In the sixties, Briony Cavanagh ran a string of the most notorious brothels in London. Only Briony knew what went on behind those doors, and she never opened her mouth - unless she stood to benefit. Only Briony knew the painful road she'd travelled to get there. From an impoverished childhood that ended with shocking betrayal, she was determined to be mistress of her own fate. But along with success came risk and danger. And the Goodnight Lady had her own secret place that was always shadowed by loss.

Very good story with colourful language so not for the prudish. Very strong characters and real life the way it was. Easy to recommend as it covers all the bases, with some funny parts along the way peppered with some brutal moments.
Cannot think of a comparison off the top of my head.
Tommy Lane the main characters consort.
The book found me sitting in the car longer than I needed to just to get to the end of the chapter. Hard to leave in the middle of a chapter when a book is this good.
I did not realise how much I like this style of book until I discovered Martina Cole or should I say someone suggested her to me.
I really enjoyed this book would definitely be recommend to friends and family martina Cole is a great author
Couldn't put it down. kept me gripped to the end. The narrator is brilliant too.
one of the best most unputdownable books I've come across . so sad it came to an end !
"First Class Audio Book"
This audiobook went beyond my expectations.
The excellent narration coupled with a wonderful story makes this is a must listen!
Perfect. Strong women, heartfelt and gripping. Narrative good as usual. I would recommend - currently making my way through the series on Audible.
"Hooked from the very beginning"
I wasn't sure what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised, I was hooked from the very beginning. Martina Cole's description of The interracial relationship was gripping and emotional. I would say this is one of her best, including the exceptional narrating, you won't be able to stop listening.
Really enjoyed book, sorry it's finished. Love the span of years, the changes in the way of life. Great narrator.
