Book Description

Donna Brunos worships her husband and is devastated when he is jailed for armed robbery. Georgio swears he’s been set up and persuades Donna to help him escape.Implementing ‘the jump’ takes Donna into a twilight world she never believed existed - a world of brutal sex and casual violence. Finally, she is confronted by a series of shattering revelations that threaten not only everything she believes in but also, ultimately, her own life...

Editorial Reviews

This is the very stuff that makes her so compelling' Daily Mirror 'Right from the start [Cole] has enjoyed unqualified approval for her distinctive and powerfully written fiction' The Times Intensely readable Guardian 'Martina Cole explores the shady criminal underworld, a setting she is fast making her own' Sunday Express 'Utterly compelling' Mirror 'The story will grip you from the first pages' Best 'Gritty novel from an author who knows intimately the world she writes about' Express

5.0 out of 5 stars Could'nt put it down!!! August 16, 2012
By Carol
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an avid crime fiction reader,Martina Cole is one of my favourite authors...The Jump was fast paced,with lots of interesting characters(some good,some not so good,some just plain horrible)and a good plotline...I purchased this book with the intention of reading it bit-by-bit at night in bed,however,it was such a good read,I literally could'nt put it down until I'd read the whole thing.The book dealt with the unpleasant subject of child pornography,but was done in a way that in no way glorified or minimised it.Also I enjoyed reading about prison life-certainly very brutal at times but also makes you think about the psychological hardships some of the inmates go through while locked up.The bit about the young lad crying on his first night almost made me want to cry. The story was gritty and real and I would highly recommend The Jump to anyone who enjoys Martina Cole's books.Probably the best one of her books I've read so far.

This is maybe one of Martina Cole's best written books and I have read quite a number of her books. This story really got met hooked from start to end and I could not turn the pages fast enough. Good plot and well defined characters. For all the Martina Cole fans out there, this one is a must read!

Really sick, but I enjoy the London sayings, humour and banter. A good story line. A very good and just ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant December 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this book was brilliant. Georgio commits every deception throughout this book. This would be every wife's worse nightmare to learn what Donna Brunos learns about Georgio. What a waste of 20 years of your life on such scum.

Another great book from Martina Cole who keeps you gripped in the book and shocks you more each time you read on.

I can't help but love her books from the setting to the characters.

I would definitely recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing for Martina Cole May 10, 2013

I love Matina Cole. I had such high expectations. This book is just revolves around the same point so many time. Same thing said over and over. Otherwise a good book.
