Gary Braswell has one chance to pull his life out of the gutter.
Success means money – lots of it. Failure means death.
Can hard-drinking, cocaine-snorting Gary pull it off?
Dodgy real estate agents, nouveau riche Russian émigrés, corrupt federal cops and femme fatales, SOLD’s characters jump off the page.
Sold is a thrilling, exciting and action-packed novel that will keep readers entertained and turning the pages with haste from beginning to end thanks to the exceptionally talented author Blair Denholm. Sold is a commanding novel that is breathtaking as well as absorbing; the book may deal with some gloomy themes, but the journey that unfolds is wildly fun and is guaranteed to keep readers entertained into the early hours of the morning. If you are a reader who, like me, loves being taken on a wild adventure that you will not be able to forget for a long time then Sold is the novel for you so do not miss out!
Sold follows the troubled protagonist of the novel, Gary Braswell, a man with good intentions whose life has spiraled out of control. Gary could be described as your typical man who works hard for a living, but sadly, his hard work is not paying off because he is failing at his job… badly. Gary is a car salesman and well, he is making no sales and to make matters worse he is in deep debt with a loan shark called Jocko Mackenzie and let’s just say that he is not the nicest of men! Jocko is the type of man who will want the loan paid off so this takes Gary on a dark, troubling and dangerous journey in which he must do everything to repay his loanshark before it is too late. The reader will follow Gary as he meets an array of criminals, including Russians and con-men and even ‘bent cops’. The journey that unfolds will have readers captivated as well as terrified for the protagonist but the story is wildly entertaining so do not miss out on this gem of a book!
The story of Sold is an electrifying one that had me entertained from the start. When I read the description of the book, I instantly knew I had to read it because the mention of crime and loan sharks had me hooked! I love reading gritty noir thrillers and Sold is one of the best ones I have read in a long time. The story that unraveled was so entertaining that I struggled to put the book down. Sold can only be described as the type of read you think about when having to put it down; when I did I would not just think about the book but long for it, and this is thanks to Blair Denholm’s accomplished literature.
Blair Denholm is a fantastic author for many reasons, but one of the core reasons is that he was able to grab my attention very quickly at the start of the novel. With most books, it takes a while for the author to capture my attention but not with Denholm, oh no, he knew exactly what to write to have me hooked and what a ride it was. The twists and turns alone courtesy of Denholm are noteworthy because they were so shocking as well as unpredictable, I love unpredictable stories where the story is continuously evolving so Sold indeed was the perfect read for me.
As Sold is a gem of a noir thriller that is guaranteed to entertain and thrill readers I, of course, have to award the astounding book five stars! So please, if you are looking for a noir thriller then Sold is for you. Be sure to have a look at Sold book lovers and also check back here next week because I will be interviewing the author Blair Denholm for my author spotlight feature and I am so excited to be doing so!
