Good Deed by Steve Christie
Steve Christie has woven a complex plot which will have you on the edge of your seat and breathless with excitement as you won’t be able to stop reading until you find out how it all ends.
Good Deed by Steve Christie is a fast paced crime novel that introduces a new Scottish detective hero, DI Ronnie Buchanan. Events take Buchanan from his base in Aberdeen on a frantic journey around all the major Scottish cities as his increasingly deadly pursuit of a mysterious criminal master mind known only as Vince comes to a breath-taking climax back in Aberdeen.
“The pace of Good Deed is exceptional and unremitting. It is the kind of book that demands to be read in one sitting, but most readers will be so breathless as the saga unfolds without pause that they will need occasional rests before eagerly returning for more.”
About the Author:
A Real Ale Loving Scottish Crime Writer. Originally from Aberdeen ,now residing in Edinburgh.This is his first novel. Christie is currently working on my second novel featuring Ronnie Buchanan. The working title is Cold Shot. Good Deed is a fast paced crime novel that captures the reader from beginning to end.
Described by one reviewer as “Christopher Brookmyre on speed, with more thrills and less farce,” the gripping story of Good Deed rattles along relentlessly, leaving the reader breathless but enthralled. Good Deed introduces a new Scottish detective hero, DI Ronnie Buchanan, who is certain to quickly attract a legion of fans.
Review by Hunter S. Jones: Loved This book. Personally, I found it easy to read from the first chapter. Some British authors write with verbiage that I, as an American, can find difficult to read. Not Mr. Christie. It didn’t take long to understand and get involved in Good Deed.
So many great Scottish locations are vividly portrayed just as I remembered them from my visits to Scotland. The characters are well developed as is the storyline. You just can’t put this book down once you start it.
I thoroughly recommend Good Deed. It is very well done. I look forward to Mr. Christie’s next novel.

As I started reading I was totally engrossed in what was in front of me. I couldn’t wait to see what was next i love the twists and turns this book takes.
It’s excitement from the very beginning a totally awesome read.
Review by Juliet Madison:
When opportunist thieves Liam & Mark break into a car left unlocked at a service station near Dundee they get one hell of a lot more than they bargained for because the car’s owner, Lucy Kennedy, was a courier and she had left four kilos of cocaine unattended.
But the cocaine belongs to dangerous men who want it back. Lucy’s incinerated body is found in the car boot. Enter DI Ronnie Buchanan.
These events together with another murder in Edinburgh, kick off a complex case involving dangerous drug lord’s and a heavy who likes disguises.
Buchanan and his team come across a string of related crimes and they try to find out the truth behind the murders. But how will it all end?
Steve Christie has woven a complex plot which will have you on the edge of your seat and breathless with excitement as you won’t be able to stop reading until you find out how it all ends. Mr Christie’s characterisation and dialogue is second to none and you even find yourself feeling a small degree of sympathy for hardened criminals. DI Ronnie Buchanan is larger than life with a voracious appetite for justice truth and beer as well as a wicked sense of humour and his camaraderie with his sidekick Sergeant Maxwell makes you root for them from the beginning.
I will definitely be looking to read more of Steve Christie’s books in the future. He neatly ties up all the loose ends and creates something awesome. Other crime writers could really learn from this book and it would make an awesome TV mini series. I defy all true fans of crime fiction not to enjoy this!!
