3.5 stars to the author
A Novel by Martina Cole

An intriguing book that was a little slow at the start, but eventually I got to the "meat" of it. The story introduces a fourteen year old boy named Danny Cadogen. Dan's father has left the family, leaving Dan's mom and two siblings to fend for themselves. He leaves school and becomes the bread winner. He gets a job at a junkyard and soon learns the life of crime, striving to be the top crime lord in England. Committing ruthless crimes, even in his home life, Dan feels he is indispensable to the gang.

You just have to read the book to find out how he rises to the top, controls his mother and siblings as well as his co-horts in crime. A very well written story. I for one, would not like to meet this character on the street. 4.50 stars to the author.

Thank you Miriam and Hachette for the book.
