Samui Times The Life Maria ColeThe Life by Martina ColeThe life, written by bestselling author Martina Cole, is arguably one of the most authentic gangster family novels that has hit the shelves in recent years. The main characters are the polar opposite Bailey brothers Peter and Daniel. Daniel has a passion for violence that is legendary in London’s East End, which, combined with Peters ruthless nature and calm exterior makes the duo unstoppable. In the late seventies they made their mark on the city and became untouchable when their son’s joined the business, despite the desire of many to bring them down, some very close to them. This gripping novel tells of a family torn apart by violence, betrayal and revenge as well as one woman’s choice to shield her child from a world that will determine her future. The plot has plenty of twists and turns along the way and those who like violence will not be disappointed.

Martina Cole’s novel Hard Girls went straight to No.1 in the UK and was on the Sunday Times hardback best seller list. She also had No.1 hit with The Business, Faces, Close and The Take that also won British Book Award for Crime Thriller of the Year and was adapted for Sky One.

This, her latest novel, has received mixed reviews but it certainly worth a read.
