Praise for Book 1: Hit and Run “What a rollercoaster of emotions, twists and turns, At times very dark, I couldn't put my kindle down! Really good read from a brilliant author. Love Andy Maslen’s Gabriel Wolfe series and can't wait for the second book in this series. Wow! Highly recommended.” Ann Finn “Since starting this morning, I have struggled to put my Kindle down! Loving the new character, and at about 70% into the book I am really starting to look forward to how it's going to wrap up the story.... The one thing is that Stella must come out of it alive - there is after all another book in the series planned - a definite recommendation.” Mark Bright “After the first chapter I was hooked and I was really rooting for Stella Cole all the way to the last page. You are taken on mazy journey as Cole incurs significant emotional trauma and has to find her way out of her own deep and dark black hole. From there she has to confront her demons and find a way to overcome a shadowy world of power and the elite within the establishment. Simply put this book is un-putdownable!” Badabing666 GRAB YOUR COPY OF HIT BACK HARDER
