Absolutely brilliant, I loved every page.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 November 2017
This compelling story follows the lives of 3 very different children brought up in a care home: Sarah, (the traumatised heroine of the story) is a self-assured but aloof teenager; Harry, an adorable sad little boy, and finally Vinnie, a sadistic and manipulative bully. The story takes several shocking twists that left me reeling. Yet it was so good, I found it impossible to put down! I ploughed through this book on holiday and cannot recommend it highly enough. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
BrilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 July 2018
Another amazing story full of interesting characters from the seedy world of gangsters and their long suffering women. A real page page turner for lovers of this genre. Another winner Mandasue.

Another good read. I couldn't put it down. A bit gritty in parts but I had to keep reading because I needed to find out how everything worked out for Sarah. I definitely recommend this book and author Mandasue Heller

Loved it!!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 November 2016
It's been quite a while since a book has captured and held my attention, Tainted Lives certainly caught me from the first page. It's gritty, dark in places, thrilling and most definitely not to be missed. This is the first title I've read by Mandasue Heller but I'm now off to purchase another!
