    This is a great sequel to Homecountry I loved reading about Peter again Although this book can be read on its own, I think it is better to read Homecountry first That way you can understand Peter better, including his connection to Dave and Sam Those three are so different, but together it really works Just like the first book, this book read like a movie or tv show You can just picture Peter at a crime scene, arguing with police, gathering information, drinking, being hungover, and solving crimes This story about feuds and corruption is interesting and towards the end things get really exciting when Peter finally finds out the true story.

    I found it a different style to the first book probably polished The story was intense and action driven As for the characters, they were either sympathetic,sinister or intriguing They were a great bunch of interesting characters I liked Slugger the best This book is funny in places which I thought wasn t supposed to happen in a thriller book but you can t be serious all the time Peter Clancy, is at his excessive best and it is good he has a girlfriend in this one I think the author has established himself as a great thriller writer Keep them coming.

    Melbourne in the late 1980s, and journalist Peter Clancy is working for The Truth Which, for those of us who were around in those days, in that place, conjures up a very clear vision Booze, coffee, dodgy goings on and journalism from the well extreme tabloid end of the scale.After being promoted to the Crime Beat and provided with the mandatory police scanner, Clancy is launched into Melbourne s seedy side, way back before mobile phones and the internet made keeping track of everyone and everything part of everybody s daily routine THORNYDEVILS builds a strong sense of the time and place without bashing the reader over the head with the details That s helped by the nice touches of dry, wry humour it s very Australian and a bit of whinging about the weather it s very Melbourne.The plot is complex without being complicated It feels right that an investigative journalist would stumble into this scenario It feels right that he d be hanging around with drag queens and barking mad cameramen It feels right that he d be drinking in The Tote It even feels right that two mates from Queensland have to get out of that state and hide out at Clancy s just in time to leap into the action.There is a fair bit of action built into THORNYDEVILS as well Nicely punctuated by a Triumph Stag that may, or may not cooperate, a bit of organised crime shenanigans and some nice lurking presences that never tip into caricature.Mostly though, for this reader, the characters in this book appealed Clancy feels like a good old fashioned journo nothing flash, sadly alone, looking for love in some rather odd places THORNYDEVILS is the second book in the Peter Clancy series following on from HOMECOUNTRY Worth a look, if for no other reason, than to remember the days of The Truth, pre mobile phones, pre Internet, when a drink in the pub on the way home every night was how you kept up with the gossip.http www.austcrimefiction.org revie

    Set in marvelous, murderous, Melbourne , Thornydevils follows the witty sarcastic journalist Peter Clancy as he pursues the story for his new crime column in The Truth, leading him to the sordid side of this corrupted vicious town.I had not read Peter s first endeavors in Homecountry nevertheless, Thornydevils is a standalone book that let me eager to read of TW Lawless works This book was a cleverly written page turner, full of action and twists that surprised me every chapter Unexpected, this book amazed me from the beginning to the end, even and especially in the last pages, when I thought it was already over Further, the book had a good humorous tone, which doesn t make it less of a thriller.Without a doubt, the best about this book was the wide range of peculiar characters well built, intriguing, smart, deceiving, with deep motivations and feelings, some sinister, others kooky, but all very distinctive, human and real.Overall, it was a very well built and paced story with an intriguing plot that lets you wondering what might happened next, so I congratulate the author and thank him for the copy I received.

    Set in Melbourne during the late 1980s, Thornydevils is a sexy, action packed romp featuring larrikin and hard living journalist Peter Clancy Peter likes his booze, his women and his coffee especially, I suspect from the scene in Townsville, his coffee, and is an all round decent guy in his own way Working for Melbourne publication The Truth, Peter has found himself promoted to the position of columnist and in the possession of a police scanner and then his adventures with a drug ring begin.Although I have not read the first novel in the series, I found Thornydevils quite easy to read and follow A number of the side characters were well drawn drag queen Concheeta and her boyfriend Ted for example, and just the fact that the novel was set in an era of police corruption and in a time before mobile phones and the internet makes for a brilliant set up Recommended for fans of Australian crime literature.Finally, a big shout out to author TW Lawless for sending me a review copy of his work.This review also appears on my blog, Kathryn s Inbox

    Thornydevils, Lawless s sopho novel, excels I enjoyed revisiting old friends from Homecountry, as much as I enjoyed the action, which takes Peter Clancy to Melbourne s docks and involves him in the underworld and drug importation Lawless has his own take on the thriller crime genre which is real,fast paced and humorous While Clancy can t be mistaken for anything other than Australian, he still manages to be universal Be warned this is a real I can t put it down page turner.

    Hard living, burning the candle at both ends, and a heavy drinker Aussie journalism at its lower end, but you can t help loving the character It seems too good to be true when he meets this incredibly beautiful, intelligent lawyer in the course of investigating corrupt police, drug running and a gang war Thank goodness he has a couple of good mates.

    First of all a big thank you to T.W Lawless for sending me a copy of this book Thornydevils is even better than Homecountry the characters old and new are solid and they seem to jump off the page The plot kept moving along at a good speed, making it a real pageturner There were some fascinating twists and turns and a couple of shockers along the way All in all a great read
