centered around a high stakes, fast paced adventure in the year 2623. From serial killers, to exploitation, to drug dealers, this story has so much to keep you on your toes. I haven’t read a great scifi in quite a while, and I’m so glad I decided to give No Good Deed a try!
I rather enjoyed the way this was written. Sometimes, Scifi can be a bit…daunting. No Good Dead was crafted to be crazy futuristic but also readable for the average reader. I appreciated this because I never felt lost or overwhelmed.
This book is explosive with its pacing. There are so many obstacles and things happening, but it’s handled in such a way, that I was able to just get lost in the story and it felt like I was there.
If you’re a scifi fan, with a love for great characters and an action-packed plot, give No Good Deed a chance.
Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Anne Cleasby lives in the English Lake District with her dog and two cats.
As a child Anne wanted to be a scientist, wear a white coat and explore outer space. She worked as a scientist for a very long time, but never got to fly a spaceship or even travel beyond the solar system. This was a huge disappointment given the reasons for her career choice, so eventually she made up stories instead. Probably just as well, as she is claustrophobic.
Anne writes dystopian fiction (Degrees of Freedom series) and science fiction under her own name, and urban fantasy/paranormal romance as Annalisa Carr.
