Another Cracking Read!
Another cracking read from this author! I love this series; each book furthers the story and keeps me glued to the pages!
Georgina has now sealed her position at the top of the Battersea gang; however, she can’t rest on her laurels – there’s always someone who want’s her crown. As the second world war explodes around them on a daily basis, she has branched out in their activities accordingly – always with an eye on the bottom line. However, there are rival gangs still smarting at a woman having the audacity to be in charge, so Georgina must never drop her guard.
Georgina Garret possesses an unflinching belief in herself and rules with a rod of iron. She is a woman in a man’s world but must never show her softer side. Beautifully written in a compelling style, I flew through this one; in fact, I struggled to put it down at all! The characters are skilfully crafted with each one entirely believable. This third novel advances the story considerably and is different to the preceding two and I would never have guessed how it ended! That came right out of the blue and has left me eagerly awaiting the fourth book! A stunning read, one I enjoyed very much and definitely recommend; I’m very happy to give this one a full five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Vicky Joss for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Sam Michaels writes gritty historical crime sagas set in Battersea, South London, which is where she was born and bred, the council estates being her playground.
After leaving school at sixteen with no qualifications, Sam married soon after and had a son. The marriage ended quickly, and as a single mother, she worked in various retail positions until undertaking an Open University degree. This led to Sam becoming an analytical scientist and then into technical sales where she met her husband.
A few years later, they moved from Hampshire to Spain. It was then that her mother, the Sunday Times best-selling author, Kitty Neale, inspired Sam to put pen to paper. She now writes her novels in sunnier climates with the company of her husband, four dogs and six cats.
