A great read for anyone who thrives on suspense!
Had me hooked from the start to finish.
Sadly, the audio quality of this book was very poor with a range of audible volumes.... I was frustrated by having to keep altering the volume on my device to be able to hear adequately! At first I thought it may have been the narrator, but her volume and tone did not change, so it must have happened during the recording.
Disappointing for audible but still a great book.

A gripping thriller that will shock you to the core. Controlled all her life by her religious mother, 15-year-old Kelly Raven commits the ultimate sin. She soon discovers that running away to the cold, frightening streets of London is less harsh than her previous life. A drug dealer, two fraudsters, and a prostitute are her new family now, and she becomes the woman she was destined to be. Little does she know that Eddie Raven is coming for her, but she is no sweet four-year-old child, and he is certainly no doting father.

I felt the beginning of the book was very slow and struggled to keep going with it. I can’t express enough how grateful I am that I persevered.... nothing could have prepared me for the incredible story to follow that caused every possible emotion to surge!! Clever, emotional and inspiring in a strange and unforeseeable way.
