I’m a Phil Martin fan, this being the fifth of his books that I’ve read, so it was unlikely that I was going to give this story less than five stars. I’m attracted to the characters, places and culture the author creates – in this case, the gritty, authentic gangster threat of Manchester and Salford – but it’s the fascinating story concept that drew me in first. ‘What if’ someone begged you for help via a webcam? What would you do?
With the dark shadows of the Balkans war never far away, the story develops into a love story as Declan tries to repair a beautiful but bloodied and beaten lost soul. This is no Mills and Boon.
The book is raw – it doesn’t dress up the description of sex slavery, drug abuse or mental health with anything other than what it is. But I struggled to put it down, and I’m now rather lost myself – having finished all of Martin’s novels.
