I am delighted to share my review for The Score by Kerry Kaya is a gangland, crime thriller read that I adored.

Many thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the Blog Tour and for arranging my e-copy of this fabulous story.

He did the crime…

Twenty years ago, Fletch avenged the gangland killing of his younger brother, Spencer and accepted his guilt. But his actions meant he had to leave his precious children, Austin and Kitty to fend for themselves. He thought they would be looked after…
Served his time…

Now a free man, Fletch returns to find his family in chaos, devastated by his prolonged incarceration. Kit is married to notorious gangster Rosco Taylor, while Austin seems hell-bent on doing everything he can to create a turf war.

Fletch knows he has to do something to get his kids under control, but he also knows that the seeds of this disaster were planted long ago by his own reckless actions.

Now Fletch is back and it’s time to settle the score.

Another gripping gangland read by Kerry Kaya. Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Martina Cole, Heather Atkinson and Caz Finlay.

If you are looking for a gangland crime thriller read then you really need to have a look at this book from Kerry Kaya. It has a very addictive brutal side as well as being very twisted.

Fletch has just been released from prison after 22 years. He is estranged from his son Austen and Daughter Kit, people have moved on and there are only a small few that Fletch can trust. Given his volatile nature, those closest to him are very nervous about telling the full details of what has occurred over the years.

Fletch is eager to get back in touch with his children, but they have moved on, he is a stranger to them, and they lead their own lives. Austen is an act now deal with the consequences later type of guy. This time however he has pushed his luck too far and a cat and mouse game ensues. Rather than keeping his head and dealing with the consequences, he relies on others to help him out.

The author has created such a fabulous storyline with some amazing characters, none of which are particularly nice or trustworthy for that matter. I liked the way the author laid this story out, introducing certain characters, allowing me to get to know them and then she threw in a twist. These were fabulous twists and kept me on my toes, it also meant the story keeps evolving in an almost real-time feel.

This is a gangland crime, therefore the details can be a little bit toe-curling at times. The language is in keeping with the genre, so do expect some heated exchanges between characters. This story is one of family and loyalty, of respect and trust and about trying to build familial bonds. It is an emotional roller coaster of a story and one that had me hooked from the very first page. A fabulous story that will appeal to readers who like a grittier gangland, crime thriller read and it is one I would definitely recommend.
