Martina does it again with another wonderful, gritty tale of violent men, dirty deeds, “family” and London’s East End gangland. It stars Sharon Conway through two marriages and eventually off into what could easily become a sequel. In a smartly paced story with believable characters and a watertight plot, no ends are left untied and not a sentence is wasted. Martina really is the queen of this genre. Highly recommended. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
