Review by tina1969
Story about a widow who gets caught up in a kidnapping of a London underground's villain's daughter. OK thriller with a twist at the end. This book for me however was not grity enough for where it is set. I have two main critisms, the first being the swearing. Whether you love it or hate it people swear. In the enviroment this book has been set there would have been a lot more swearing than what is in the book. This does not affect the story line but in real life there woulld have been more. ( Am i been too Picky ?)The other is that the author was married to Reggie Kray and has gained a lot of knowledge about the ganster east end of London, so I think a lot more of this knowledge could have been used in the book, agian am I being too picky ? Would like to have seen a romance between Jo and Miller. Still an OK read in the vain of Martina Cole but not quite as good.
