Devastatingly powerful and utterly unforgettable, Martina Cole’s The Family will hook you in from the very first page, and keep you there through to the very last. As ever it is a truly nail-biting plot with characters that are very well drawn but be warned Martina Cole’s world is a tough one.



Synopsis

The Family by Martina Cole

The new novel from the phenomenal No. 1 bestseller. Devastatingly powerful and utterly unforgettable, THE FAMILY will hook you in from the very first page, and keep you there till the very last. Phillip Murphy is a family man. He worships his old mum; he takes care of his siblings who help run his business empire in Southend; he dotes on his two young sons who will one day take over the reins. And then there's his wife and saviour Christine, whom he loves with a vengeance. To Phillip Murphy, family is everything. Christine has always understood this about her husband, it was one of the things that first attracted her to him. But there is another side to Phillip, and it's a side he never wanted his wife to see. Though even if she did, could she do anything but stand by him? Because Phillip has rules, and he expects loyalty from his nearest and dearest. Once you're in the family, you're in it for life.


Reviews

'Cole is brilliant at portraying the good among the bad, and vice versa, so until the very end we never quite know who to trust. This is the very stuff that makes her so compelling'
Daily Mirror
