Freddie Jackson thinks he owns the underworld when he gets out of prison. He's done his time, made the right connections, and now he's ready to use them. His wife Jackie just wants her husband home, but she's forgotten the rows, the violence, and the girls Freddie can't leave alone. Bitter, resentful, and increasingly unstable, Jackie watches her life crumble while her little sister Maggie's star rises. In love with Freddie's cousin Jimmy, Maggie is determined not to end up like her sister. Families should stick together, but behind closed doors, jealousy and betrayal can fester until everyone's life is infected. And for the Jacksons, loyalty cannot win out. Because in their world you can trust no one. In their world everyone is on the take.

A worth-while read. Having read the book and seen the film i would recommend it to most people who are into their gripping, gangster story lines! It has something for everyone- men and women.

“The Take”

this is the 2nd Martina Cole book I've read and I loved it. It was well written and had great characters. It was shockingly awful at times and heartbreaking too. A fabulous story, I would highly recommend it.
