Anna Smith - Blood Feud. #BloodFeud #Review by @Ilovereadinguk #Netgalley @annasmithauthor @QuercusBooks
They came for her family. Now she's coming for them. This nail-biting thriller introduces Glasgow's newest gangland mistress, Kerry Casey - a gripping read perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.
Kerry Casey thought she'd made a life away from the dirty dealings of her gangster family. Her father wanted to make them legit - her brother Mickey had other ideas, and now it's got him killed. When Mickey's funeral turns into a bloodbath at the hands of a group of anonymous shooters and Kerry's mother is killed in the crossfire, Kerry finds herself at the head of the Casey family, and desperate for revenge.
Running a crime empire is not a job she ever asked for, and not one she wants, but Kerry is determined to fulfil her father's wishes and make the Caseys go straight. First, though, she will find the men who murdered her mother, and she will take them down, no matter what it takes.
I really couldn't wait to get started with this book. I have read and loved all of Anna Smiths books. Loved everyone of them.
A sperb writing style that really does grab you into those pages, and keeps you wanting more right up to the end.
We are introduced to some great characters in this book. A mix of characters you'll either love or hate.
I have to admit I was a little sceptical when I realised this wasn't going to be a 'Rosie Gilmore book' I love the Gilmore series, and knowing this was something new had me nervous and exited.
Anna's style of writing is first class.
Kerry Casey is now the head of the Casey Empire. From Lawyer to criminal in the blink of an eye.
When everything goes tits up at Mickey Casey's (her brother) wake, Kerry's life is changed forever.
We have a whole mixture of criminal characters come together in this superbly written story.
Anna Smith certainly has this genre nailed. She is one of the best authors about. Nothing I can say about this book is going to do it the justice it so deserves.
This is certainly a must read and has made it to my must read books of 2018.
The really good news is that there is going to be a Blood Feud 2. It's available now for pre order.
Rosie Gilmour is hot on the trail of a ring of baby-sellers and people-traffickers. The problem is, her main suspect is a dead man. Or is he?
A money-laundering accountant disappears in Romania. The hitman hired to disappear him is found dead in a Glasgow flat. And the owner of the flat, the accountant's widow, claims she knows nothing about it.
Crime reporter Rosie Gilmour isn't convinced by Helen Lewis's innocent facade - she is convinced Helen was the one who ordered the hit on her husband, and she's going to prove it. But when she discovers that Helen's husband worked for a ring of gangsters selling babies from Romanian orphanages, her focus shifts. Now she has two sets of criminals to bring to justice - she'd better pray they don't catch up with her first.
A nail-biting thriller for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Dreda Say Mitchell and Jessie Keane
I have now caught up with this series of books, after recently doing a Rosie Binge.
I'm worried of repeating myself, but I really do like this series, I have enjoyed each and everyone. I will say (again) that these books really would be best enjoyed if read in order.
I love Anna's style of writing, she has a gift of dragging you into the story. Rosie now feels like a friend, albeit a fictional one. Have I just said that. I thought I'd stopped having imaginary friends years ago.
This story is no different to any other for Rosie, It's her story and she's going to get it and publish it at all costs. Often it does cost Rosie dearly, but that's what makes her such a likeable character.
Another brilliant, and interesting read from a very talented author.
