Welcome to the blog tour for Hustle by Owen Mullen hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources. Read on for more information and check out my review!
What was meant to be a straightforward jewellery heist goes horribly wrong, and the thieves are forced to take a hostage to make their escape. But when they discover their prisoner is the infamous Nina Glass – one of the bosses of the most dangerous criminal dynasty in London – they soon realise they have made a terrible mistake.
Greed wins out over good sense and the gang decide to make the best of a bad situation. They send Luke Glass a ransom note. But messing with London’s top crime dynasty is a serious error. Now Luke must track down the gang who abducted his sister before they carry out their brutal threats.
The Glass family have other problems. The crooked cop they have on their payroll – DCI Oliver Stanford – makes an unwelcome discovery. The insider they had all presumed dead, may in fact have survived, and still be feeding information to the police.
Under attack from all sides, and desperate to save his sister, Luke has the reputation and survival of the crime dynasty in his hands – is this the end of the Glass family?
I’m a big fan of this series and a big fan of this author, so it was a pretty easy decision for me to say yes to reviewing Hustle. This can be read as a standalone, but I think you should read the whole series. You really get to know these characters as you read, and while there’s enough to understand reading just Hustle, you’ll be missing out on a fantastic series!
I love this author’s use of description. It’s never so overdone it gets hard to read. There is enough given so that I feel like I’m part of the story and my mind is able to fill in the rest. It makes the book fast paced and easy to get lost in, which is why I read.
Hustle is a gangland, crime thriller that had me on the edge of my seat for the majority of the book. I love all the characters. The writing was excellent. I would definitely recommend checking this one out.
