Today my guest reviewer Deryl Easton shares her thoughts on The Sting by Kimberly Chambers, which is out now
TWO CHILDHOOD FRIENDS
Best friends Tommy Boyle and Scratch always had each other’s backs. Dragged up in care, and cruelly betrayed by everyone they trusted, they made a pact to fight their way out of the gutter – together.
TWO SIDES OF THE LAW
Old loyalties die hard on the streets of London. Tommy throws his lot in with the notorious Darling family – even if it means leaving Scratch to the wolves. She’s destined for a different path, reinventing herself as copper Kim Regan.
ONE DEADLY SHOWDOWN
Now they’re on opposite sides of the law. Running Operation Sting, Kim will rip the heart out of the Darling’s empire – and only her old pal Tommy stands in her way.
As gritty and dangerous as the London streets in which it’s set, this is No.1 bestseller Kimberley Chambers at her best. Get ready for a shocking read with a STING in the tail .
The Sting is an easy read that goes along at a very good pace, definitely did not want to put the book down, I kept turning the pages wanting to know more!
It did not have a big cast of characters in it which is a good thing so in return because of that we get to connect with each character on an emotional level especially the main protagonist Tommy Boyle.
Kimberley Chambers has very good insight and is highly conscious of the human psyche, understanding how different kinds of personalities can be brought to life in her books about the characters she writes about, I really do admire this kind of author and Kimberley has that gift in abundance and it shines through in the pages of her books!
The storyline’s very plausible and convincing, and at times very emotive.
Chambers tackles sensitive subjects head-on, no bars hold very lionhearted writing indeed!
The Sting is not as gritty or as violent as say The Feud or Butlers saga but it still has plenty thrills and spills to keep her loyal fan base and newfound fans alike to keep turning the pages!
I am very much looking forward to her next book, a big thanks to Kimberley for always keeping us entertained, she does it so well!
A big meaty 4.5 stars from me!
