I downloaded this book for my kindle as i really enjoyed Ronnie Coopers other book “Rock Chicks”. This really didn’t disappoint, it’s gritty, dark and thrilling. I couldn’t stop reading it. It was quite blunt, and there’s a lot of sex, drink, drugs and swearing in the novel, but I think the plot line warrants it and it isn’t just for the sake of it or to be shocking.

I loved the characters in this book and it was interesting to read how their experiences with the main antagonist ┬áharden them as they grow up. If you’re looking for a page turner this is it, however it won’t be to everyone’s taste due to the topics addressed in it (prostitution, rape, drugs, murder etc) but it is fascinating.

Anybody read it? Thoughts?
