*****This review is for Mature Readers Only...no kiddies.*****

”Some girls got all the beauty, all the boobs, the ass and all the sweet blue eyes and can play all the notes and even with all that they just do not make any music at all. Other girls got bodies like planks or like balloons and make heaven music like the gods themselves. It’s just a thing. It can’t be learned. And faking is obvious. Same with an instrument. The most beautiful instrument ever invented is the saxophone. It is golden po

Recommends it for: Lovers of violent thrillers & blues music. Kill Bill fans.
WARNING! This chick will shoot your kneecaps off as soon as look at you.

Phew!
An internet buzz about this novel grabbed my attention, so I had to see what all the fuss was about, starting with a piquant amuse-bouche, titled 'Four Cornered' by the same author.

Chastity, 50% of two psychotic Scissor Sisters (Charity and Chastity), carves a murderous route through the story, in a way reminiscent to that of an anti-heroine in a Tarantino flick.
"Everyone lies, everyone dies. Got that?" says our eponym

A dark, gritty thriller full of contradictions.

JJ Stoner, ex-military, ex-intelligence, sometime mercenary, is tasked with overseeing a female assassin’s latest contract when unknown players interject themselves with an agenda of their own. Stoner meanwhile is at a midpoint in his life and is reflecting on the path that has led him to this point, questioning whether he wishes to continue walking along it, and perhaps using the feminine killer, Chastity, as a mirror to reveal some insight into hi

I read A Last Act of Charity and came back for more. I wanted to read Killing Sisters book 2 The Corruption of Chastity as I find Frank Westworth a very clever talented writer. At some point I would like to read more books by Frank Westworh as I find them easy to get into.

"Frank Westworth has written a character here that is instantly likeable. Let’s make no bones about it, in many respects he is the baddie in the books. He is a trained killer who is out for hire and seems to have absolutely no remorse or even a flicker of emotion in his psyche when it comes to his work. He will kill and not lose one seconds sleep over it. But he’s brilliant. I cannot emphasise enough how much I like this character. In many ways I wish Frank Westworth had been born fifty years ea ...more

Hell. I've just finished this and feel as if I've been mugged. I certainly have been massively, densely, non-stop and entirely thoroughly entertained, and the ending ... well, no spoilers but I'm torn between reaching out and picking up book 3 so as to immediately begin to find out what happens next and sitting on my hands until the urge passes and I'm able to go read something else, savouring the knowledge I've still that one awaiting me.

Which I'll more likely do.

But it isn't just the pace of

Published in 2015 by The Book Guild, The Corruption of Chastity comes with a health warning.  Not for readers under 18 or those adverse to a little bit of violence (quite a lot of violence).  The reader should also be aware that this is book two in the Killing Sisters trilogy featuring JJ Stoner.  The blurb assures you that you can dive straight in with book two and you don't need to have read any other books in the series.  However, I disagree with this statement.  I disagree quite strongly.  I ...more

Nasty Noir: Stakes Raised in 'The Corruption of Chastity'

Unlike most sequels, 'The Corruption of Chastity' doesn't disappoint. I'd go as far as saying that the energy and zaniness which made 'A Last Act of Charity' a thrill to read enter a new dimension with 'Chastity'.

Story-wise, the characters I very much enjoyed in the first book continue to surprise you as author Frank Westworth gives them additional psychological substance and emotional development. The rollercoaster experience I felt with

I liked the character of Chastity and JJ Stoner.

To begin at the end: when you approach the final chapters of this intricate, entangled and absorbing philosophical investigation, it’s best to batten down the hatches and settle in for the long haul. You’ll reach a point where JJ Stoner, the semi-retired ex-soldier and almost-ex-assassin (but not quite: killing people is a habit which dies hard) appears to have most everything that’s still alive and squealing firmly under control. The dead guys are definitely not a problem. Stoner’s seductive fe ...more

At first I didn't really enjoy the writing style - it took me a few chapters to get used to the short, often repetitive, punchy sentence structure. I kept with it, and I'm glad I did, as it grew on me - and to be honest, it matched the characters and the action-driven storyline, adding an almost surreal feeling to the atmosphere. It's very descriptive, very vivid, with every word in it's place for a reason, which really makes it quite hard-hitting.

The storyline is fairly simple, Chastity, a fema

I simply love this author!

This is the second book in the JJ Stoner/Killing Sisters series of which I am very strongly acquainted. Chastity is one half of the psychotic Killing Sisters, the other being Charity and she is a stone-cold assassin who deploys all manner of grisly ways for her targets to meet their maker. This excellent book tells the story of when Chastity meets JJ Stoner, himself a hired contract killer, and depicts very violent scenes amongst a very explicit lust (not love) story!

Well, it seems like Frank is starting to hit his stride with the series. Excepting a few ,Penthouse Forum' moments, this was very enjoyable read.

I've put off writing this one for far too long, mostly because I'm torn and I'm not sure what to say.

First, this is the second in a series and I spent a little too long at the beginning trying to get my bearings. I got there with a little work, but the new reader has to wade through a lot to suss out the events of Book One. This is not necessarily a bad thing -- just a warning for others new to the series.

Frank Westworth shares several characteristics with his literary anti-hero, JJ Stoner: they both play mean blues guitar and ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Unlike Stoner, Frank hasn't deliberately killed anyone. Instead, Frank edits a monthly classic motorcycle magazine (see RealClassic.co.uk) and has written extensively for the UK motoring press.
