NEW RELEASE REVIEW By Trish: Snitch (Shea Stevens #2) by Dharma Kelleher (@zenpunkdharma)

snitchIn this hard-edged biker thriller, Shea Stevens goes undercover with a women’s motorcycle club eager to make its mark on the desert—when all she wants to do is ride off into the sunset.

Shea Stevens thought she was finished with outlaws. After a terrifying brush with death in Arizona’s criminal underworld, Shea rededicates her energy to her girlfriend, her ragtag family, and her custom motorcycle shop, Iron Goddess—until the CI agreement she signed to dodge a weapons charge comes back to haunt her.

People are dying from a club drug laced with strychnine. A witness tells the lead detective that the bad pills are coming from a dealer in an all-female motorcycle club: the Athena Sisterhood. Under threat of jail time, Shea is tasked with sniffing out the truth—by infiltrating the Sisterhood. Though they claim to be a bunch of fun-loving feminists, they’re packing some serious firepower. Worse, they’re led by Shea’s former old lady, Debbie Raymond.

The awkward reunion is just the start of Shea’s troubles. As a prospect in the Sisterhood, there’s a target on her back from day one. Biker culture breeds paranoia and violence, which is the whole reason Shea quit in the first place. But she’ll do anything to keep her family safe—even if it means snitching on one of her own.

Trish’s Review

Snitch is the second Shae Stevens book. Shea is a tough biker who just wants build bikes and be with her family, but her outlaw biker history keeps pulling her back in. The story picks up a few months after the first book.

What I like about this book (and the series in general) is its edginess. It really sucks you in. Part of it is the conflict and contradiction between Shea’s values and her nature. She wants nothing to do with MC culture, but once she’s in, she’s all in. I think the author does a good job making it believable.

Another thing I found interesting in this is Shea’s relationship with Monster and his old lady. They practically raised her, but because they’re still in the Confederate Thunder MC, she absolutely hates them. This is rather sad, I think, because they really seem to love her and her niece.

One thing I noticed was that instead feeling natural to the story, the prevalence of LGBT characters seemed contrived. In many cases, the revelation of sexual preference was just, bam, there, without any clear tie to the storyline. In other cases, it seemed downright out of character. I like diversity in stories, but I don’t particularly care for it when it’s forced.

Overall, I really liked the story because it was gritty, dangerous, and hard to put down. I’d recommend Snitch to fans of MC thrillers, biker culture, and stories who feature strong female characters.
