What the Critics Say

''The novel's complex plot shoots along at a terrific rate, gathering momentum. But what puts flesh on the bones and raises Mitchell's writing above the run of gangland thrillers is its psychological level" (Independent)

"Mitchell outguns Martina Cole for pure, shocking East End gangster grit." (Mirror)

    Story
    "Interesting story, badly written"

    It was an interesting story with plenty of suspense. The characters were engaging, up-to a point. I really wanted to know what would happen and so I kept listening to the end. Maybe it's just a generation thing, but the way it was written really annoyed me. Too much street vernacular and the whole book really had neither depth nor subtlety.

    Story
    "On the whole a good read"
    Where does Hit Girls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On first listening to this, I had reservations as to whether I would like it. It's not my usual read but as the story progressed I found myself being lulled into the world of Jackie Jarvis, plenty of suspense and characters with enough depth to keep me interested.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    My only problem was that I wished I had read the previous books to this one as there were references to back story.


    What does Adjoa Andoh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The story is well read and gives the book the atmosphere required for a good listen.
