Publisher's Summary

When you've lost everything, you'll do anything to survive.

Saskia Frost's world is blown apart when her dad dies. Without any family, she's on her own now and up to her eyeballs in her father's debts. He owed a lot of money to some very dangerous men - Joshua and Vincent Harper. Before long, aspiring ballerina Saskia finds herself lap-dancing in a London club to survive. A club run by the infamous Harper brothers. Saskia is now their property and they're going to make her pay every penny back.

Teenager Lena Cona has fled a cruel and controlling marriage. She arrives in England with her newborn daughter, desperately relying on strangers for help. But she soon learns that not everyone can be trusted as she finds herself caught in the clutches of Colin Jefferies, a twisted individual obsessed by his own sinister secrets. As the sickening truth is revealed, Lena is forced to fight for her life - and her baby's.

When their worlds collide, Lena and Saskia form an unlikely friendship. But with the terrifying Harper brothers on their tail, as well as Lena's vengeful and violent husband, can they escape with their lives?

    "A gritty, no nonsense story that holds you in its vice like grip."

    This book is incredible. From beginning to end, every sentence will have you in its vice like grip.
    No holds barred storytelling at its best, certainly not for the faint hearted but definitely for lovers of Martina Cole.
    Thoroughly and highly recommended with clever narration by Alison Campbell, whose talent makes each loveable and despicable character come to life.

    "And the award goes to.............."
    What made the experience of listening to The Taken the most enjoyable?

    This is not the kind of book i ususually read, however i am so glad i did!!! not only was the stor yline fantastic, the highlight for me was the narration by Alison Campbell, absolutely top notch, the accents were awesome and she really made you feel for all of the characters


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Taken?

    There is not one moment that stands out because it was an overall fantastic listen! however if i had to say, it would be the character of Lena, my heart went out to her all the way through the book


    Which character – as performed by Alison Campbell – was your favourite?

    I have to say, i loved Misty, and i think this is because of Alisons narration, she really bought the character to life, he accents were spot on and Misty made me smile


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes!!! and i nearly did!! i finished it in a day & half!! i could not put it down¬


    Any additional comments?

    fantastic listen, superb plot, believable characters and really made you think of the awful things people in this world have to go through! Bravo Casey Kellaher.

    "wow another great book and hard hitting storey"

    First of all i must say how much i enjoyed listening to this book who was narrated by Alison Campbell she played the characters brilliantly and all the accents where spot on a very easy listen. (i'm really fussy and sometime find it hard to enjoy the book if the narrator isn't good)

    The book itself was brilliant too, its a hard hitting storey with lots of different characters each one with there part to play, all the characters came together in a fantastic storey with lots of twist and turns along the way, this is a brilliant read it literately had me hooked from start finish only bad thing is that i have finished it already and now have to wait for the next one from this author.
