Summary

The enemy is close to home in The Manor, a gripping gangland thriller from the top-five best seller Jessie Keane. 

Charlie Stone and Terry Barton have been blood brothers since the cradle. They grew up in the East End skimming along the bottom of the underworld until Charlie takes over the manor from the local mob and a twist of fate puts him and his best mate on the road to the high life.

When Charlie and Terry both marry and have kids, everything is set. Both families have everything they ever wanted. However, things start to turn sour between the families when Charlie’s adopted son, Harlan, starts to cause trouble.

It soon becomes clear that Harlan doesn’t want to be number one son, he wants to be number one full stop and he wants Terry’s daughter, Belle Barton, by his side.

As the feud caused by Harlan spirals out of control, it is left to Belle to pick up the pieces. Is she strong enough to take on Harlan Stone? Has she got what it takes to rule the manor?

Quite gripping in places, not bad.

First time I managed to listen the entirety of a Jessie Keane book as I have lost interest in the past. But found this one entertaining.

Top author does another 5⭐️ read/listen

Have read all Jessie Keane books, and am so happy that the standards never drop, unlike many crime/thriller authors often do.
Look forward to her next release!!
Am hooked from start to finish
