    One thought on “Maura's Game

    1. Book Addict Shaun on said:

      4.5 starsI thought about giving this book 5 stars but then I figured if a book is a 5 star read (in the opinion of the reader) then it doesn't require thinking about and so I give this book 4.5 stars. It wasn't as good as Dangerous Lady which is the first Maura Ryan book and readers should read that book first before this one just for continuity and to understand the characters further than what is written about them in this book. Martina's books are always mammoth reads and that's one of the th [...]

      I am reviewing the gangster thriller Maura's Game by Martina Cole which is a very good novel which I bought from a car boot sale. This is the sequel to Dangerous Lady which I haven't read yet. Apparently she was queen of the underworld and robbed some money and was living on the proceeds. In this novel there is a plot to oust her and her husband from their kingpin positions. They put this down in quite ruthless fashion even killing the adult children of people quite dear to them. Some people get [...]

      The thing with Martina Cole is, you know what your getting - gangsters, violence, swearing, predictable characters. I think I may have read Dangerous Lady in the past, but not 100% sure. This however does stand fairly well on its own, there are a lot of characters thrown at you fairly early on though, so reading the previous book may have helped get those in order quicker! It does what any Cole book does though, plenty of twists and turns, but repetitive at times, but a fairly quick read for suc [...]

    4. Maria Daines on said:

      One of the first Martina Cole books I found by chance and I love each and every one. The storytelling far outweighs the predictable text and if I had to make a negative comment I'd say she should cut out the repetition of the words 'and he knew it' or 'and they knew it' or 'they all knew it'. But then again that's what editors are for and I guess nobody messes with a Martina Cole manuscript, she's fabulous and I'm a huge fan. Couldn't put this book down, awesome plot as always.

    5. Lorewra on said:

      This book is the sequel to Dangerous Lady. Unfortunately it could never live up to the standards of it's prequel. I've read many books by Martina Cole and despite falling in love with Cole's writing style, I soon realised that all of her books share a similar story and are all of the same genre. She would be alot more interesting to read with more of a variety.

    6. Rashele Wade on said:

      This is the very first novel by Martina Cole that I had the great pleasure of reading and I have been hooked ever since then. Martina Cole has a way of grasping and keeping my attention from the very first chapter until the last. I am so addicted to her writing style that I purposely search for more of her novels to read.

    7. Plum-crazy on said:

      I thought at first I wasn't going to get into this book but I persevered as I'd really enjoyed "Dangerous Lady" & this book went straight in where that had left off. I did find it a bit confusing at first trying to recollect all the characters & their relationship to one another.which makes me think it would be a difficult book to follow without reading the prequel first.In typical Cole-fashion it's quite a vicious tale & not a book to read if you're offended by bad language. None of [...]

    8. Heather Love on said:

      Fantastic read. You must read the first one, Dangerous Lady, before this. Couldn’t put it down read it in two days gruesome in parts but that’s gangsters for you. torture for information, kill or be killed

    9. Lynn Hutchinson on said:

      Enjoyed this, don't enjoy the language but guess it's probably authentic!

    10. Grace on said:

      As usual this was another great book with so many twists and turns you just didn't know how it would end.

    11. Sarah on said:

      Was a little disappointed with this follow up. Thoroughly enjoyed Dangerous Lady where we first meet Maura Ryan and have been looking forward to reading this one. It didn't really seem to go anywhere, no real suspense to it.

    12. NancyHelen on said:

      What do you get if you cross Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Made in Essex and Eastenders? A bit of a cliche, that's what. This book felt cliched the whole way through. Maura is the head of a criminal family. Her surviving brothers are violent and unhinged and she seems to be the only voice of reason amongst them. When a turf war begins, Maura somehow manages to keep her head, even though her lover has been killed and the bodies are piling up. It sounds like it should be OK, but it was pret [...]

    13. Katie on said:

      Firstly, if I ever hear another reference to tea, it will be too soon. It was funny and ironic at the beginning where hardened criminals would stop mutilating enemies' bodies to have a cuppa, and then it just got downright annoying. I suppose it is the english culture, and for something so small to be the only bad point to this book, then I guess the book was pretty good, right? I did enjoy this book. The characters were well thought out and 3-dimensional. Most of the main characters were brilli [...]

    14. Loraine on said:

      Meh. When my other half asked me what my book was like, that was the noise I made. I am disappointed really. I read Two Women by Cole and enjoyed it but this one didn't do it for me. Perhaps its because I haven't read the previous book, although this story stands fine on its own. I think I just felt like I was being told a lot of things rather than being in there with the characters. The language is very colourful and the violence is bad. This is mixed in with long passages of being told how muc [...]

