Because of the mixed reviews, I thought I was taking a bit of a chance on this 2nd Boxer tale. All I can say is that it was a chance well taken, because I think this is even better than the original story. It is hard to highlight specific aspects without giving away the plot - but the way in which Amy leaves home will be absolutely chilling for any parent (particularly anyone dealing with a headstrong teenager). The two storylines are cleverly interwoven through Mercy who needs to work to survive her personal crisis - and there is a massive twist in the tale that I certainly hadn't seen coming. Core family characters are building nicely and peripheral ones - important to this plot - are well drawn and incredibly well presented by Steven Pacey. My only qualms are - do ruthless gangsters really know when violence goes too far - and whilst I adored the end chapter (as I am a great whooz) was it right ending. Buy and enjoy, I am now going to explore what else the author has done.

I really do love listening to Steven Pacey - he really brings a book to life!
Bit far fetched in places but that didn't put me off - I still really enjoyed the story and will listen to more - I am enjoying the whole series.
