brilliant follow up from widow makers looking forward to the 3rd book

I read this book over the summer afterits release and, having read the first in the trilogy, I could not wait to start Strife and began reading in the car on the way home from the book launch. An excellent progression from The Widow Makers. Tommy gains control of the quarry but has little or no thought for the welfare of his workers or his father . . .

Looked forward to the sequel and I wasn't disappointed. Now waiting anxiously to find out what happened to dreadful Tommy Standish. Surely he's due a downfall. Joe and Emily are now like my relatives as is young Edward and Frank.
