What would you do to survive in a world of ruthless criminals and drug dealers? Decide for yourself in this gripping and gritty thriller. Written by a best-selling serving police detective.

This is Rhiannon’s story. She thinks she’s a good person but to stay alive in a very violent world she will be tested to the limit.

Will Dryden wakes to discover his girlfriend Janey is dead from an overdose. Without his friend and partner in crime, he has nothing left to lose.

Meanwhile, police are called to the scene of a car accident – date night gone tragically wrong for Melissa Cooper – and left to break the news to Mel’s teenage niece, Rhiannon. For Rhiannon, it’s a devastating loss. Now she’s on her own.

Will and Rhiannon’s paths cross. Rhiannon gets sucked into the world of the drug dealers and falls into the sights of Aaron – the gang leader. He has a point to prove and is unhappy that he isn’t getting the respect he wants. Aaron takes brutal revenge when the police start to close in on him.

Can Rhiannon stay alive and save herself and Will from the murderous Aaron? Who is ruthless enough to survive?

This pulsating crime thriller takes you on an adrenaline-packed ride with a shocking end.

Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Mark Billingham.

My Review

This is the third book of Charlie’s I have read, one of the other ones was also a stand alone book, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one as much as that one.

As with Charlie’s previous books they are all based in Kent, and in the first chapter one of the main character’s partner is taken to the hospital where one of my daughters was born.

The story starts off with an ex-drug addict finding his partner dead on the sofa one morning and the police coming to investigate.  It then crosses over to 16 Rhiannon who lives with her aunt, until the aunt is killed in a car crash one night.

The story then follows both Will, the ex-drug addict, and Rhiannon until they find each other and try to help each other out as best as they can.

Charlie really brings the attitude and language of Rhiannon to life, and she speaks like a 16 year old does, especially with someone of Rhiannon’s upbringing and start in life.

The characters of both Rhiannon and Will work really well together, especially considering the age difference and their lifestyle differences, and I really like the way they interacted.

The story starts fast but the action in the latter part of the book ramps it up even more, so much so that you realise you have read the whole book in one sitting and it is the early hours of the morning.

This is a completely different move for Charlie and it really works as a stand alone book, although I think he should write more of the same in the future.
