LoveReading View on The Take

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

Martina tells it like it really is, and her unique, honest and compassionate style shines through in her latest novel. Jackie Jackson is preparing a party to welcome home her husband Freddie. Everyone is gathered at the party, including her sister Maggie. But after six years in prison, Freddie thinks he is the Essex equivalent to the Godfather. And he’s going to make sure everyone knows it.
