another gripping tale of harsh, gangland life of london by Martina Cole. Thoroughly enjoyed this book especially while out on one of my long walks. As ever harsh, hard hitting and exceptionally emotive. My only criticism being the narrator who at times I felt was very wishy washy and used limited expression.
Well worth a listen

I enjoy Martina Cole's novels but this book was very repeatitive, the story not ever going anywhere. Because of the setting and characters in the novel the language is extreemly crude throughout. Try Lady Killer, a far better listen by the same author.

What did you like best about The Business? What did you like least?
I love the subject matter that Martina Cole covers, but I believe that her work would be far better if she had a decent editor. I lost count of how many times she used phrases such as "sooner rather than later," and "s/he smiled widely." It drove me crazy. There's a chance that Ms. Cole is successful enough to ignore her editors and insist that her books be published "as is," and if that's the case, then I think that she should re-think her stand.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The ending was predictable, but satisfying.
What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator is really pretty good, though she'd b e better if she read the book a couple more times before narating, just so she understands the nuances in certain sentences, though I'm being a little harsh here.
Any additional comments?
I really hope tht the author reads this review. I'm trying to be helpful.
