Martina Cole’s twenty-third East End thriller is as raw and involved as one has come to expect. With huge family betrayals and some very nasty goings-on indeed. It fair pounds along leaving you breathless and probably shattered. We are introduced to the O’Hara family where rising star, Aiden, has an affair with an older madam, Jade, who has his child, Aiden Junior. Jade is the real power behind the throne and watches out for both Aidens. Naturally the Columbian drug network and its lucrative control is a prize worth fighting over … and fights they certainly are. It is when brother is pitched against brother that it all gets very bitter and exciting. Every girl seems to get pregnant out of wedlock which also adds to the rising tension. Wow, this woman is good, her characters sadly believable with everything neatly tied together at the end. Highly recommended. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
November 2016 Book of the Month.
Betrayal by Martina Cole
Betrayal is the twenty-third novel from Sunday Times No.1 bestseller, Martina Cole, author of DANGEROUS LADY, THE TAKE, GET EVEN and many more. The 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) and the biggest selling female crime writer in the UK, Martina's unique, powerful storytelling will appeal to fans of Karin Slaughter and Patricia Cornwell. Survival. It's all down to who you trust. Aiden O'Hara has been head of the family since he was kid, and he's going to keep it that way. Jade Dixon is the one who watches his back. Mother of his son. The one who makes him invincible. But Jade's been in the game a lot longer than Aiden. She knows no one's indestructible. And when you're at the top, that's when you've got to watch the hardest. Especially the ones closest to you ...
