Martina Cole's unique blend of emotional drama and shocking realism combine in this electrifying new best seller.

Vic is the proverbial invisible man, as he scuppers the Ryan family plans at every turn, but nobody can locate him when Maura Ryan wants to meet him. I love Martina and am so happy I was introduced to these books about 10 years ago and now I don't have time to sit a read cause of my kids! Benny is an uncertified nutcase, who enjoys inflicting pain and death on those he perceives to be his enemies. Even though I related to it will as a sequel it had room for scope as I have said before Martina is a little tame in her description of violence.

The Ryans are one hell of a family and in this Maura has her hands full keeping her brother and Mother under control! I did like Joey’s personality for a bit because he seemed fun and away from the vicious criminal underworld but then he showed his true colours more near the end and family friend Abdul seemed nice until he also showed his true colours.

I also found that this book was one of the more 'gruesome' reads of Martina's but to be honest that doesn't bother me. You get caught up in her family and their lives and it becomes personal, that you start routing for them, even though you know they are bad. When he is killed in a failed attempt to murder Maura she is thrust back into her role as the gang´s leader.She really just wanted to keep her children safe and didn’t want Lee or by consequence their children and her mixed up in it and I one million per cent agreed with her. Well, I persevered to around 250 pages and was about to dump it as I found it really boring, but then it picked up, so I continued. Not a bad novel - I don´t mean to suggest that it is - but simply not as good as "Ladykiller" in terms of plot, character development, or narrative style. p>The data controller is Headline Publishing Group Limited.

The fact that the Ryan family are meant to be top dogs in the underworld can't find one well-known face running across London was ludicrous and the fact that it went on for over half the book was ridiculous. Love the relationships of the dysfunctional family and there’s elements of wit amongst the violent and scheming ways of the Ryan family. We know you'll be hooked on Maura Ryan, so be sure to first read the gripping prequel to MAURA'S GAME, DANGEROUS LADY. The ending is a bolt from the blue, gives you the clear vision of how it has to be done if ended up in such (character's) way. After finishing DANGEROUS LADY, I took on MAURA’S GAME, thinking it would be almost impossible to keep up the same gritty page turner as DANGEROUS LADY is, but I was completely wrong and thoroughly thankful for that.

I've read many books by Martina Cole and despite falling in love with Cole's writing style, I soon realised that all of her books share a similar story and are all of the same genre. I had previously read author Martina Cole´s excellent novel "Ladykiller" and decided to give "Maura´s Game" a try in hopes that it would rise to the same level.
