This is the 1st book in a trilogy, I have listened to them all in order-Superb narration by Annie Aldington and a fast paced story set in the 80's in the East of London about a likeable gangster family. Gritty reading, excellent story. I am now hooked on Kimberly Chambers and have begun her second trilogy.
Great for Martina Cole fans. The first in this series and I cannot wait to go to the second one. There are a lot of characters in the book but once you get to know them you are in for a fantastic ride trust me you will want to get to the end. I have never wanted so much for justice to be meted out.. Again another terrific read from Annie Aldington. Thank you Annie
Is a s hook after the first few pages, great plot with strong characters. the story was made even better by the narration of Annie Aldington. Loved all of the characters can't wait to start the next book
Loved this book from the first minute & couldn't stop listening.
Never heard of the author before but being a Martina Cole fan it was recommended. Although a very similar style with very similar characters would say the humour in this book actually surpassed my expectations. There are certainly I gritty & gruesome bits bit I am definitely a fan of Kimberly Chambers & look forward to reading her next book. Highly recommend!
the best !!
donald and mary and the plot
makes me feel like i know these people personally
yes yes yes
the first in a series of the butler family saga .... a must read
I loved this book. It was funny, gritty and kept me wanting more. I am about to start Payback. I think that Annie Aldington did an amazing job in the narration.
"The ending fell flat"
It was mostly enjoyable, some parts were too predictable.
No, Not good enough for someone to spend the money on.
No. I think the chance was lost with the ending coming up so short. It seemed like something was building and then poof, done.
"rather have an arm broken"
couldn't even listen to 20 min.
just this author
not sure really
not for sale would have been real nice
