Guest Review: Fatal By Jacqui Rose

An eye for an eye.
Cabhan Morton wants to leave the Russo crime family for good and live in peace with his daughter, Alice Rose. But the Russos won’t let him walk away without a fight.

A tooth for a tooth.
Franny Doyle would do anything for Cabhan and Alice, but helping them escape the vindictive Russo brothers won’t be easy. The only place they’ll be safe is back in Essex with Alfie Jennings.

A daughter for a daughter…
Franny knows she won’t be welcomed by Alfie with open arms – but she doesn’t have a choice. The Russos are out for blood and they won’t stop until Alice is dead…

Review: This is the eighth in the series of thrillers by the author, but it can be read as a standalone book. I haven't read any of the previous books, and after having read this one, I'm unlikely to. It is a gritty story of revenge between two organised crime groups, spanning both sides of the Atlantic.

This book is definitely not one for the squeamish, since it contains scenes of very graphic violence. As it is a story of violent criminals, it is very difficult to feel any sympathy with the characters. I also found some of the coincidences and situations in the plot highly implausible. Having said that, the chapters in the book are relatively short and the story moves along at a fast pace, so I found myself wanting to keep reading to find out the fate of the characters.

Hence, if you are a fan of violent crime fiction, this will appeal to you, but if you are of a nervous disposition, I would suggest that this is one to avoid.

This book comes out in the UK on January 10th, to pre-order your copy, just click here!
