  • Loved THIS!

    Oh I do love a bit of gritty, gangland crime and what an introduction to Marnie Riches for me! I know…I know…I am totally late to the party but I am thrilled to still have her other books to read! #DontJudgeMe . Totally loving the cover of this book too….if I cut my hair, jumped into a fountain of youth, had laser eye surgery and dropped a few stone…it could be me! Seriously though, great cover! Guess I better get on with my review! As the synopsis states, the book is set in Manchester and immediately the reader is immersed into the seedy underworld of organised crime where violence, desire, power/control- both having it and taking it back – revenge and survival wrap their fictional arms around you and pull you deep into the pages! This book has one of those punch-in-the-gut plot lines. You know the ones….you’re happily reading along, at a fast pace until #boom – you’re hit in the gut. So you dust yourself off, read a bit more and then #boom –where the hell did that come from? You know what I mean? It just keeps happening! There is drugs, violence, exploitation, “turf” wars – the perfect concoction to keep you hooked! There were LOADS of characters in this book who enhanced the story but five of them really stood out in my opinion. Paddy and Sheila O’Brien of course! This toxic pair really keep you on your toes and neither are what they seem! Secrets, violence and betrayal hang over this pair like a bad smell. Half the time I just wanted to knock their heads together! Conky was awesome! Tough guy on the outside but there was so many more layers which were cleverly revealed as the story unfolded. Leviticus Bell – well OMG – he is another one that dug his way under my skin and refused to leave. A cocky, no good, pain in the arse….with a heart…who knew!? Again, we have the same thread that was woven through the pages – no one is as they seem – are they good? are they bad? Are the both? There were plenty of bad guys but none made my skin crawl more than The Fishman – This is one guy you would not like to come across in a dark alley….or anywhere really! I thought the characters were well written and loved watching their development as I turned each page. Do I recommend this read? You bet your sweet arse I do! Lovers of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers, Mel Sherratt and Casey Kelleher will most definitely want to get their hands on this book; gritty, intense and a real page turner that will have you guessing right until the very end! Grab a copy of this fab book and I hope we see more of this style of writing from Marnie Riches in the future!

  • Good read

    Excellent page turner. Even the "bad characters" were shown as vulnerable.

  • Born Bad

    If I could have given more stars I would have. Wow what a great read its one of those books you can't put down brilliant. What an ending totally unexpected kept me guessing and racing to get to the final chapters. This is a must read for fans of Martina Cole and such. Loved it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
