Pay the Penance by Rob Ashman #Blog Tour #(Mechanic Trilogy Book 3) @RobAshmanAuthor @BloodhoundBook

Firstly I wish to thank Sarah Hardy of Bloodhound Books for inviting me to take part on this fabulous Blog Tour for the finial instalment of the Mechanic Trilogy PAY THE PENANCE by ROB ASHMAN


BOOK A stunning serial killer thriller from The Mechanic Trilogy

Murder. Corruption. Revenge. 

Lucas has been tracking a killer, known as Mechanic, when his world is shattered. Unable to continue his hunt for the murderer he is forced to rely on his friend and colleague Dick Harper. But Harper has a knack for not playing by the rules. And he doesn’t disappoint.

Meanwhile Detective Moran is trying to piece her life back together. The police stumble upon new evidence without grasping its significance and she must divert the investigation if she is to survive.

The police are closer to Mechanic than they realise which puts Moran right in the firing line.

Mechanic, as usual, has other plans and the consequences for Lucas and Harper are terrifying…

Pay The Penance can be read as a gripping stand alone or as part of the thrilling Mechanic Trilogy



This is one of those rare books that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on and yet I was dreading the day in equal measures because this is the end, the final book in a series that I loved. Now I have to say next that this book, this final one to end it all, is just bloody awesome from the first page to the last. This is one action packed, adrenaline fuelled beauty that I just didn’t know who I wanted to come out on top. Ok that may seem twisted but I really took to the Mechanic, don’t ask why because I am talking total psycho here, but I really sort of got behind this super cool killer that got job satisfaction in killing be it for money, pleasure or for someone to pay a penance for a past deed.

Lucas and Harper have a vested interest in hunting down and killing the Mechanic for more than a couple of reasons but primarily if they don’t then the Mechanic will hunt them down and take them out. Where the Mechanic has precision and skill these two have plod and the cheek to blackmail Detective Moran to try give them the edge by hindering the police investigation. Not really a fair match but most entertaining. Definitely a 9 out of 10 for effort for them where it was no effort at all for the Mechanic!

The Mechanic has a demon to face from the past in this book, a vulnerability that has been skimmed before that now has to be dealt with and even more shockingly a relationship, one that would be all lovey dovey if they were ‘normal’ (I know politically incorrect but really read the series and you will understand) instead they are two very twisted and messed up people in the head. Well what ever turns you on as the saying goes.

Rob Ashman must have poured every ounce of energy and emotion into these three books because it has taken all of mine just reading them and although I know all the ins and outs, who is who and the super hair raising ending, I will read this series again because it really is top notch.

I wish to thank Bloodhound books for providing an e-book to me which I have reviewed honestly.



Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.


Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.


It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.


When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.


Rob is delighted that all three books in the Mechanic Trilogy will be published with Bloodhound Books in 2017.


Those That Remain  –  22 June

In Your Name            –  13 July

Rob now writes full time and has recently completed his fourth novel titled Faceless.
