The Life by Martina Cole

The Bailey brothers are gangsters determined to make their mark in the world.  Peter and Daniel are chalk and cheese in many ways – Peter’s calm exterior belies his ruthless nature, while Daniel’s penchant for spectacular violence is legendary – but together they are unstoppable.

From the late seventies they rule London’s East End and, when their sons join the business, it seems that no one can touch the powerful Baileys.  Although it’s never easy at the top; there is always someone waiting to take you down – sometimes even those closest to you…

Lena Bailey is determined to shield her youngest child Tania from the Life.  But when a terrible tragedy occurs, Tania’s eyes are opened to their world in a way that forces her to make an irrevocable choice that will determine her future.

Martina Cole’s gritty and gripping new novel is an unflinching portrait of a family torn apart by violence and betrayal, but ultimately bound by loyalty, by blood, and by a burning desire for revenge…  It is a story of the Life, told as only Martina Cole can.

From the №1 bestselling author Martina Cole,
comes the most authentic novel of gangster family life ever written.

Peer & Press Reviews

We always get excited when a Martina Cole novel drops on our desk, and she continues to maintain her reputation as one of the best fiction authors around with this gritty and unforgettable story of a family immersed in a world of violence and revenge.  Spectacular.

Closer Magazine

Brimming with menace, graphic scenes of violence, devilish twists and turns and yet intricately laced with home truths and some astute psychology, this is a gripping story of the Life, told as only Martina Cole can.
