A Message from The Editor
What I loved instantly about Poor Boy Road is that it’s quite simply a damn good story. It doesn’t make pointless attempts to tick any diversity boxes and James didn’t write it to follow publishing trends. This is the perfect action thriller, with a tender tough man hero to rival all that have come before. But wanting to know how Jake Caldwell saves the day makes page-turning unstoppable.
Ares Road is the sequel to Poor Boy Road and, boy, it’s good. Fast-paced, thrilling, exciting. But James has managed to balance plenty of humour with that gritty real-life edge he masters so well. An absolute must for thriller fans, in my opinion.
