After spending half a lifetime in a seamy underworld where love is for sale and men worship at the altar of sex and greed, claiming sanctuary in a cathedral is the last thing she wants to do - and the only chance she has to find out who set her up. With all clues pointing to Magdalene's ex-lover, a working girl called Lola, the legendary madam is reluctant to trust Tommy, a smooth-talking hired gun, and risk being burned again.
But as time grows short and secrets are revealed, Magdalene will have to look into the dark places inside herself if she is to catch a killer and survive with body and soul intact. In the corrupt city of Crawley, Massachusetts, passion, crime, and religion collide in this steamy, neo-noir romantic thriller.

Intriguing Mafia story
This is my first Nicola R White book, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Not a typical mafia book, this involved Magdalene, the owner of a brothel and Tommy, infamous hit man. A murder took place in the brothel and these two are being framed. White has included a lot in this story, not a typical kill the person, hide the body and find the culprit. Magdalene has a lot of baggage, a secret that can destroy so many lives and has trouble trusting and loving. Tommy does his best to keep her safe, but is his love and skill enough? There are many twists and turns in this book, enough to keep the story fluid, thrilling and interesting.
This is my first narration by Carol Ayon. I commend her for trying to keep the characters in their ethnicity, but I did find her Spanish accent irritating. Her normal narration was wonderful, including the Boston accents for other characters. I would have preferred her to give Magdalene a different voice.

It was like an old fashioned Gangster Movie!
This reminded me of a good old fashioned Gangster story, some of my early reading favourites were early mobsters books
After the murder of a rival mobster’s son at the brothel Magdalene manages. This happened while Tommy was on duty. So they have to lay low until they find out whats going on.
I have say I loved this audiobook, it reminded me of the black and white old gangster movie. So I was in my element. The two main characters Tommy and Magdalene, a madam and hitman hardly heroes, but like old school movies a hitman that won’t kill women and children. Magdalene a madam with a heart.
I not going into the story, it’s not for the fainthearted or under 18 years old.
This is over 7 hours long and I couldn’t turn it off, listening long into the night
The narrator was brilliant, the different male voices was top notch. I was mesmerised and just had to keep listening.
