I was captivated first by the eye-catching cover of the book ‘Lady Beth’. As a huge fan of Noir, the imagery immediately drew me into that style. The story lived up to expectations. It’s a thrilling journey into a dangerous world. The story is fuelled by tension and high stakes. I became immersed in the desperate lives of fascinating characters who are all plagued by inner traumas. The book delivers multiple hard-hitting surprises, resulting in a powerful ending. A truly compelling read!

I received this as a 'Giveaway' and am happy to give this honest review.

A very gritty, low-life, drug ridden tale. Nicely twisted, well written and conveys the sub culture and darkness of life situations that fortunately most of us never get to see, even second hand. Severely harming, self harming strands with victims, sadness and despondency. A slice of life that it is right to bring to the attention of all of us who have little, if any, awareness. Nothing much in the way of heart-lifting here

Gritty warts-and-all crime thriller, a real page-turner. Plenty of twists and an array of well-drawn characters you care about, propelling you forward to the end.The heroine is a fiercely protective single mother who loses her son to drug addiction and can either cave in completely or seek revenge. Past demons add to her torment. You feel her pain as she hovers on the brink of that agonising choice, the interesting cast of characters around her ready to help in whatever direction she takes.

When I started reading this book, I thought I wasn't going to like it - at the time I thought the swear count on the first page was unnecessarily high, not realising that it wasn't there just to remind me of the urban setting, but to get the character of Jesse fixed firmly in my mind. I'm glad it didn't put me off and stop me from reading, though, as in fact I could hardly put the book down once I got past the start.
Very gritty, very earthy, and a grim picture of a side of Dublin that as a tour

Lady Beth is a dark story. Truly dark. Set in urban Dublin. A mother’s loss – her son, her ghost son. The soulless world of drugs. The violence of abusers. The desperate search for resolution. A black world out of control.
But a story of redemption as well.
Beth is a wonderful, strong character. Full of both darkness and light.
This is an excellent read. Caroline Farrell shares an insightful, truth-filled voice.

Beth has never told her son who his father is. She wants nothing more than to protect him, so it’s best he doesn’t know. The memories are too painful for Beth and there is nothing to be gained by revisiting them. Then tragedy strikes and Beth is lefty with no option but to deal with the aspects of her past she would rather forget.

Jesse wants to live his life, his own way, without his mother watching his every move. Why must she be so clingy? Can’t she see how suffocating she is being?
