Family always comes first. Until now.
Get ready for the ultimate summer read with the explosive new novel from Sunday Times No.1 bestseller and 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) Martina Cole.
Diana Davis has been head of the family business since the death of her husband, an infamous bank robber. She's a woman in a man's world, but no one messes with her.
Her only son, Angus, is a natural born villain, but he needs to earn Diana's trust before she'll allow him into the business.
Once he's proved he has the brains to run their clubs in Marbella, he is given what he's always wanted. It's the beginning of a reign of terror that knows no bounds.
But Angus has a blind spot: his wife, Lorna, and their three kids, Angus Junior, Sean and Eilish. And as the next generation enters the business, Angus has a painful truth to learn. Even when it comes to family, he must show no mercy...

First part of the book was a bit boring last part of the book was much more enjoyable
Have read a lot of her books this one wasn’t one I enjoyed
I enjoyed the book but felt it was lacking in comparison with some of MC’s earlier novels. The storyline was ok and I didn’t expect the twist at the end but still I wasn’t as enthralled as I usually am.
If you’re a fan, read it. But nothing new here...
I’ve read all Martina Coles books and I’m a fan so couldn’t wait to read this one.
I wouldn’t say I was disappointed, more underwhelmed. The story and characters were fine if somewhat predictable but there wasn’t really a likeable one among them. I wasn’t sure who I was rooting for which made the finale a bit lacklustre. Still a fan but definitely not my favourite book of a brilliant author.
