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.

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.

Brilliant as usual. I absolutey love Martina Cole. She must have the most devious, twisted mind on the planet. Keep going Martina, writing these brilliant books.

Held me from start to finish

What made the experience of listening to Dangerous Lady the most enjoyable?

Really well read and performed. The story held my attention from start to finish and I looked forward to a decent car journey to be able to listen to it. Like a really good page turning book couldn't wait to here the next part of the story. Gorey in places but it is gangland Martina Cole!

Better and smarter

Smarter than EastEnders, smarter than any TV programme relating to Essex and a much better writer than Patricia Cornwell.
