The indisputable queen of the violent, gritty, gangland thriller which, although concentrates on the woman’s view of this seedy underworld, I wholeheartedly recommend her to the male reader too. Just try her, she’s got something special.
Comparison: Sheila Quigley, Mandasue Heller, Jake Arnott.
Similar this month: None, but try Margaret Murphy or Lynda La Plante.
In her latest novel, Martina tells the story of Nick Leary - devoted father, loyal friend and shrewd businessman - and what happens when a masked intruder breaks into his home.... In her unique style, Martina Cole holds up a mirror to our society, writing about tough and often harrowing subjects in a brutally honest and compassionate way. Her characters are injected with sympathy and warmth and there is an honesty in her books that speaks to millions of people.
