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.

With her husbandâs life hanging in the balance she is forced to team up with Johnny â€“ a man she loathes. And once she enters Johnnyâs dangerous and unpredictable universe her life will never be the same again.
