A Lot of Nerve is an impressive debut novel featuring small-time villain, Jonesy. Despite his ‘dodgy deals’, he is somehow a very likeable character; the reader is definitely on his side.
The story is mostly told from Jonesy’s point of view with occasional insights into the minds of others. This helps to move the story forward.
It has a striking cover, touches of humour and some wonderfully quirky characters that come to life on the page; it would be easy to imagine it turned into a movie.
I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Jonesy. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
