The Cover Up (Marnie Riches)
How far would you go to protect your empire?
Manchester's criminal underworld is reeling from the loss of its leader, Paddy O'Brien. In the wake of her husband's death, Sheila O'Brien takes charge of the city, and for once, she's doing things her way.
But she hasn't reckoned with the fearsome Nigel Bancroft, a threat from Birmingham who is determined to conquer Manchester next.
As a power tussle begins, Sheila is determined to keep control of the empire she has won - even if it means she has to die trying...
A heart-stopping read with a gritty edge, perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.
