If youâre a fan of Martina Coleâs novels then try this debut novel from the widow of the eponymous East End gangster Reg Kray. I reckon this is an incredibly realistic portrayal of Londonâs underworld, truly frightening too. Martina Cole reigns supreme but Roberta Kray is hot on her heels. If you enjoy this title you might also like to read Roberta Kray's latest novel, The Pact.

If you like Roberta Kray you might also like to read books by Mandasue Heller, Lynda La Plante and Martina Cole.

Synopsis

The Debt by Roberta Kray

An anonymous phone call was all it took to alert the police to a body at The Palace nightclub. Now, eighteen years later, Johnny Frank is coming out of jail with only one thing on his mind – to wreak his revenge on Jim Buckley, the man who put him there.

Buckley has everything Johnny doesnât: a marriage, kids, a business, a future. Moving in on Buckleyâs life, Johnny starts to spread rumour and suspicion. Dividing husband and wife, father and son, he sets about destroying the family.

But a vicious murder and a kidnap soon force him back on to the streets of London. He would choose to disappear if it wasnât for Simone - Buckleyâs provocative daughter-in-law has got under his skin. With her husbandâs life hanging in the balance she is forced to team up with Johnny – a man she loathes. And once she enters Johnnyâs dangerous and unpredictable universe her life will never be the same again.
