We’re delighted to be sharing Laura’s thoughts about A Violent Gentleman by Danny O’Leary on the Orion tour.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this fast-paced crime thriller.
Filled with action, suspense and violence, I was fascinated until the end.
Jeremiah O’Connell an ex bouncer from Essex has moved to LA and earning well as body protection and solving any problems, which means he gets the job done. He has great strength, charm but also has a hard side. An enjoyable character with an intriguing personality.
A problem for Jerry involves LA’s notorious drug gang CT40 and most importantly stopping their boss Ronson Beaufoy. A villain who shows no mercy to his crew or anyone that gets on the wrong side of him. A sadistic and evil man who shows his revenge using violence.
Jerry meets a beautiful high- class escort called Noah and she becomes his side-kick which includes a visit back to England to enlist support from Jerry’s old crew back in Essex.
A Violent Gentleman is a great crime read.

Danny O’Leary clawed his way up from ‘working the doors’ of some of Essex and East London’s most violent pubs and clubs. By his early 20’s was working the security behind the notorious Epping Forest Country Club, an immensely popular nightclub that, at its height, welcomed thousands of people a night; including many well-connected people and a host of celebrities. From here Danny went on to organise security for Waterstones and HMV during their celebrity in-store appearances, and eventually, the personal security of a number of celebrities including Katie Price, Noel Fielding, Courtney Love, P Diddy and Katy Perry.
