      hmmm, good one. long but good. a bit too gory too stomach at times. made me feel blessed i'm an insignificant nothing, rather than a big head hunted down by enemies who would go for my throat any time

    2. Andrea on said:

      The first ever Martina Cole book I read. Very out there and brutal, love her books though. Not for the faint hearted!!!

    3. Joanna Mcdonald on said:

      Brilliant read, couldn't put the book down. Realy good ending as well.

    4. Joanna Mcdonald on said:

      Fantastic read. A story about how a young girl, no matter how badly her upbringing is, can still make a good life for herself.Brought up by a prostitute for mother and an alcoholic for a father, she manages to escape her damaged life and find refuge, not after going thru her fair share of emotional traumas.She ends up stabbing one of her mothers punters and her mother, deciding that she hasn't been a good mother, decides to take the blame for it.After her mother is jailed, she is put into care, [...]

      Couldn't finish this book - got about half way. It wasn't that it was badly written, all the full stops were in the correct place, or was just so long and boring. It's difficult to say that something with such a depressing and harsh storyline was boring but it truly was and I'm kind of tired of the same old crime fiction storylines of whores and women thinking they need men to survive. I'm honestly thinking of starting to read chick-lit, this stuff is getting old.

    6. Joanna Mcdonald on said:

      Fantastic book about a girl who survives a really bad childhood, with an alcoholic father and a prosititute mother.She makes a success out of herself with courage and determination. She doesn't use her past or upbringing as an excuse in life.Heartwarming story, really sad ending but utterly brilliant.

      Cathy and Eamonn are thrown together as children growing up on the sleazy streets of London's East End. Cathy learns how to survive in the criminal underworld, and Eamonn, fleeing to America, has become a ruthless villain. Its only a matter of time before their paths cross again. It lets you see how a friendship from the past can be good or bad for you. And how it affects your loyalties

      This time it wasn't a case of looking for something to read, I noticed Martina's name on the cover and bought the book having 'enjoyed' FACELESS. This novel, set in the 1960's and 70's, opens with Cathy having been badly beaten up and fighting for her life while her ex-childhood sweetheart, Eamonn, is in New York arranging to come back to London to see her before she dies. These then are the two main characters and the rest of the novel takes you from their childhood through their teenage years [...]

    9. Sharon on said:

      Wow what a book, at times it’s almost too hard to handle some of the raw and brutal scenes but overall it is quite an optimistic book that no matter how hard life gets if you have strength of character you can overcome it. It follows the story of Cathy O Connor who was brought up by a mother on the game. After her live in partner Docherty leaves her (along with his son and Cathy’s lifelong friend Eamonn), she begins to bring her work home and they have designs on her daughter Cathy. In one s [...]

      I am absolutely astounded. This book is probably the best book I have ever read. I first came across this novel by chance. I was on Youtube and came across a mini series called 'The Runaway' and so I watched all of the episodes and loved it. I then discovered it was originally a novel. I ordered the book and I was initially intimidated by the size of the book when it arrived.I didn't pick it up for a while and I am quite indecisive when it comes to what to read next. I finally decided to pick it [...]

      As children Cathy Connor and Eamonn Docherty only had each other to lean on while trying to survive the crime infested London East End. After living in constant threat and danger as a prostitute’s daughter, Cathy is soon put into the care system which she finds even more dangerous and has no choice but to runaway to Soho – the sex centre of the city. Meanwhile, Eamonn creates a name for himself as a heartless gangster and soon has to run away from his own crimes to New York where his reputat [...]

      This is the fifth book by this author that I have read and I have enjoyed everyone of them. Her books are probably for the English audience unless you know a lot of English slang expressions but if you can get by these then they are a good, fast read. They can be quite graphic and the language is very raw. I enjoy them as they remind me of my childhood as I grew up in the areas described in the books.Back Cover Blurb:When Cathy Connor and Eamonn Docherty are thrown together as children in the sl [...]

