    'I enjoyed the characters that will lead the reader into the next book in this series. However, the novel stands on its own. It is straightforward prose with Aussie humor and 'Way of life' examples.' - Roy Murry Reviews.
    'Get your thinking cap ready and make sure you don't have any pets that can make sudden noises while reading, this one may make you a bit jumpy. 
    I really enjoyed the individuality Lawless brought to this novel. It manages to set itself apart from other Mystery novels I've read recently.' - Bailey Ember Reviews.
    'This is mystery as black humour, at its best: a thrilling ride through the Australian outback, full of tongue-in-cheek references, a bit of romance (where would Pete be without his love-interest?) and a lot of blood-curdling action. It's topical, satirical, biting. TW Lawless is unapologetically unique, and that's part of his allure for me. All in all, a fun ride.' - A Most Avid Reader.

    ThornyDevils by T.W. Lawless

    "Thornydevils is a sexy, action-packed romp featuring larrikin and hard-living journalist, Peter Clancy." - Kathryn White Book Blog. 

    "The plot is complex without being complicated. It feels right that an investigative journalist would stumble into this scenario. It feels right that he'd be hanging around with drag-queens and barking mad cameramen. It feels right that he'd be drinking in The Tote. It even feels right that two mates from Queensland have to get out of that state and hide out at Clancy's - just in time to leap into the action." - Australian Crime Fiction.
