Summary

Two childhood friends....

Best friends Tommy Boyle and Scratch always had each other's backs. Dragged up in care and cruelly betrayed by everyone they trusted, they made a pact to fight their way out of the gutter together.

Two sides of the law....

Old loyalties die hard on the streets of London. Tommy throws his lot in with the notorious Darling family even if it means leaving Scratch to the wolves. She's destined for a different path, reinventing herself as copper Kim Regan.

One deadly showdown....

Now they're on opposite sides of the law. Running Operation Sting, Kim will rip the heart out of the Darlings' empire, and only her old pal Tommy stands in her way.

As gritty and dangerous as the London streets in which it's set, this is number one best seller Kimberley Chambers at her best. Get ready for a shocking listen with a sting in the tail....

A dismal waste of time.

One of the very worst books I have listened to in my many years using audible. Admittedly, I wanted something fairly 'light' but this floated out the window and was away with the faeries. I come from the rougher parts of London and this was such a ridiculous rendering of the voices and attitudes of real villains and people as to be truly risible. I am amazed at the good ratings this book has had which is why I bought it in the first place.

Another classic from Kimberley Chambers

A compelling listen from start to finish narrated beautifully as usual by Annie Aldington. Chambers delivers every time and perfectly captures the heartfelt anguish of these complex and troubled characters. Best in class by far.

loved it

Great author, she makes the characters so multi faceted, you know you should hate the main character but you just can't because you've got inside his head. Great writing
