    Brilliantly written I loved this book by Linda Calvey and I can't wait for her next one. From start to finish I was hooked on the characters and storyline, it's so addictive that I found it hard to put down.

From start to finish I was hooked on the characters and storyline, it's so addictive that I found it hard to put down. Ruby's daughter Cathy decided to go it alone after walking in on her uncle Bobby and his wife Belle having a heated argument where she found out that her mother was responsible for killing her uncle George who had raped her. She met the father of her children (twins) Levi in a bar that she works in with uncle Bobby. She'd lived a very sheltered life and she naively thought that he loved her. She gets caught with a bag he asked her to pick up and after arriving at the police station she finds out it's full of drugs. Instead of telling the truth she kept quiet and whilst in prison she later finds out that he's already married with children. She give birth then ends up killing herself . It's an un-put-down-able book from beginning to end.

    What a great gangland book through and through, this lady knows her stuff. I loved all of the characters even Levi who at times I could have smacked one. The book leads us through first-class crime, lies, deceit, drugs, and on the other side, glamour and a deep-rooted love of family. It has everything you could want and I couldn't put it down. It is about a family with Ruby Wilson at the head of the drug cartel, and her precious daughter Cathy, among a few other characters, but not too many to conf What a great gangland book through and through, this lady knows her stuff.

Full of darkness and danger this book will keep you on your toes from the first to the last page. The only negative is that I wish there was not the continual mention of the designer names of things being worn and used by the characters, it was unnecessary and became a bit irritating. As the story goes I highly recommend it.

Ruby Wilson is head of a drug cartel which brings all the danger, double crossing and violence of the criminal underworld. Investing her time in the business she has provided the very best of everything for her daughter, Cathy. After they both witness the bloody murder of Archie, Ruby’s beloved husband and Cathy’s father, Ruby decides to send her daughter to live with her brother and his wife to keep her safe. Little does she know that Cathy is at risk of far greater danger than the criminal underworld namely Irish traveller, Levi.

    Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read The Game by Linda Calvey. This is the first book I have read by this author and it was a fantastic gritty read!! In fact I would love there to be a follow on from it. Its also very interesting to read that Linda Calvey has spent 18 years inside prison herself.

She finds out who has done this and then re-enacts her husbands death with the murderer. Ruby then moves back to England, where her daughter is living and all sorts happens that, some of it I guessed, some of it I didn't guess. I won't say too much as this point, as I don't want to spoil it for you. If you like Martina Cole, Linda Calvey is definitely an author for you to try. A great, page turning read!!

    This book is set in the criminal underworld in Spain and London. It's filled with drug dealing, violence, double crossing and has plenty of twists. There are some interesting characters with Ruby at the top of her game, leading the family "business". When her daughter, Cathy, is threatened Ruby pulls out all the stops to protect her but who can she trust? The book is well written and the ending left me wanting more.
