The Life by Martina Cole

I have to say that I adore such a gritty and hard hitting book. To say there is no honour among thieves is a complete understatement where this book is concerned.

For the Bailey’s all that matters to any of them is family and staying at the top of their criminal enterprise. To stay at the top you have to play by your own set of rules, but not everyone seems to agree.

Some people are jealous of what everyone else has and will stop at nothing to gain what they think they are owed out of life. That includes stabbing everyone in the back if necessary, including family! 

As alway with Cole, this book contains scenes of graphic violence and a fair bit of swearing. I really enjoyed the book and I think avid readers of hard hitting crime will love it too!!
