Savage Row by Britney King - A Book Review


I love a good thriller every now and then so when I was approached by OrangeSky Audio to listen to Savage Row by Britney King I jumped at the chance.  It has all the suspense and excitement that I want in a thriller combined with all the insight of a Women’s Fiction read.

Plot Summary 


Told from multiple POV, Amy Stone is a wife, mother and real estate salesman.  She’s content with her life but is also ambitious, striving for the gold status with her company.  When she agrees to host an open house for another agent, the last person who she thought she’d see is Jack Mooney, a career criminal whose spent the past decade in jail. He remembers her very well - after all, she sat on the jury that found him guilty.  She’s all he’s been thinking about these past ten years and so for Jack it’s time for revenge.  As Mooney begins his crusade of terrorizing Amy and her family, the police don’t seem to be able to offer much.  Will Amy be able to outwit him before it’s too late and she loses everything?


Book Review


I enjoyed this book, my first for this author, which kept me engaged throughout.  There are several other characters on the periphery of the story who keep you guessing if all the chaos surrounding Amy is solely due to Mooney. The book is a shorter one at around 250 pages, but you’d never know it because so much happens during the course of the book.  The characters are well developed and interesting.  Savage Row has some violent scenes including an incident involving the family dog, so readers should be aware of this going into the book.


Audiobook Review


I listened to the audiobook format of Savage Row which was narrated by Laura Jennings, who really gives a fantastic performance.  I felt as though she was almost whispering at times -  accounting for what had happened so as not to be overheard which provided an interesting layer to the book.  Her voice was clear and expressive and really held my interest.  I listened to the book at my usual 1.25x speed which I found to be comfortable.  I encourage those who enjoy audiobooks to choose this format.



What I Liked About Savage Row:

  • The character development
  • The level of engagement
  • The combination of thriller and women's fiction


I Recommend This Book To:


Those readers who enjoy psychological thrillers from multiple POV.
