She has no code, conventional or criminal, save for self-advancement. Blessed with uncanny beauty and cunning, her calculated and repeated efforts to achieve her own ends are spelled out in lurid detail. The result is murder, mayhem and general misery.

But Cynthia is deeply unhappy; she has always craved the best things in life, and is determined to get them. She will let nothing stand in her way, even if it means devastation and tragedy for those nearest to her.

I decided to buy the hardcover version of this rather than the Kindle one as I'm not quite sure how the high Kindle price can be justified? Surely the whole idea of ebooks is that they cost less whilst being environmentally friendly? Anyway, I'm glad I did buy the hardcover as I would have felt even more cheated if I'd paid for the stupidly priced kindle version.

The writing itself is as good as ever, but the author's tendency to over-describe situations and characters definitely slows down the pace. There is far too much character development and not enough substance to the plot, which really let me down at the end. The characters themselves are believable, but a little bit boring in that they are a re-makes of earlier models and too predictable. THE FAITHLESS seemed to start pretty well and I was carried along by the first few chapters and then it just fizzled out. I forced myself to read to the end hoping that there would be some kind of twist or change in direction to catch me out and restore my faith in Martina Cole, unfortunately it didn't happen.

I guess I could now be considered as one of the faithless as I won't be buying another book from this author unless it receives absolutely amazing reviews!

For the last three books that Martina Cole has written, I finish it and then promise myself I won't waste money buying it full price. I feel terrible saying that but it's the truth. I have always been a huge Martina Cole fan and loved the older books such as `Ladykillers'. Sadly it seems that many authors who have huge success seem to go rapidly downhill. I fear that Martina Cole is now firmly on that list. So after finishing her last book entitled The Family I swore that was it. Yet here I am a year later having broken that promise and paying full price for it. For some reason, due to Martina's sheer talent, I always feel that maybe this is the year she will come back with a bang. 3 years on and I am still not feeling the slightest rumble, let alone bang.

Overall this book was far from terrible, but it is still lacking something which I can't quite put my finger on. The story itself sounded fabulous from the synopsis and I was looking forward to reading this. As I started reading I had high hopes as you are drawn into the world of the loathsome Cynthia Tailor. Martina certainly still has the knack of producing some vile characters and Cynthia is one of them. Cynthia is a character that is constantly wanting more and its pretty clear from the outset that this woman will stop at nothing to get her own way.

I was very excited reading the first few chapters as the story took no time at all to pick up momentum. I was swept along with Cynthia's sister Celeste who has bagged the ultimate prize in her partner Johnny. A local face and a man set for better things. Cynthia's children Gabby and James Junior play a very large part in the beginning of the story as do her parents Mary and Jack.

It becomes clear before long that the story is set over quite a long time period and as w hole the story itself was great, as were the characters. Halfway through and I was still loving the writing but felt that the major difference between this and her older book sis the sheer volume of narrative. I am certainly no book expert, I just know what I like. I don't recall Martina Cole's earlier books ever being this descriptive. If you were to weigh up the descriptive narrative and the characters actually speaking I think people would be shocked. It felt like there was an awful lot of repetition and I really didn't need to be told hundreds of times how much Cynthia wanted everything!!!

I genuinely feel so torn about this book. I actually liked the story and the characters and her writing is still as strong as ever. However, I really disliked the amount of description everything had, and I had that sinking feeling that I was just reading a re-hashed story I had read a million times before. I am still really unsure whether Martina Cole has changed her writing, or whether the competition out there has just got better. These days with the likes of new writers such as Kimberley Chambers and Dreda Say-Mitchell coming along, maybe people expect more. I know it sounds a little sad, but I can't help wishing that Martina would make a monumental comeback with a book that blows everybody away.

Overall I can't say that I disliked this book, but it just isn't as good as some others. No doubt I will still (stupidly) continue paying full price for Martina's new books praying that it's the best ever! I imagine that this book will get really mixed reviews and would suggest to see her better work you should try her earlier stuff.

I was a bit disappointed with this one. Ok ... the plot showed promise, but the characters somehow didn't quite measure up for me. I can handle the idea that the "evil member" of the cast was really nasty. but did we have to be reminded of it quite so often? I think not, and that spoiled it all for me. A bit more light and shade at character level would have been a whole lot more believable.

I'll read Martina Cole again ... but with a bit of trepidation.

This is an excellent work and the characters well developed. I found it a gripping story and the author certainly knows her way about underworld and and their life in London. Recommended to any one who enjoys a good read. I shall definitely be reading more of Martina Cole' works.

This is a hard hitting gritty and down to earth book. It is very graphic in the details of life
with an under-class of people in society. A big insight to the way some people live, but it should be a reason why you read it. I loved this book. Martina Cole a very hard hitting, gritty writer.

What can I say about "Faithless"...normally Martina Coles books are very good and so it this one but one thing that really drives me nuts is when the authors decide to name all the characters the same, so in this book we have Jimmy, Jack, James, Joseph and James junior...the ladies are Cynthia and Celeste.. really, there are no other letters in the alphabet? I like to relax when I read a book, not have to spend the first half of the book focusing on who is who!!
Some other Authors also do this but this is the worst case by far. But other than that, the book is a good read, similar to her others but that's what she writes about so people can't expect anything else.
