While crime boss Harry Jarvis has been languishing in jail, the Collins brothers have been steadily taking over his crime operation. Life has certainly moved on since Harry went inside. Unusual relationships have blossomed. The up and coming Collins family know Harry's time as top dog is all but over; his wife loves another man and his sons are plastic gangsters.
But when he gets out Harry has other ideas and begins a campaign to destroy his rivals by taking the Collins' lucrative cannabis trade by force setting the two families on an inevitable collision course.
Karen Woods returns to the crime ridden streets of North Manchester to produce a gripping, compulsive tale of greed and revenge.
Some of the later books, although are very good reads have a rushed feel to them. Karen writes about what she knows, and this always adds to the authenticity of the book. It helps make them believable because you know somewhere out there this is happening to some family on some estate somewhere.
I also enjoy the fact that the books are based in and around Manchester, and I find knowing the areas the books are set in really helps me visualise things better when reading them.
I did feel in this book that things were repeated a number of times, but once you get past this it really is a good story line.
While Harry has been inside, things have changed on the outside, and he's hoping once he is out he will become the face about town again.
But most of all his family have changed, and family being important to Harry he's going to have a job on his hands getting things back on track.
The book highlights the dangers of drug use, and what it can do to a person and a family. Once you are hooked Is there ever any going back.
I have bought each of Karen's books as they have come out, and I'm suddenly playing catch up, as Karen releases more books by back log has gotten bigger, but I plan to put that right.
