Dora O’Brien had a good start in life, but things went bad when she began to mix with the wrong company. Pregnant by her gangster lover, she found herself on the streets and then in the grips of a bent copper called Donny Maguire.
When her daughter Angel is born, Dora is already under the influence of drink and drugs, and handed around to Donny’s mates. Growing up in the shadow of her mother’s abusive relationship, Angel is nothing like her mother, but when matters turn murderous, Angel is forced to grow up fast and survival becomes the name of the game.
For some, being on the wrong side of the law is the safest place to be . . .
The Knock is a gritty crime thriller set in the gangland world. It tells the story of Dora, the girlfriend of a gang ‘boss’. She’s pregnant, but the baby isn’t his……
When Angel is born, she grows to see her mum, now a mess due to booze and violence. Will Angel be another victim?
This is a pulse racing thriller, it’s dark and violent with great characters, some of which are truly reprehensible. You are willing Angel on, with the hope she will escape. A character driven tale that’s a real page turner……
Thank you to Emma at Busy Bee PR for an ARC of The Knock. This is my honest and unbiased review.
