The Reprisal. Kerry Kaya.
Cathy Townsend has it all, a loving husband, two handsome sons, and a lifestyle that many people would be envious of.
One bloody night after a series of violent events Cathy's whole world comes crashing down around her.
Left both heartbroken and reeling from the events that took place Cathy must come out stronger than ever if she is to seek revenge on the people responsible for stealing her family and her perfect life away from her.
Amidst family secrets that should have stayed secret Cathy soon comes to realise that blood isn't always thicker than water.
This small blurb on Kerry Kaya's gangland crime fiction book does not do enough justice for the contents within!
Having been a fan of Kerry's writing from the initial release of "Barking boy", any release from the pen of Kerry's is eagerly anticipated.
The Reprisal is gritty, sharp, and has some shocking changes to where you think the story may be going... Kerry has a way with words that puts you in among the action, visualising every line, every scenario and every dodgy character is easy, and with the addition of some short sharp shocks in the storyline you will find this a gangland thriller you won't be able to put down.
A highly recommended read from Londoncrime! (Jim, Founder of Londoncrime.co.uk)
A Word from the Author: Kerry Kaya
My name is Kerry and I live on the border of East London and Essex. I grew up on one of the largest council estates in the UK, and it is here that I set my novels. In a way I am very lucky to live here as each time I step outside my front door I see and meet people who’s traits and way of life make up the colourful and sometimes charming characters that I write about, and I believe it’s this knowledge that brings the characters to life in my books.
I have always had a passion for books and I begun writing stories when I was a child. Those stories soon become full length novels, and I wrote my first novel, which was a historical romance when I was in my twenties.
I am fascinated by crime, true and fiction and my crime series was influenced by a conversation I had with my younger brother about football violence. Many rewrites and years later I completed what would become the second novel in the series, Top Dog.
After writing and thinking about my main character, Danny McKay, for over ten years I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to him, so I went back and added in the Carter family to my novel so that I could go on and write what then became the first book in the series, Barking Boy. In doing this I was able to give my character Danny McKay a minor role. I’m so glad that I did write Barking Boy as the novel has had some wonderful reviews and I am honoured to have it showcased on the LondonCrime website amongst many other talented authors.
