The Trap by Kimberley Chambers
  

Lovereading view...

The Butler family rule the East End and Queenie, by her very name, rules the Butler family. She has three sons, Vinny and Roy, inseparable, and a younger fellow, Michael, whom you grow fonder of as the book progresses … but they are all a bad lot. They are all pretty ruthless gangsters but fear not, you’ll end up loving them, as Queenie does. Well, not necessarily Vinny. There is lots to tell but I’m not revealing any of it. Just read this. It’s great. You are left on a high with more questions than answers but book two, Payback, comes in hardback at the same time.

If you like Kimberley Chambers you might also like to read books by Martina Cole, Mandasue Heller and dreda say mitchell.

Synopsis

The Trap by Kimberley Chambers

The heir to Martina Cole's crown with a story of murder, the underworld, violence and treachery. The Butlers are the kings of the East End. Vinny and Roy Butler are the apple of their mum's eye and although Queenie knows they can play dirty, when it comes to family they look after business and make her proud. Nothing and no one can bring the Butler's down. But Vinny seems to have crossed the wrong person and his cards are marked. And with the brothers joined at the hip, Roy may just be in the firing line too...One bloody night sets Vinny on the path of desperate vengeance, but will the Butlers emerge stronger than ever, or is the East End code of honour as good as dead?

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.
