The battle is on…
When gang leader Paddy O’Brien is stabbed in his brother’s famous nightclub, Manchester’s criminal underworld is shaken to the core. Tensions are running high, and as the body count begins to grow, the O’Brien family must face a tough decision – sell their side of the city to the infamous Boddlington gang or stick it out and risk losing their king.
But war comes easy to the bad boys, and they won’t go down without a fight. So begins a fierce battle for the South Side, with the leading Manchester gangsters taking the law into their own hands – but only the strongest will survive…

Tensions are high, when Paddy O'Brien is stabbed in his brothers night club. It isn't long before Paddy decides its time for out, and his long Suffering wife is expected to go along with anything he says.
"you say jump, we say how high"
But things are never straight forward and there will be a few spanners thrown into the works through out the story.
An interesting read with a few twists you really didn't expect. It keeps engrossed and wanting more.
Some brilliant character throughout this book, some are more likeable than others, but certainly interesting.
I seem to have has a phase of reading books in and around Manchester and I find they really add to a story for me, as I can really visualise a lot of the places.
This book certainly kept my interest and I was surprised, ok more than surprised on the way it ended. It all seemed to come together brilliantly. It's a gritty read. It's certainly different from the last book I read by Marnie Riches and different in a very good way.
I will certainly be reading book 2 when that come out, It will be interesting to see where things go.
