“Rollover is one of the best books I have ever read. I found it thrilling and exciting right from the first page. It jumped from one tense situation to the next and back again in each chapter leaving the reader breathless with anticipation I found the pace breath-taking and exhilarating. It was a great ending, far different from what I had imagined.”
“This is a thrilling book from start to finish. One of the best crime novels I've read in a long time. It has real pace and tension and the plot idea is a gem.”
Book Depository review.
“It's always enjoyable to discover a great novel and this was truly a reading pleasure. All the elements are here to satisfy even the most demanding critic. This great novel by James Raven could very well be on the road to "Best Seller" status as it deserves it! Rollover is a winner!”
“I have to say it's one of the best crime novels I've read. The pace is relentless from the opening page and it doesn't let up. The narrative is rich and full of details about an area of the UK I'm not familiar with. The story revolves around a huge lottery win and a journalist named Danny Cain who has to go on the run from both the police and a sadistic killer. It would make a great movie.”

“Who hasn't thought about winning the lottery? This book shows the dark, gritty side of winning. Life isn't all mansions and luxury automobiles after you win. There are people in the world who want something from you and this book reminds you of this. The book moves at a fast pace and pulls you into the fear and thrill of story. I highly recommend adding this to your library for anyone who likes a thriller and edge-of-your-seat type of read.”

“Rollover is a roller-coaster of a book. It's fast moving and exceptionally well written. It kicks off with a mega lottery win which leads to a gruesome murder and the kidnap of an innocent family.”
Barnes and Noble US.
“This is a cracking read that is full of pace and tension. The author keeps the reader guessing from the start and I honestly felt sorry for the fictional family caught up in a series of terrifying events that follow a huge lottery jackpot win. The characters are all believable and the plot is a humdinger! Great stuff.”

“The new Dick Francis! A stunning thriller. I had never heard of James Raven but have just bought his other books and will devour. Clever plot and cunning twist. Keep writing, Mr Raven!”
“What a rip roaring ride Rollover is. The action takes place between the rural charm of the New Forest and the rather grimy underbelly of late night Southampton, clearly territories that the author knows well. Raven employs a spare taut prose honed no doubt during his days as a newspaper journalist to create a fast paced story of love, murder, kidnap and betrayal. A genuine page turner of a thriller with an ending which brilliantly pulls together the strands of a tangled tale.”
