Michael Flynn is untouchable in a world of power, money, and violence. He fights for what he wants and he takes it, whatever the cost. He learns the rules of the Life from the best and when his mentor, legendary Face Patrick Costello, is taken out, no one questions that Michael Flynn is his natural successor. For Michael, loyalty - and crime - pay. Michael Flynn rises to heights beyond anything the criminal underworld has seen. He owns everyone and he rules his empire with an even but fierce hand. No one would dare challenge him. Then the unthinkable happens. Perhaps Michael Flynn is not so untouchable after all.

Gabby looked at the woman she had hated nearly all her life. Then she sat down on the ladder-backed chair, put her face into her bloodied hands and cried. To the outside world, Cynthia Tailor is a woman to envy; she has a devoted husband, a lovely home and two gorgeous children. But Cynthia is deeply unhappy with her lot; she has always craved the best things in life, and is determined to see that she gets them.

wow what a rubbish book! The first 24 chapters were mostly about how much she doesn't want her kids and how much she hates her husband..how many ways can you say the same thing Martina?? rest of the book..nothing really happens to write home about. I like this narrator in other books but in Martina s books it has to be Annie Aldington as she really makes it come alive . sorry Martina it's definitely not for me!

I found the first book to be boring and found my mind wandering alot. from the second book to the last 20 minutes was very good and I enjoyed it. The last 20 minutes I found extremely depressing and definitely not bedtime material hence my 3 stars.

Judith Jonson has been a widow for five years. At first, she hoped Dan would return, but her dream turned to a nightmare as the war ended, and she had to accept her beloved husband was never coming home. Then one day she sees a picture in the paper - the aftermath of a dramatic robbery in London's West End - and Judith can't believe her eyes. It's Dan, she'd stake her life on it - or rather his life, the traitor. Betrayed and desperate for answers, Judith begins a hunt for the man she thought she married. And in amongst the lowlifes of the East End's gangland underworld she finds more than she bargained for.

She trusted the man she loved. It was the most dangerous things she had ever done… A gripping story of gangs, drugs, girls and unbreakable bonds. Perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller. No one can touch Del Williams - the hardest gangster in Soho. He's got the monopoly on the drug deals and the girls - it'd be a mistake to underestimate him. The only person he'd take a bullet for is tough, beautiful Bunny Barker, mother of their daughter Star.
