Redemption Road by John Hart is one of those engaging page turners that has so many layers, twists and turns that a reader is sure to be hooked right from the opening pages. Well written and complex there’s never a dull moment as the stories of multiple characters are weaved together wonderfully as the pages turn.
I would warn that this book is dark and violent read at times but if a fan of a good crime thriller this one would be for you. Never a dull moment and even if a reader could guess some outcomes there was just so much going on that I’m sure some will come as a surprise. A great read that I’d definitely recommend checking out.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
