Review of Revenge for a Hanging by Richard Smith
This is the first BHW by Richard Smith and what a debut it is. The book moves forwards at tremendous pace after hooking the reader straight away by beginning in the middle of a brutal beating. This act of violence needing an explanation, and one the reader will only get by reading more.
Richard Smith doesn’t believe in making life easy for his young hero. Rory Rimmer finding himself accused and arrested for crimes he didn’t commit on more than one occasion. This leads to a number of well-written court scenes.
