Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of A Lesser Evil by Lesley Pearse.

She defied her parents to marry for love....

Following her heart, Fifi moves with Dan to London, where they rent a seedy flat in Dale Street, Kennington. Though Fifi must now become acquainted with squalor, she is soon drawn into the goings-on behind the shabby front doors of her new neighbours. 

But it is the Muckles, at number 11, who are the street's focus. Rumours of criminal depravity and shocking behaviour are rife. So when Fifi steps in to help their youngest child, she risks the wrath of this frightening family. Suddenly, not only her marriage and her family but the lives of all the inhabitants of Dale Street are at the mercy of the immoral Muckles....

Well read and engaging story

This was well read and engaging. The character mostly believeable but little intrigue. It's a straight forward story which I would recommend.

disappointed

I am an avid reader of Lesley Pearce. although the last two books have not been on the same level as previous books such as "belle" etc. what has happened. Lesley seems to have gone from lovely stories to child rape all in two books? nit my type of reading Lesley. perhaps you could go back to the books we all know and love! Narrated as always brilliantly by Annie Arlington.

A Lesser Evil

Every book I finish of Lesley's books, makes me just want to start the next one. This was a favourite, loved the story, the characters were so alive and the reading was excellent.
