Publisher's Summary

Danger and violence have always been part of Sue Dalston's East End upbringing. Unloved by her mother, abused by her father, and brutalised throughout her entire marriage, she smashed her husband's skull in a final act of desperation. All that keeps her sane knows that she's done it to protect her four children. At last, they are safe from harm. When she is celled up with murderess Matilda Enderby, their fates become inextricably linked. And no one - least of all Sue - could have predicted the consequences...

Fascinating

How two lives from complete opposite lifestyles meet is fascinating. The book helps to gain an understanding of why some women tolerate abuse for so long. An excellent read into the psyche of abuse and the triumph of justice.

Where was Annie?

This book took me a long time to get into. It was good but I wonder why Martina chose a different narrator. The narrator did a great job but I’m so used to hearing Annie tell the stories.

Amazing narration and gripping story

I thought the narration was just perfect for every character and brought the entire book to vivid and colourful life.

The story was gripping and exciting and as ever, brilliantly written.

Fired up Woman

Firstly this is the best narration ever, Jacqueline King is superb, her voices genuinely sound like different people and kids are hilarious.
Laugh out loud humour and stomach churning heartbreak in equal measures.

My favourite Martina Cole book so far. The study of family dynamics and the cycle of abuse is actually more fascinating than just hard men. Though of course there are plenty of them.

Amazing

I don't understand why Jacqueline King has not been the voice on many more Martina Cole books. She is an unbelievably fantastic reader.

Two women - unrelenting miserable

Martina Co!e gives a good insight on to the impact of life and abuse on self esteem and insight into why women become involved in abusive relationships. But this was unrelenting miserable. I cou!d not take the continual descriptions of Rape, the violent, emotional and verbal abuse of women and the misery. It just went on and on and on. I had to return it.
