The publisher created a new category with the publication of this novel, that of ‘gangster saga’, and it’s not far off the mark. A gangland 60’s saga set in Gosport with a strong heroine and some memorable characters. It’s got heart, violence, sex and an underground current which is very atmospheric. Evocative and gritty, it’s the beginning of a series that continues in the follow up, Broken Bodies.

'As good as Martina Cole and Jessie Keane' Amazon review Things have gone from bad to worse for Daisy Lane. When husband Kenny is banged up for robbery, she is left to run the family cafe with his brother Eddie. Hard man Eddie is a handsome man, but the price of a brutal childhood was a vicious streak that leads him to commit acts of terrifying violence just to get his way. And with brother Kenny out of the picture, Eddie makes his move on a villain even harder and more territorial than he is. But for all his bravado, Eddie's got an Achilles heel: Daisy Lane. And Daisy soon learns that it's not just territory Eddie's after . . . If you like books by Jessie Keane, Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole, you'll love Trust Nobody: the first novel in the Daisy Lane thriller series.
