In her fourteenth gangland thriller Martina Cole is just as gritty and gripping as in her previous novels. This story takes us from the violent streets of the seventies through to the present day, following fourteen year old Danny’s journey after his father leaves and how he moves in to the East End underworld and the effect it has on him and those around him. Strong women characters we have come to love in Martina’s books are ever present and the hard hitting story lines make this a draw for both male and female readers alike.

If you like Martina Cole you might also like to read books by Lynda La Plante, Jake Arnott and Mandasue Heller.

Synopsis

Faces by Martina Cole

Just before Danny Cadogan’s fourteenth birthday, his father leaves. Having drunkenly run up a gambling debt he cannot pay, Big Dan Cadogan takes the easy way out. Leaving behind his wife and children to face the wrath of the men sent to collect the debt. Determined to protect his mother, brother and sister, something changes in Danny and, overnight, he turns into a young man set on making his way in a violent and dangerous world. He becomes a Face. Not just a Face, but the most feared Face in the Smoke. Out for all he can get. At any cost. But Danny’s ruthlessness on the streets of London doesn’t stop at his front door. He rules his wife, Mary, and his children, with an iron will – and his fists. But if Mary breaks her silence, it could shake Danny’s criminal empire; right to the very core. And for a Face at the top of his game, there’s only one way to go. Down. Because, after all, debts can be paid without money. Set in the heart of London's criminal gangland, from the seventies right up to the present day, FACES is gritty, gripping and utterly unforgettable.

About the Author

Martina Cole

Martina Cole is the acknowledged queen of crime drama with more than twenty novels to her name, of which over a dozen have been No.1 bestsellers.

Several of Martina's novels have been adapted for the screen, including The Take and The Runaway which were shown on Sky 1 to remarkable reviews. In addition, Two Women and The Graft have been adapted for the stage; both were highly acclaimed when performed at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, which also staged Dangerous Lady in 2012, celebrating twenty years since Martina's debut novel was published.

Martina Cole is a phenomenon. She continues to smash sales records with each of her books, which have sold thirteen million copies. In 2011 Martina surpassed the £50 million sales mark since records began and was the first British female novelist for adult audiences to achieve this - and she has spent more weeks in the No. 1 slot on the original fiction bestseller list than any other adult novelist. Her hard-hitting, uncompromising and haunting writing is in a genre all its own - no one writes like Martina.
