Summary

Watch your back. Everyone else will be.

There's a new queen ruling the streets of Manchester....

In the aftermath of her husband's death, Sheila O'Brien is in charge of the city, and for once, she's doing things her way.

But she hasn't reckoned with the fearsome Nigel Bancroft, a threat from Birmingham who is determined to assert his territory.

As terror and conspiracy begin to reign, Sheila is determined to keep control of the empire she has won - even if she has to die trying....

Critic reviews

"Gritty and gripping." (Kimberley Chambers, Sunday Times number one best seller)
"Marnie Riches is already a leading light in the field of Mancunian noir. Born Bad vividly covers all aspects of her city, from its rundown backstreets and grime-covered civic buildings to its rich musical legacy...It's impressive." ( The Guardian)
"Pacy, poignant, funny and violent, it grabs you by the hand and drags you down the mean streets of Manchester with such verve and authenticity that you can almost smell the rain and blood as you turn the pages. Any fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers will be adding Marnie Riches to their 'must buy' list. Born Bad is a belter." (Simon Toyne, international best-selling author of the Sanctus trilogy)

Couldn't finish this

I couldn't finish this book

I live in the area where this book is set but the narrator's strangled attempts at the regional accents where painful on the ear.

Pity, the plot may be ok but I'll never know
