Great read, takes the reader on a journey from the privileged class to the world of illegal immigrants on the run. This has a really interesting thread running through the story that keeps you guessing to the end. Justice must be done but will it? Takes you from a Private school to the dark and dismal life of the homeless in a city where nobody cares. Excellent!
Wasn't sure what to expect from this book but it had everything. You end up rooting for the characters and love that it links so many different lifestyles and challenges so many stereotypes. Hard to describe why it is so good but you should read it because it is brilliant and you will not be able to put it down until you've finished. I am just off to download another Helen black master piece.
Yet another good story by Helen Black, as soon as I started to read this book I had to carry on until my eyes got sore.all the people in this story,your followed them hoping that they came good in the end,and the good did come through,I do not want to give any thing away,but it is a fast moving story,you will not be disappointed.
A story with suspense and twists which opens eyes to the horror faced by asylum seekers, even as they try to leave their horrors behind. A look too at the apparently casual attitudes of solicitors more interested in 'winning' than achieving true justice. Good book, worth reading!
I'm a big Martina cole n Jessie keane fan someone on the train started talking to me about the book I was reading n suggested Helen Black, what a surprise I read the reviews n here i'am I'm currently on number 3 but the the 1 st 2 are great, hope the rest of them will be 5**
Loved everything about this book, couldn't put it down, a well written book and how intricate it was made, I would recommend this book, it's the first I've read of Helen Black, but intend to read the next one ASAP
Although set in the past it strikes a chord today with all the dreadful anti- immigrant propaganda going about. makes you really think about what it is like for those who come to Britain fleeing from hell. A good read
