When Crystal’s pimp, protector and former lover, Gilly, dies of a drugs overdose Crystal is bereft. She refuses the paid protection of a rival pimp, determined to go it alone. But a vicious beating from a client leaves her feeling vulnerable and angry.

Meanwhile, Crystal’s daughter, Candice, is asking difficult questions about her job. Crystal decides it’s time to make some changes, and, when a high-profile judge offers her payment to keep schtum about his nefarious activities, it gives her an idea. Perhaps other clients will also pay for her silence…

Crystal engages on a revenge mission to rob, blackmail and expose her most depraved clients. But some of these men are highly dangerous and, if Crystal wants to exact her plan of revenge, she must accept the risks that go with it.

Image of author Heather BurnsideHeather grew up in Gorton, a working-class area of Manchester, moving to Longsight, where she spent her teenage years on one of the toughest estates in Manchester.

During the 1990s the estate became the headquarters for one of Manchester’s predominant gangs. It regularly featured in the local press due to shootings and drug-related problems. Heather draws heavily on this background as the setting for many of her novels.

After taking a career break to raise two children Heather enrolled on a creative writing course. During that time she had many articles published in well-known magazines and went on to run a writing services business before focusing on her novels.

Heather now works full-time on her novels from her home in Manchester which she shares with her two grown-up children.

“Each of the books can be read as a standalone although there is some overlap with characters who sometimes appear in more than one book. I hope you enjoy reading this series as much as I am enjoying writing it.”

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • I’m torn between this cover and the second as my favorite.

    It’s nice to see that the author says they can be read as stand-alones. But you know me… I’d have to start with the first. 😉

    • Hi Kelly,

      I can’t decide between the two either, although on this occasion, like yourself, I shall be reading the stories in order (shock horror!)

      In fact Heather has been most obliging and must have known just how bad I am at series reading, as all three of her series to date, have been trilogies, which are much more manageable!

      Have a great weekend and thanks for being so supportive this week 🙂

    • Hi Naida,

      If I am totally honest, this probably isn’t really my preferred style of fiction, however I am definitely going to give this particular series a try. It has been generalized on many sites as ‘Gang Lit’, so I want to know exactly where that places Heathers books on the, ‘too hot to handle’ scale!

      Thanks for visiting this week and I hope you have a great reading schedule lined up 🙂
