Publisher's Summary

Dangerous Lady is the iconic first novel by Sunday Times No.1 best seller Martina Cole which catapulted her to fame and made her the 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian). This audio edition contains a bonus interview between author and narrator and is a must for fans old and new, and listeners of Patricia Cornwell and Karin Slaughter.

Maura, the Ryan clan's youngest and only daughter, is the last person anyone expects to take on gangland London. But with her eldest brother Michael by her side she fast becomes the queen of organised crime. Smart, tough and beautiful, no one is a match for her.

But with power comes a price, and Maura is forced to put her heart on the line. She might be a dangerous lady but everyone has a weakness....

Special feature: Martina Cole chats with Annie Aldington, who narrates her audiobooks about their favourite characters, books and the world of Martina's novels to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dangerous Lady.

Best read since the Clifton Chronicles!

One of my first audio books was the Clifton series. Since then it’s been hard to find anything that measures up. Well I’m happy to say that between the fantastic storyline and incredible performance, I’ve finally found my next round of books to enjoy!

The perfect voice for a good story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - the story is great and the narrator is spot on.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Michael. Because he's a strong male lead, which I enjoy the most.

What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She narrates it brilliantly, but I can't say that she brought anything more than my own imagination would have created.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are always certain sayings, retorts and opinions that Martina Cole adds in her stories that make me chuckle.

Didn't know it was her first book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved that it followed a large London family through from just after the war, up until the '80s. The most memorable bit was the audacity of the gold heist! Will definitely buy the next book to see what happens to Maura next.

Could not stop listening

Was hooked in the first 5 minutes which is unusual for me. This was my second Martina Cole book- first being Two Woman which was also fantastic with brilliant narration. The story line kept you on the edge of your seat, I laughed and I cried along with the loveable characters. Didn’t want it to end so was delighted there was a second book in the series!!!! So within 30 minutes of finishing Dangerous Lady I’m about to start Maura’s game. Am pleased to see it is the same narrator.
