Woohoo #bookjunkies! Another cracking review by my ‘lil awesome possum, Claire Knight. This is a short story by- Simon Maltman called Riot Score!
Set on the streets of Belfast where armed riot police are the norm, Simon Maltman has written his story of a heist and the consequences.

This is a new e-book that mixes a noir crime story with new original street photography. The photographs were taken during a riot in Belfast and the noir story intersects with it.
Claire’s Rating: 3.5/5
Simon Maltland’s Riot Score is a short story about the hours after a major heist set against the backdrop of the city of Belfast in turmoil. Photos are interspersed in the 18 pages of story to portray some of the actual sights of a city divided by loyalties and belief.
I’ve said it before when I’ve read short stories, I’m amazed how a writer can cram so much into such a short space of narrative. You hit the ground running and it’s a sprint finish.
The photos taken by Claire Chandler are raw and give a visual insight into what life is like in a riotous Northern Ireland.
The one issue I had with this ebook is the font the author has chosen to use. I personally felt it was difficult to read on a kindle. However the look does fit with the theme of the story.
I’d like to thank the author for asking me to read and honestly review this ebook.