      Apparently she was queen of the underworld and robbed some money and was living on the proceeds. In this novel there is a plot to oust her and her husband from their kingpin positions. They put this down in quite ruthless fashion even killing the adult children of people quite dear to them. Some people get tortured and the people they kill are equally ruthless. It seems their plan has been compromised and they are out for revenge. Most of the action takes place I think in Liverpool & London [...]

    16. Ann York on said:

      This is the follow on form dangerous lady i liked this on better the dangerous lady all maura ryan wants t do is put her past behind her and be with the only man she has ever loved but her past is closing in on her and soon the people who are going after soon learn that the should never cross maura ryan right from the start i hae enjoyed her distinctive and powerfull written fiction and the slags and scum of coles fictional underworld are becoming the stuff of legend it's vicious nasty and utter [...]

    17. KK on said:

      Dangerous Lady, the prequel to Maura's Game, is a story about a young girl and her family getting heavily involved in the business of London crime. It starts in the 50's with Maura's birth, and ends somewhere in the 80's. Maura's Game carries the tale into the 90's. Overall, it's enjoyable, easy going and occasionally quite witty. It could've been a whole lot shorter, though, and there are hundreds and thousands of cliches in Cole's prose and characters' dialogue. So, if you like to read about g [...]

    18. Simone Elizabeth on said:

      wow. I've been a Martina Cole fan for quite some time but still haven't read all her books. I've heard good things about this one so was hoping I wouldnt be let down. wow what a book. got to agree with what others have said. as much as I am a fan and love her books this one is definitely one of her best. earlier works are a cut above the rest. this book kept me in suspense the whole time. I couldn't put it downfull of twists and violence. just what I like. this was number 2 in the maura Ryan ser [...]

    19. Joanne Nock on said:

      As a latecomer to the work of Ms. Cole, I had the ability to go straight on to this after finishing it's prequel "Dangerous Lady". Neither of them disappointed. We follow Maura Ryan and her "colourful" family from her birth to her early 50s and the twists and turns are just brilliant. If you have never read any Martina Cole before, these two are the place to start .

    20. The Cats Mother on said:

      Her books are hard to enjoy because of the violence, swearing and nastiness of many of the characters, they can also be quite repetitive, but at least this one had quite a good story and it certainly kept me hooked to the end. I won't read any more though as it's basically the same story each time."

    21. Emma on said:

      Another gripping book from Martina Cole. . From the 1st book, Dangerous Lady, she continues to write books that cannot be put down once started! Dangerous Lady should ideally be read before reading Mauras Game, but its not essential. Everyone I know that reads her books, including me, are eager for more.

    22. Kestrel on said:

      In true Martina Cole style, this novel takes you from the first to second book, seamlessly. The subject matter just grows as you read, and the story stretches right to the last page as usual. A wonderful read, and again I couldn't put it down. If you like twists and turns and characters on the dark side, I would certainly recommend it.

    23. Kelly on said:

      I enjoyed reading this book from start to finish. I enjoyed how the beginning was set over 40 years ago and everything was inkeeping with the time. As with other books, the main character, Maura is fairly likeable and you can't help feeling sorry for her at times. This has to be one of Martina's best books.

    24. Richard on said:

      The follow up to Dangerous Lady which was superb, this one is arguably even better. Never a dull moment, no words wasted but is not for anyone offended by bad language or squeamish over torture and murder. This is true British, mainly London, gang and crime fiction at its most realistic (or so I'm told). If you like your stories gritty and down to earth, this is a must read.

    25. Yaz on said:

      Great story. I'm enamored by the way Martina Cole uses language. I probably highlighted 50+ expressions I thought were pure gold. The only thing I didn't like about this one was the ending. I wanted more mayhem somehow. Overall a great read. Glad I decided to read it again.

    26. Victoria on said:

      loved this book, so many twists and unseen plots, such a fantastic read. Slightly more outrageous then 'Dangerous Lady' but the ending is fast paced and unpredictableit was great to have a mixture of old and new characters

    27. Stella Gizzi on said:

      I really did use to enjoy all books by Martina Cole and i have read them all upto date, however whether it has come with age or too much of a muchness but i dont think i will be reading anymore of them as ive grown tired of each book being so much like her last!

    28. Angie Swain on said:

      Martina Code writes about villans as though she knows them personally. Through the terrible crimes they commit and their horrific treatment of anyone who crosses their path, they remain credible human beings. I've read better books by this author but this one is still a good absorbing read

    29. Tammi Ashbee on said:

      A great sequel. Another gangland story with a happy ending.
