Publisher's Summary

Dangerous Lady is the iconic first novel by Sunday Times No.1 best seller Martina Cole which catapulted her to fame and made her the 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian). This audio edition contains a bonus interview between author and narrator and is a must for fans old and new, and listeners of Patricia Cornwell and Karin Slaughter.

Maura, the Ryan clan's youngest and only daughter, is the last person anyone expects to take on gangland London. But with her eldest brother Michael by her side she fast becomes the queen of organised crime. Smart, tough and beautiful, no one is a match for her.

But with power comes a price, and Maura is forced to put her heart on the line. She might be a dangerous lady but everyone has a weakness....

Special feature: Martina Cole chats with Annie Aldington, who narrates her audiobooks about their favourite characters, books and the world of Martina's novels to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dangerous Lady.

Best read since the Clifton Chronicles!

One of my first audio books was the Clifton series. Since then it’s been hard to find anything that measures up. Well I’m happy to say that between the fantastic storyline and incredible performance, I’ve finally found my next round of books to enjoy!

Read this book years ago, wanted to read Maura’s Game next so I needed a recap. This audiobook was perfect! And excellently delivered by Annie.

Definitely a matter of taste!

I was persuaded by all the fabulous reviews that this audiobook has but I was disappointed. Although gangland London is a great subject I didn't get much of a sense of time and place. The characters and their 'progression' was totally uninteresting to me and I am having to give up on it.
