Apologies for the length of this review but when a book comes along that is perfect, I feel the need to tell everybody about it. Shockingly, I had not even heard of Kimberley Chambers and only read her first book in October 2010. After reading the first one I realised that I may well have stumbled across a new talent that I feel is fast approaching the title Queen of Crime in the UK. After devouring the first I read her second and third book in quick succession. Her fourth book (this one), is th ...more

I felt I was going down a rabbit hole and just getting sucked in deeper and deeper the more I read.
Loved the thrill I felt while reading this and it felt so totally real. Everything that happened in this book was so believable and I felt I was their along with them all.
There are some great characters in this book and some had me having a few LOL moments.
Can't wait to find out what happens with Eddie Mitchell and Jed O'Hara.
Book 2 here I come.
Another fantastic book I was utterly glued to and couldn't stop reading. Once again Kimberley Chambers has written a gritty fast paced story full of twists and turns and believable characters. I was on the edge of my seat towards the end and immediately started The Traitor after the final page. The whole Mitchell/O'Hara series is just brilliant. Anyone who enjoys books by Martina Cole, Jessie Keane etc will love Kimberley Chambers just as much, if not more! Absolutely unmissable, this is a firm ...more
This was great fun to read! If you're familiar with Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers is a tamer simplified version but still features tales of the underworld and some nail-biting violence!

In a nutshell, this is all about two dangerous families at war and I was at the edge of my seat waiting to hear of the revenge acts and scandals. Warning: There is quite a lot of violence throughout. Like most books out there about the London underworld, expect many many cliches - but I'm sure, like me - you'l
What an unputdownable book this is. if you are a fan of Jessie Keane you will love this novel by Kimberley Chambers, however, I still think Jessie has the edge on Kimberley.

The book is violent with strong language and graphic detail. Its easy to read and fast paced. It starts in the 70s describing the feud between a London protection gang and the local travellers. I loved all the characters who were very believable, Stanley and Joyce were very funny at times and I found myself laughing out loud,

Very rare does a book take over my day quite like this one did.
Kimberley Chambers has fast become the Queen of crime writing in my opinion.

Totally thrilling edge of the seat read.

The Feud is the story of the Mitchell family and their feud with the O'Hara's over a period of 20 Years...

So good!!! My first KC read and it won't be my last!

Very much like a Martina Cole and even narrated by the same stunning narrator (Annie Aldington).
It completely captured the life of two crime families in Britain as they feud throughout two decades

I could not put this down and I'm so pleased its only the first book of a trilogy because it leaves you gasping for more - the twist at the end will have you on the edge of your seat - cant recommend this one enough

Fantastic gripping book, you can't put it down as you need to find out what's coming next. I've even woke up in the middle of the night with total anticipation of the next chapter xxxx

First book is mostly about Eddie and Jessica. I love Eddie he's a typical gangster but with a fierce loyalty and a big heart. Great read
