The Sting by Kimberley Chambers @kimbochambers @HarperCollinsUK

Book Description:

*The explosive new thriller from the No.1 Sunday Times bestseller*


Tommy Boyle and Scratch always had each other’s backs. But old loyalties die hard on London’s streets, and when Tommy throws his lot in with the notorious Darling family, Scratch gets thrown to the wolves.


Shedding her old life for the Old Bill, Scratch goes undercover on Operation Sting. Bringing down the Darlings’ empire will be her duty – and getting revenge for an old friend’s sins will be her pleasure.


As gritty and dangerous as the London streets in which it’s set, this is No.1 bestseller Kimberley Chambers at her best. Get ready for a shocking read with a STING in the tail . . .

My Thoughts:

I knew from the opening pages that this was going to be an emotional roller coaster of a read and I wasn’t wrong. Now having finished it, I feel quite bereft after reading Tommy’s story.

Tommy from as soon as we meet him, I knew was a good lad. His home life isn’t the best and is about to get even worse. My heart broke for him and his sisters for what they have to go through, more so for Tommy.

The story centres on Tommy himself, his time growing up and to when he becomes part of the Darling family. There are so many highs and lows for Tommy but I couldn’t help having a feeling of dread throughout the novel as to how things were going to end.

The Sting totally absorbed me. I switched off to everything going on around me whilst I entered Tommy’s world. I enjoyed the friendships and relationships he had with certain characters. Actions are everything in this book and I have to say that some peoples really took me by surprise. An enthralling and heart wrenching read of which I devoured and absolutely loved.

My thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins UK for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

The Sting is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
