Hello and welcome to our stop on the A Prison In The Sun blog tour!
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Stuart Field for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
After ten years in prison for his wife’s murder, Brian Armstrong is free.
When a freak accident with the prison transport gives him and two others an opportunity to escape, they seize it. With revenge in his heart, Brian disappears into the storm-filled city. After an ex-schoolteacher is found dead, Detective John Steel is brought in to investigate.
The circumstances are mysterious – just the way Steel likes it. His partner Samantha McCall is convinced the timing between the escape and the death of the teacher are more than coincidence. As they start to investigate, the case becomes more complex than they could have ever imagined. With time running out, can they find the killer and bring him to justice?

Brian Armstrong manages to escape prison due to a freak accident. When the deaths start there can only be one assumption as to who the culprit is. Will John Steel manage to find Brian before he kills again?
When I was first introduced to John Steel in my minds eye I saw him dressed like a character from a noir film or graphic novel. He is not afraid of getting his hands dirty or pushing the boundaries to get justice.
I found this to be an action packed story, and loved the character of John’s partner Samantha McCall. Broken Steel is a brilliant crime thriller that I quickly sped through as there was so much happening, twisting at each page turn.
This is my first John Steel novel, but I will definitely be reading more of this series as soon as I can get my hands on the books!
