Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to the publishers for a review copy of this book.
This was certainly my sort of book. I enjoyed it right from the beginning. And can not wait to see what Susan Wilkins does next. I believe there is going to be a sequel to this book, and by god I can not wait.
A fantastic read. And I believe fans of authors Like Martina Cole, Casey Kelleher, Helen black, Jessie Keane and on and on (to name just a few) would really enjoy this book. As a very keen reader, I love books in this Genre, and it still amazes me when we get a new author who can deliver the story as good as, if not better than some of the leading authors in this category.
#police #lawyer’s #gangster’s #prison #drugs #murder. What more can you ask for in a book. Once I started this I really didn’t want to put it down, and I found the more I read, the more I wanted to carry on reading. And although it was a fantastic read and I really needed to get to the end, once I was near the end, I wanted to put the book down so that I didn’t finish it. And OH MY GOD What an ending.
We are introduced to the wonderful (ok Not so wonderful) Phelps family.
Joey the up and coming wanna be gangster, has taken over the family firm. After Dad is no longer in a position to run it. Joey seems to be a bit of a loose cannon, and you can’t help liking him and hating him at the same time. Along with his side kick Ash, Joey seems to just be able to find trouble, and being so badly wanted by the police you would think he would try staying out of it. (Although that would have been boring lol)
His sister Karen is just released from Prison after serving 6 years of her 12 year sentence. Karen wants nothing to do with the family business, and is determined to continue her ART studies that she started whilst in prison; she wants to enrol into collage and be left to get on with things. But being part of the Phelps family this might not be the plan that Big brother has for her. Kaz was really likeable throughout the book. At times she seemed a very confused young lady, not knowing what she wanted or how to go about it. Her head was very mixed up at times, but I think that is understandable. Maybe getting a little to close to her Lawyer. And not coping to well with being followed by a not so undercover, undercover cop. But the police want this family off the streets, and it seems they will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Karen’s younger sister has not done to well for herself whilst Karen has been in Prison, and Karen is not happy that Joey hasn’t taken care of her.
When Cousin Sean is also released from Prison, he thinks its only right that he takes over as the head of the family business. But is Joey about to stand back and let him, or has Joey got used to being the main man and doesn’t want Sean by his side. One thing is for sure. Things are going to get messy. Who can survive and come out the other end. Well you need to read it and find out.
A must read..... 5/5
This book will certainly be in *one of my best books read this year* group. Come on Susan you now have a fan club eagerly awaiting your next book, and we are praying you can deliver something just as good if not better.
