He does what’s right. Not what’s easy.

Jeremiah O’Connell made his name solving problems in London and now does the same in LA. The problems other people can’t or won’t touch? They’re the ones that end up at Jerry’s door.

Suddenly Jeremiah has problems of his own when he sets out to right a wrong and finds himself on the hitlist of one of LA’s most feared drug gangs.

As the stakes rise, so does the body count, and Jerry has the fight of his life on his hands. Now, with high-class escort Noah in tow, Jeremiah must revisit his old London stomping grounds and assemble his team in order to wage all-out war on the streets on Tinseltown…

Book Review

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.

Planner pages in the reading journal

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.
