    Story
    "Absolute Patronising Drivel"

    Honestly, if I could have avoided putting a star in, I would have. It was painful to listen to. The narrative was infantile, the accents amateurish and the plot senseless and purile. I have to ask myself a very embarrassing question "If it was that bad, why did you buy it"? Lack of time! Big attractive cover! I apologise, I have to live with that decision. At least I learned a lesson, and that's, give yourself more time when choosing what to listen too. If not, you'll be punished by ending up with a dirge of this nature.

    "Usual high standard"

    For those who are fans of Martina's style you'll love this, it's also one of her earlier works and more focused on the view from inside prison which is great-also great twist.

    "Loved it"

    Everything I expect in Martina Cole books.

    Strong woman, grit and no holds barred descriptive language.

    Would recommend again, now on to her next one.

    Story
    "Unpleasant and distasteful"

    I am inclined to agree with the reviewer who described this as patronising drivel, I find it hard to describe what I hated about it except that I found the narrator terrible and annoying, the storyline was also annoying, it is as though the characters were never exposed to real life before being plunged into this story especially Donna who appears to be some kind of simpleton. I rarely write bad reviews but in this instance I felt obliged to share, I feel that some people may like this book but it was not for me, I'll stick with Mo Hayder and Stephen Leather to name but a couple.

    "Interesting Jump"

    A typical Martina Cole novel. Repetitive in places, intriguing, but not a best seller.
    Overall an average listen, good narration.
