Brilliant!!

I loved this audiobook - LOVED!

My God, housework was never so much fun before audiobooks - these days it'd be impossible for me to even contemplate trying do stuff around the house without one on!!

Straight into what will hopefully be a terrific book 2, I mean one can't really go wrong... gangland London (I literally used to live a couple of streets away from the main streets in the book - and that's always fun to read!), a lesbian contract killer with a dysfunctional family life and history, dual time periods of her young self and Rina now through alternate chapters, starting in the 50's and moving forward through time (a really interesting way to have written it) and the hope of a HEA for Rina - whichever way she swings - is all good for me!!

THEN!!! Add ANNIE "The Dog's Bollocks of Narration" ALDINGTON to the mix and OMFG a whole other level of AWESOME is reached *sighs happily* ...it doesn't get much better than this friends!

Nonstop action

Phew what can I say I'm exhausted from listening to this book, it's really nonstop and even though the heroine is actually a murderer I can't help but like her, have downloaded the second book and can't wait to listen.
