KNOWLEDGE CAN BE DANGEROUS Review with images

AdvantagesEngaging, well written, gritty story

DisadvantagesSensitive issues included

"...such as Dangerous Lady and The Jump. However, that all changed on my recent fishing holiday in rural Devon where I had lots of time to participate in solitude and enjoy reading and fishing (sometimes simultaneously) in equal measure. I have the plethora of charity shops in the Somerset towns of Wellington and Chard to thank for enabling me to pick up a substantial number of books in mint condition at bargain prices! My first Martina Cole experience ..." Read review

In the know........

AdvantagesA great read

DisadvantagesThere was an ending!

"The novel, "The Know", is the most recent of stories by the acclaimed criminal and seedy underworld expert, Martina Cole. As were the previous nine books before this, The Know (released in 2003) was a number one bestseller and highly praised. Martina Cole seems to write with apparent ease: her words flow effortlessly and digesting the story takes little thought whatsoever. Before you know it, you are ploughing through this novel with abandon - ..." Read review

*A PROSTITUTE, A HARD MAN AND A LITTLE GIRL* Review with images

AdvantagesWell written

DisadvantagesWill scare parents

"...little or no interest in the world of falling down council estates and more flesh on show than the daily sport. But, Coleís creative response to issues such as prostitution, drugs and racism are so well-written that I havenít looked back since. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *THE STORYLINE* The book starts with a prologue that, for me, partly spoils the ending of the book. In my opinion, endings are endings, I donít want to know the ..." Read review

The Know where knowledge is deadly

AdvantagesA compelling well written novel

DisadvantagesMay offend some readers

"...a few topics. In The Know, all these are covered. Ms Cole is not afraid to draw on things that most of us find uncomfortable and work them into her novels. She pulls no punches and tells her tales of crime and the shady criminal underworld in a highly readable fashion. Several of Martina Cole's novels have gone on to become television drama series and when first published in 2003, The Know' jumped straight to No1 of the Sundy Times bestseller list ..." Read review

Gangsters, Pimps and Whores

AdvantagesWell written.

DisadvantagesSensitive issues tackled badly. Shocking.

"...cant put down and in the case of Martina Cole I now wait with baited breath until she publishes a new title! The Know is the most recent of Coleís work to be published, itís her tenth novel and although only published in October 2003 is already receiving rave reviews. Before we go any further I must point out that Martina Cole isnít scared to dice with controversial or sensitive storylines so if youíre looking for a fairytale this certainly isnít ..." Read review
