Blackmail: A completely unputdownable gripping and gritty

Heather Burnside’s novel “Crystal” introduces the protagonist as a working girl that had been through a terrifying ordeal. She has now decided to put an end to using drugs and left her career as a prostitute so that she focus on raising Candice her daughter. She never thought she would ever attract the attention of Gilly, a pimp who wants to use her for something but cannot figure out how yet. In the following weeks, Gilly increasingly becomes obsessed with Maddy, particularly when she starts dating Aaron, a successful businessman. Meanwhile, her livelihood is being threatened by gangs who are intimidating her and could just destroy her business. Will she be able to come out of this by beating her tormentors? Ruby” by Heather Burnside is the story of Ruby, a woman that has had to become strong. She had grown up with an absent father and a feeble mother and at times had to battle her siblings for supremacy. An incident during her childhood had left her with a lot of trauma and this had metamorphosed into a hatred of men. Kept me up half the night as couldn't put it down . Absolutely adore Martin and Beth. Edge of seat all the way .' Reviewer, *****After taking a career break to raise two children Heather enrolled on a creative writing course. During that time she had many articles published in well-known magazines and went on to run a writing services business before focusing on her novels. To earn income while she studied creative writing, she set up a writing services company that has also done quite well. She had several of her articles published in a variety of British magazines before she published Slur, her crime thriller based in Manchester. I’d like to thank Head of Zeus, Aries and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read ‘Guilt’ by Heather Burnside in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Heather Burnside is a gritty urban fiction writer from Manchester in the United Kingdom. The author spent much of her childhood in the inner city suburbs of the city, in what was deemed the toughest estate of Manchester. I LOVED IT!!! Clever, beautifully written and entertaining. And, what is unusual in the mass market of contemporary domestic noir/psychological thrillers, characters you actually care about.' NetGalley Reviewer , ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book is fast-paced, addictive and completely absorbing. I loved Beth's character and was fully invested in her story. She comes across as genuine and believable. Having lived in Manchester all her life, many of her novels draw their inspiration from her experiences growing up in the suburbs. As for most of her characters, they are the people she has met and interacted with over the years. As for her inspiration she does not particularly have any since. Heather Burnside’s novels do not resemble the works of any of her favorite authors such as Jeffrey Deaver, Minette Walters, Val McDermid, and Nicci French. However, her work most resembles that of the likes of Mandasue Heller and Martina Cole.In addition to her long form fiction, she is also the author of “Crime Conflict & Consequences” which is a short story collection written in multiple genres. When Beth meets wealthy crime boss Martin, he sets her up in business, dotes on her and gives her everything she wants. But Beth is plotting revenge on the man who tried to ruin her... Will her plan come together? Or, this time, will she lose everything for good? In the 1990s, her estate was the home base for one of the most dangerous gangs in the city. It was regularly in the press due to drug related shootings, gang crime and other undesirable happenings.
