LoveReading View on The Take

A 2012 World Book Night selection.

Tough ladies dominate Martina’s gangland thrillers, ladies strong enough to stand up to violent men in a shady world …. most of the time. This is Martina’s twelfth East End, hard-hitting novel of grit, blood and passion. She writes in an easy flowing, addictive style that draws you in to the criminal underworld right from the start. Light reading but tough material.

The Take Synopsis

Freddie Jackson thinks he owns the underworld when he gets out of prison. He's done his time, made the right connections, and now he's ready to use them. His wife Jackie just wants her husband home, but she's forgotten the rows, the violence, and the girls Freddie can't leave alone. Bitter, resentful, and increasingly unstable, Jackie watches her life crumble while her little sister Maggie's star rises. In love with Freddie's cousin Jimmy, Maggie is determined not to end up like her sister. Families should stick together, but behind closed doors, jealousy and betrayal can fester until everyone's life is infected. And for the Jacksons, loyalty cannot win out. Because in their world you can trust no one. In their world everyone is on the take.
