thoroughly enjoyed this.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Gripping storyline as ever from Martina Cole. The Ryans are one hell of a family and in this Maura has her hands full keeping her brother and Mother under control! The narrator was excellent.

Brilliant.

Good story made even better by Annie aldington. I actually think it should be illegal to let anybody else read this type of genre. She brings all the characters to life. I’m always very skeptical when buying an east end crime novel when her name isn’t on it!

Great story poor narration

The story and characters are so brilliant that it's such a shame that the narrator didn't pull it off at all
It almost made me stop listening in the early chapters but I persevered because the story was brilliant
