“Fantastic read, great characters, gripping storyline. Definitely want to read more adventures from Ratso. Roaring success Mr Stewart!”

“Douglas Stewart has done a great job and has created in Detective Ratso a character who is quick-witted, clever and a worthy addition to the action thriller genre.”

“Each chapter leaves you eager to continue reading. This was the first of Stewart’s novels I have read but I will definitely read more.”

“In Hard Place, author Douglas Stewart offers up an oh-so-British thriller brimming with chilling mayhem, questionable police tactics, tough and terrible villains and a deep understanding of the real world of crime and cops. Try to put it down – I highly recommend.”

“I read a lot of thrillers and Hard Place is high up on my list of favourites.”

“Hard Place is inspired by a real-life event, though Douglas Stewart has transformed this into an entertaining crime thriller in the same manner as Roger Donaldson’s 2008 film “The Bank Job”.

“I will definitely buy more “Ratso” publications.”
