Hearing rumours that Martina Coles later novels where not her best, I searched for reviews to help me think about spending my money on this book.
<br/>My thanks to the reviewer, I bought the book, and enjoyed it as much as you did.

Written on: 05/03/2004 by gillian (14 reviews written)

The Know is the first novel I have read by Martina Cole. I found the violent scenes difficult to read, but realise that in the seedy world the Brewers live in violence would be the norm.
