The Life : A dark suspense thriller of crime and corruption Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


When it's in your blood, there's no other way. THE LIFE by the 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) and Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Martina Cole is an unflinching novel that exposes a world that many would rather ignore... The Baileys are born into the Life. Brothers Daniel and Peter rule London's East End with threats and violence.

Only a fool would cross them, but there are always those in the shadows who will try. And when their enemies strike, every Bailey pays the price.

But none more so than Daniel's only daughter, Tania.

The Life is in her blood, and now it's her weapon for revenge. For more novels that will take you deep into the dark and dangerous criminal underworld, check out Martina Cole's THE GRAFT, THE BUSINESS and REVENGE
