If you love reading Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers, you won’t be able to put down this absolutely gripping gangland crime thriller from bestselling author Emma Tallon.
Scarlet Drew is hellbent on getting revenge on her cousin Ruby after she exposed Scarlet’s illicit affair with a Met detective. Scarlet fears she’ll never see her boyfriend again now he’s in hiding, and she wants to make Ruby pay.
With all her focus on Ruby, Scarlet fails to notice an old enemy rearing its ugly head. Trapped in an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of London with her aunt Lily, she realises too late the danger they’re in, and that someone has been feeding their most dangerous rival information – someone from inside the family firm…
As the Drews face their most deadly fight yet, they know that with just one wrong move, their entire world could come crashing down. Can they catch the mole working alongside them? And when Scarlet finally gets her hands on Ruby, will she get the revenge she’s been waiting for?
This is book #5 in the Drew Family Series. Whilst it is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone book, although I would recommend reading the books in series order. We take another visit to the Drew family, where the story picks up from the previous book. Scarlett Drew is out for revenge with her cousin Ruby following Ruby’s actions. The matriarch of the family, Lily Drew has problems of her own after the bombshell dropped on her sons concerning their father. The family also have problems with other firms who are trying to muscle in on their businesses. There’s a lot going on, but all the different storylines effortlessly switch between each other alongside the usual family tensions and business complications from this gangland family!
No matter how violent or gory these books are, you can’t help but like the Drew family! Lily Drew has to be my favourite, she’s such a great character! You really want to be at one of her family Sunday dinners, but you also know not to get on the wrong side of her for fear of what might happen! This book gives Lily more than a few headaches after problems with Ray, her boys, Ruby, and her various businesses. Scarlett is still having to deal with the aftermath of her boyfriend, John’s disappearance, and all the way through the book we are kept in suspense wondering what she will do to Ruby when she finds her!
The whole storyline is so tense, it’s verging on the border of everything blowing up in the Drew family’s faces! Yes, it’s violent – there are shootings, beatings and plenty of acts of violence, but it’s a gangland book, I wouldn’t expect anything any less! It is though gritty, gripping, and realistic with storylines that fit into each other perfectly! The tension runs high throughout, and I found myself not wanting to turn the page in some parts for fear of what I might find! The writing is exciting, and you find yourself caught up in all the action, just like you were actually there. There are lots of shocking moments, and a few have left me thinking what the hell is going to happen in the next book! Roll on book #6! Would recommend!
