'A great alternative to Martina Cole' - Amazon review
A WIDOW RETURNS HOME INTENT ON REVENGE . . .
Daisy Lane is back home after a short spell abroad, having lost both her husband Kenny and her lover Eddie to violent deaths.
But in the months away from home Daisy has not been idle. Not only has she given birth to a baby boy, she's also been plotting her revenge on Roy Kemp, the man who killed her lover.
Roy's dealings are not confined to London - his reach extends south, right down to the coast. And as well as murdering Daisy's man, is he also behind the recent slaying of prostitutes?
The man responsible for finding out is policeman DS Vinnie Endersby, pulled back to Gosport from London. But is he there to investigate the grisly crimes, or to get closer to Daisy?
If you like crime thrillers by Jessie Keane, Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole, you'll love Broken Bodies, the second novel in the Daisy Lane thriller series.

Set in mid-1960s Britain, Hampson's overly complicated follow-up to Trust Nobody begins with an anonymous woman's cold-blooded murder after sex. In the main story line, Daisy Lane has returned to her hometown of Gosport, still reeling from the violent deaths in Trust Nobody of her husband, Kenny, murdered by a fellow con in prison, and her lover, Eddie, Kenny's older brother. Daisy, who's recently given birth to Eddie's son, is determined to bring down Eddie's killer, Roy Kemp, a notorious London thug who runs with the Kray twins, real-life criminals who terrorized the East End in the 1950s and '60s. Hampson muddies the narrative with confusing side plots, one of which involves the dead woman in the opening.Those interested in the gritty underside of London during this period might look instead to The Lost and other crime novels by Roberta Kray, the wife of one of the Kray twins.
