4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Phillip Murphy is a family man. He worships his old mum; he takes care of his siblings who help run his business empire; he dotes on his two young sons who will one day take over. And then there's his wife and saviour Christine, whom he loves with a vengeance.

To Phillip Murphy, family is everything. Christine has always understood this about her husband.

But there is another side to Phillip, and it's a side he never wanted his wife to see.

Though even if she did, could she do anything but stand by him? Because Phillip has rules, and he expects loyalty from his nearest and dearest.

Once you're in the family, you're in it for life.

First time I have ever read Martina Cole and WOW she did not let me down.This is like an Eastenders style storyline. I felt every emotion towards Christina Booth. One chapter i loved her the next i wanted to give her a shake. Gripping story about gangland families. The loyalty they share towards one and other. I have already purchased another Martina Cole book. She has earned a new fan.

This was my first book from this author and I loved it. A gripping story that pulled me in from the start through to the end. For me if a book has me looking forward to the next time I can pick it up to continue reading is a winner. I have recommended it to others.
