No Mercy by Martina Cole
My Own Copy – Hardback
Family always come first. Until now.
No more waiting, the new novel from the No. 1 bestselling phenomenon Martina Cole is here, and it’s pure Martina gold. No Mercy is a heart-stopping rollercoaster ride of a read that proves there really is only one 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…
My Review ~
BOOM! Martina Cole is BACK!!!!!!!!
Just as gritty, dark and gripping as the early novels I devoured one after the other whilst living in sunny Cyprus. I’ve been a fan of Martina Cole’s stayle since 2005, when heavily pregnant I found her books at the library. Before too long she was my new obsession and I read every copyh the library had.
The title is set between 2011 and 1980, it give an insight into the different ways in which gangland was run and IS run. The novel opens with the murders of gangster brother Jimmy & Christos Fernandez. Whomever is responsible has an X on their back…
I love the whole grit and realness that is written within a Martina Cole title. She certain isn’t going to waste time describing a pair of curtains or the countryside. She focuses on the characters and what is written, is deep, layered and eye-opening. The various family members are all introduced and before long you have a clear picture of how the family operates and who they answer to.
One thing is certain Diana Davis doesn’t miss a bloody trick.
There are affairs, mistresses and hookers. Violence revenge and instigation. There is murder and mayhem and that is what makes it such a cracking read.
The cast of characters is very diverse and it is brilliant to see a range of BAME/LGBT characters come alive on the page in this style of genre writing diversity can often be lost.
Absolutely CRACKING!!!! 5* 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
