Being in the know can be deadly. Joanie Brewer's children mean the world to her. She'd do anything to make sure they're fed and clothed - even if it means going on the game - and she lives in constant fear that one of them will be taken from her. Eighteen-year-old Jon Jon is knee-deep in crime, and Jeanette, only fourteen, knows more than is good for her. But it's Kira who really scares her, for in a world where no one is to be trusted, her eleven-year-old angel is the most vulnerable to danger. Then Kira disappears and Joanie's darkest fears are realised. She thinks she knows what's happened to her little girl, and her obsession to uncover the truth threatens to destroy them all.
'Cole is brilliant at portraying the good among the bad, and vice versa, so until the very end we never quite know who to trust. This is the very stuff that makes her so compelling.' (Daily Mirror)

Brutal and Believable
- C. J. Lansdown
GOOD GRITTY DRAMA
Its pace. Kept me reading and making me annoyed when I had to stop to get dinner for the family. Good Essex girl is Martina - enjoy most of her books.
Sorry - can't remember names of books once I've read them.
No, I haven't but she is perfect for this author's style.
Martina involved us in the central family's world and made us sympathize despite some of its members not being very good people. As a mother, I couldn't stop a tear or two flowing when the mother lost her child. Every woman's greatest fear.
Jane Austen, she aint - but for a good rollicking read without having to work too hard, she suits me.
