When June’s publisher first gave me a taster of her first novel, Trust Nobody I was blown away by what I read. Something that was original and different from other fiction around. So original in fact that the publisher has created a new genre of the ‘Gangster saga’ for it to fit into. And, what an apt name for it. Broken Bodies is her second novel, is no less accomplished and as with her first novel features the gutsy Daisy who wants payback on a death in the first book. If you’ve not read June’s first novel, then imagine a cross between the tough urban world of a Martina Cole novel coupled with the warmth of a Catherine Cookson. That’s what you get with a June Hampson novel. You’ll love it.

Synopsis

Broken Bodies by June Hampson

Daisy Lane returns to her home town of Gosport after a spell abroad. She's been getting over the bad times, having lost both her husband Kenny and her lover Eddie to violent deaths. Eddie was viciously murdered by London gangster Roy Kemp. But in the months away from home Daisy has not been idle - she's given birth to a baby boy, Eddie's son, and she's been plotting her revenge on Roy Kemp. Now she's ready to carry out her plans. But is it possible for a vulnerable woman to take on a man like Roy Kemp and not be badly hurt?

Roy's dealings are not confined to London; his reach extends south, right down to the coast. Could he be the man behind the recent slaying of prostitutes? And is the killer of these women also responsible for the two badly abused bodies of young boys that have been found on waste ground in Gosport?

Meanwhile Daisy's best friend Vera has given up the life of the streets to run a massage parlour, and policeman DS Vinnie Endersby, on the trail of the Krays in London, finds himself pulled back to Gosport by his powerful attraction to Daisy.

Gritty, violent, sexy and completely unputdownable, BROKEN BODIES is a stunning follow up to TRUST NOBODY.
