Revenge, murder and meeting the Family at Christmas
When London mob boss, Jack Murray, discovers he has a son, his joy is short-lived: Nicholas is not a chip off the old block; he’s a nurse whose patients call him an “angel”.
Jack is not happy. He needs someone with balls – not a halo – to inherit the Firm. Zenka takes charge. Using her feminine wiles and gangland contacts she will bring out the gorilla in Nicholas. Her tactics are unusual, and illegal, and things soon start to spiral out of control.
“Don’t vorry, Jack. Ven I am finished vith Nicholas he vill be dog’s bollocks just like his papa” –Zenka

Alison Brodie is a new to me and I am really impressed!! I REALLY look forward to what she has coming next. Alison, I will be staying with you for the ride!!!
ZENKA is fun, exciting, hysterically funny and filled with some pretty intense scenes!! It’s a wild and fun ride!! I was giggling, laughing, and snorting out loud throughout the book!! A bit awkward if you’re out in public. I loved the characters and really got invested. There were times I had tears running down my face (not from laughing) because I was happy for the characters or my heart went out to them. It was just such a beautifully written story! Not to mention the accents!! I LOVED the accents!!! ZENKA’S was the most fun! She is Hungarian, and a fiesty one at that! It vas so much fun to read vhat she says in book!! Lol. Every once in a while between chapters she writes to her friend, Alina, in Hungary. Those letters usually reveal what ZENKA is thinking, and things we wouldn’t know otherwise. But she’s pretty funny in those letters. I love ZENKA…she just cracks me up!!
I JUST WANT TO SEE THIS BOOK AS A MOVIE, I WOULD LOVE IT!!!!
Oh, there’s also Cockney slang. But Alison, so obligingly, put a Cockney translation page. I bookmarked it on my kindle so that I could easily refer back to it. I didn’t have to very much though, you catch on real quick.
I would recommend this book to everyone, unless you hate to laugh…then don’t read it!! Haha….no, really…READ THIS BOOK!!! YOU’LL LOVE IT!!!!