      My rating for this Martina Cole story went from a 4-star (at the beginning), down to a 3-star (because the middle felt very long-winded and the story wasn't moving quickly enough for me). I was pleasantly surprised when I found my former 4-star rating returning (for the last quarter of the book). before becoming a resounding 5-star by the end. Yes, it really was that much of a rollercoaster read!This story is a difficult one to stomach at times - it includes horrific violence, and some startling [...]

    14. Omie on said:

      Could not recommend this book enough, actually any book by this author. Once I started reading, I could not put this book down and it seemed to end far to quickly for me! Martina Cole is a world class author, and writes with such passion and manages to leave the reader emotional. I am only 14 years old so I originally thought this book would be to old for my age, but I loved every single minute of it. Another one to reccommed i 'Hard Girls.'

    15. Hil Sloan on said:

      Simply dreadful! I listened to this as an audible download on the strength of all the great reviews on and . It just went on and on I kept listening because I thought it must improve soon. So much gratuitous violence and interminable graphic detail that left little room for a decent plot.

    16. Louise Jennings on said:

      Such an amazing book I love it. Couldn't put it Down recommend it to anyone!!!

    17. Heather on said:

      i couldn't put this book downonce you start it, the pages are constantly turning. it has it alllove, hate, violence, revenge, pathos of the best Martina Cole books.

    18. Zoe Hall on said:

      This is the Martina Cole I LOVE. Long books with incredibly well crafted narratives, with interesting lead characters. Not to say her recent work has been poor because it hasn't, but they don't have the spark that these books have (in my opinion of course). Sex, abuse, love, betrayal, violence (a lot of violence!) and murder are huge themes in this story. This book kept me interested from the first word to the last. Martina Cole at her best.This is also NOTHING like the TV series a few years ago [...]

    19. Elize on said:

      This was by far my favorite of Martina Cole's books. The story was exciting from beginning to end and it's one of those page turners that you can't put down. I loved the characters and related well to all of them. I even had tears in my eyes on more than one occassion :) If you enjoy Martina Cole's books - this one is a must read!

    20. Vai Lolohea on said:

      Very good read - found this book to be a major "page-turner". It is quite a long book, but it gives excellent background development on main player/characters. I found myself becoming attached to many of the characters, and it evoked many emotions throughout the entire book. Not a book for all, but definitely a book I would recommend for those who like a gritty read.

    21. Jess on said:

      This book destroyed me in the best way possible. It was so good, the plot was fantastic, the characters so interesting even though you hate most of them at least a little. I never cry at books, but I was tearing up at more than one part of this book. Would definitely recommend!

    22. Marlyn Currie on said:

      Fantastic Read. The Runaway, again another excellent book by Martina Cole. I couldn't put it down. Fantastic story, loved every minute. I have read a few of her books and I have to say, Two women is my favourite, but the runaway is definitely my second favourite.

    23. Jen Barrow on said:

      Really enjoyed reading the book throughout but felt the ending let it down a little. For a novel that had such a detailed and considered build up, the ending appeared to be rushed and wasn’t as satisfying as the rest of the story which exuded detail.

    24. Pamvi on said:

      What a great read, couldn't put it down. A little gory but added to the intensity of the narrative. Thoroughly enjoyed it for start to finish.

    25. Damian on said:

      ExcellentLoved this book. I could have e read on and on. Martina Cole at her best. I'm hoping there is a sequel

    26. Christina Anderson on said:

      Good book. Martina Cole gets you into the shoes of her characters

    27. Kayleigh on said:

      There is something comforting about a Martina Cole novel if you are familiar with her style of writing. You know when beginning one of her books roughly what you're going to get. A Martina Cole novel is always going to be reliable and you pretty much know what to expect from the first page. 'The Runaway' is no different really. As is pretty typical for Cole, a lot of this could have been condensed in to a much shorter novel. Also pretty typical is her awkward and stereotypical descriptions of et [...]
