'With the tough matriarch at its heart, this second instalment of Brett's Great Yarmouth-set series is brilliant seaside noir, the action playing out at cracking pace in the rough and seedy resort' Sunday Times Crime Club

'Be prepared to immerse yourself in Great Yarmouth's murky underworld with this great thriller' Five Stars, The Sun - 'Book of the Week'

Tatiana Goodwin has finally begun to piece her life back together after the events of the past year. Having taken over her late husband Rich's empire, Tatty has put together a massive deal to capitalise on his dirty dealings - and hopefully extricate herself from a life of crime she'd been unwillingly drawn into.

But following a suspicious fire in the firm's new HQ, and a number of unexplained deaths in the town, it soon becomes clear that there's more than one person who's after the Goodwin family assets. With her daughter in a rocky relationship and her teenage son Zach beginning to follow in the footsteps of his gangster father, everything is getting a little too close to home for Tatty's liking . . .

As the family is pulled further into the criminal underworld she sought to protect them from, Tatty has some difficult decisions to make - before her enemies make them for her.

'Things are hotting up . . . But the book offers more than just crime: the characterisation is strong and the relationships between the various family members and their associates and enemies skilfully depicted. A particular treat for anyone familiar with Yarmouth' East Anglian Daily Times

'Brett's knuckleduster-hard story goes behind the tawdry neon of the day-tripper strip. A promising series . . . Fans of Martina Cole will look forward to this' Peterborough Today
