Dangerous. Thrilling. Compulsive. Revenge is the brand-new novel from the phenomenal number-one best-selling author Martina Cole.
Be sure your sins will find you out. Michael Flynn is untouchable in a world of power, money, and violence. He fights for what he wants and he takes it, whatever the cost. He learns the rules of the Life from the best and when his mentor, legendary Face Patrick Costello, is taken out, no one questions that Michael Flynn is his natural successor. For Michael, loyalty - and crime - pay.
Michael Flynn rises to heights beyond anything the criminal underworld has seen. He owns everyone and he rules his empire with an even but fierce hand. No one would dare challenge him.
Then the unthinkable happens. Perhaps Michael Flynn is not so untouchable after all. And he must learn that...without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness of sins.

Say something about yourself!
Anyone who hasn't read real crime books. The plot was never developed, it just droned on with banal language and shallow characters.
Reconsider the lack of any real plot, rewrite it. Fundamentally a serial soap opera.
. There are so many good crime writers out there. For those of us who enjoy well written crime stories this was dreadful. The narrators voice was like chalk being drawn across a board. The accent horrible.
Yes, it made me realise how patient I am to have kept listening to it.
Save your credit for one of the other crime writers.
Gripping, interesting, violent
Her interruption of voice
Martina cole is one of my favourite authors
"Believable narration.. But...."
First off five star narration by Annie Aldington.
Surprisingly this is my first Cole book. It's not very often I can't get through a book it took me ages to get though to the end, personally finding the story line, situations and characterizations boring and too repetitive for my taste after initially being hooked in at the beginning, my interest soon ebbed away as the story unfolded.
It felt more like I was reading a script for TV.
To give Cole her due it does get better towards the end but I still stand by an 'ok' score.I felt there just was not enough depth to the story line despite the superb narration.
Been told to try her earlier stuff so will be giving that a go instead.
Seems Martina has run out of ideas, having read most of her books this one is just the same old story and identical characters doing the same jobs, if you are looking for something different then you will be disappointed.
"Blood Murder and Revenge"
A very typical martina cole novel but this one had a bit of a twist to the overall story ... As the title suggests and within a few chapters you know that there is going to be revenge and it will not be pretty .... and you know who the victim is but how who and why .... a bit disjointed in parts but overall an enjoyable if not bloody listen but I was fed up by the end ... I wanted to slap the narrator Annie Aldington ... no dark or shade to her voice everyone to me sounded the same character.
"Get ready for a roller-coaster ride of repetition"
Well not tell us every thing 3 times
The narrator was the only positive
That I was wasting my time and money
"Same old same old!"
Yes for curiosity's sake this time. I have read or listened to all Martina Coles books,
And have found them very good! But now feel with her more recent books the stories are
The same so are becoming predictable!
New characters! New plot!
Performance was Ok
Would try Martina Cole one last time to see if she can live up to her original talent.
different narrator, different book
anything as long as its niot Martina Cole and not the same narrator
Keep quiet ?
Anger at the poor story line and even worse narration
"Love the Irish catholic Eastender family values"
Really appreciate the ease in which the story unfolds
Michael Flynn of courses
I don't miss reading time when the story is told to me
"Revenge by Martina Cole"
Yes I would listen to this audio book again
I found it absolutely absorbing I have listened to it
I count this as The best of Martina Cole
I would say to anyone listen to it
I loved the way nothing was a foregone conclusion it twists and grips you to read on
The reader was superb , her accents on the different characters were so good.
I found that she made the book sound exciting and she was a pleasure to listen to
Revenge is best served cold! This film is red hot
This is right up there with my best reads this year
Slow repetitive storyline; if the expletives were removed it would be much shorter!
First and last Martina Cole for me. Not recommended.
"Great stuff !!!"
I liked everything about this book all the characters and the set up .
I do however make my choice of book by looking at whom the narrator is .... And if it's Annie Aldington you can't go wrong . Simple put amazing love her . X
