Summary

In the sixties, Briony Cavanagh ran a string of the most notorious brothels in London. Only Briony knew what went on behind those doors, and she never opened her mouth - unless she stood to benefit. Only Briony knew the painful road she'd travelled to get there. From an impoverished childhood that ended with shocking betrayal, she was determined to be mistress of her own fate. But along with success came risk and danger. And the Goodnight Lady had her own secret place that was always shadowed by loss.

Hooked from the very beginning

I wasn't sure what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised, I was hooked from the very beginning. Martina Cole's description of The interracial relationship was gripping and emotional. I would say this is one of her best, including the exceptional narrating, you won't be able to stop listening.

One of the best yet

One of the best I’ve listened to so far.

Martinas books have a way of getting inside your head from start to finish it’s impossible not to listen.

Brilliant.
