If you can stomach the language and have a penchant for the dark underbelly of the criminal world then this roller-coaster read is for you. Shockingly brutal, with a series of vicious twists and turns, Martina’s latest book combines a heavy dose of dysfunctional family drama with seedy corruption and deadly revenge, which some might find hard to swallow. Martina Cole writes in a no-holds barred style which will both shock and thrill.

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

Synopsis

Revenge by Martina Cole

Thrilling. Compulsive. Dangerous. REVENGE is the brand new novel from the phenomenal No. 1 bestselling author Martina Cole. BE SURE YOUR SINS WILL FIND YOU OUT. Michael Flynn is untouchable in a world of power, money and violence. He fights for what he wants and he takes it, whatever the cost. He learns the rules of the Life from the best and when his mentor, legendary Face Patrick Costello, is taken out, no one questions that Michael Flynn is his natural successor. For Michael, loyalty - and crime - pay. Michael rises to heights beyond anything the criminal underworld has seen. He owns everyone and he rules his empire with an even but fierce hand. No one would dare challenge him. Then the unthinkable happens. Perhaps Michael Flynn is not so untouchable after all, and he must learn that...WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE CAN BE NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

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.
