'Not once had Terry ever been hauled in by old bill. He was sure the filth was aware of him, as he had his fingers stuck in many pies, but he was a background man and that's the way he liked it. He made sure that he kept well away from the dodgy motors, the thieves and the yards...'

Terry - the lucky villain with a heart of gold - is riding for a fall. Michelle - the wife h...more

All the usual characters, the drunken mum, idolising father, princess daughter, no-good boyfriend with the diamond best mate and the villains in the background, set in the Essex towns. This was actually a very good read. I could feel sympathy with the main character and really wanted things to work out for her in the end. I'm not sure if there is a follow-up, the story did end tidily, but there is scope for another one. I'll have to investigate.

Shockingly I only picked up my first Kimberley Chambers book at the end of last month. Since then I have gone and brought her first two books and devoured them both. The Betrayer was Kimberley's 3rd book and was a first class read. Her second book published Born Evil I loved but it wasn't a patch on The Betrayer.

I really liked this book, it flowed well with interesting characters & kept me wanting to read on & on which I did & finished it in a day and a half.
Chambers writing is similar to Martina Coles however Chambers adds humour in to the story but I think Cole has the edge with better endings as this is the one thing that I think let this book down.
After following Billie Jo's turmoils & troubles the quick happy ending was disappointing but I did really enjoy the rest of the book and...more
