Publisher's Summary

Two rival families. One East End.

The explosive first novel in the Mitchells and O'Haras trilogy.

For more than a decade, two East End families have been locked in a bitter war.

On one side are the Mitchells, a notorious underworld mob from East London's Canning Town. They have an iron in every fire and will resort to intimidation and violence to get what they want.

On the other side are the O'Haras. The Mitchells' biggest rivals are a travelling family who live in nearby Stratford. They compete with the Mitchells for pub protection, and the two families hate each other.

Caught between these two families at war are two innocent children who will grow up to love the wrong people and spark the last terrible act in the long-running feud.

Brilliant

In starting this book I originally felt it was going to be very predictable and almost a typical gang land story. It certainly wasn't with many a twist and turn along the way.

Brilliantly narrated by Annie Aldington, I can't wait to begin the second part of the trilogy !

Fantastic as usual

What can I say? Another gripping book that has you hooked. If you like suspense, crime, thriller etc the whole series of the Mitchells and the OHara's will have you gripped. Plus Annie Aldington Reading it adds that extra something. If you could give more than the maximum 5 Stars I really would. Kimberley Chambers as an author is bloody fantastic. Once again thank you. Must have most of these books know.
Thank you Kimberley, Annie and Audible 👍😄

The C Word spoilt a good book for me.

I really enjoyed the story, it was read Well, & there was humour in it. We grew up rough & ready & the f word we heard. But never the C word. Sadly it ruined it for me. plus I wish it had ended differently.
