Blimey O'Riley. Where to start? Bizarrely, prior to starting this book, I'd only the day before finished a Santa Montefiore novel. Exposure let me tell you, is as far removed from Ms Montefiore as Bing Crosby is from Kanye West. Nowhere in Exposure will you find a leading man with a tanned chiseled jaw, cologne sodden, with eyes the colour of the Aegean and teeth whiter than Santa's beard - that's the big guy in red by the way, - I'm not suggesting Ms Montefiore has a facial hair problem. To get to the nitty gritty, the men in this story have a penchant for pierced parts and serpent tattoos from their necks to their nethers and an insatiable greed for sleazy animalistic sex with compliant nubile girls desperate to earn a few quid. Let's just say if this book was televised, it'd be sponsored by Gillette Blue 11. I'll leave that with you... It packs a punch alright - talking Muhammed Ali circa early 70's kinda punch too, and yet, I found myself sucked in and totally absorbed in the seedy world of porn despite kicking and screaming against the squalid goings on this story revolves around. It was grim yet captivating leaving me feeling grubby and guilty for liking it. Reckon that means you, Ms Marsh, has a rare talent. You've heard of car crash TV? - well ladies and gents, I give you car crash reading! If you like a story that leads you by the hand through fields of cornflowers, then wines and dines you over candlelight, this is not for you. However, if you like a gritty no nonsense well written grab you by the doodahs and thank your lucky stars you don't have a life like Kitty Sweet kinda book, - read it. Dare you!

Ava Marsh's debut, Untouchable, was an unashamedly ballsy look at the world of high-class escorts, with a hugely captivating plot and the tension of a top-class thriller. It's success was built on combining a protagonist who readers vied for with an original element of risk, all set in the shadowy world where sex is debased to a financial transaction. Grabbing the reader from the off with a pithy look at the lead character compiling her tax return and deliberating on just what can be classed as legitimate expenses, it was effortlessly engaging. The risqué sex details were not gratuitous in the slightest and much of the sexual content was a necessary by-product of the territory. Needless to say, I had high expectations for Exposure...

Opening in 2016 amid the visitors room of HMP Brakehurst, it is a surly and bitter Leanne Jenkins that awaits a visit from childhood best friend, Maxine. Antagonistic and intimidating, sat with her legs astride, Leanne is the epitome of "damaged goods". Inside for a double murder with at least six years remaining before her first appearance in front of the parole board and nothing awaiting her on the outside, Leanne is a source of unrest amid the volatile environment on the wing. As Maxine delivers some shocking news to Leanne her frustration boils over and after kicking off and spending a week on basic, prison governor Harding offers her the chance to work with a new therapist, with some surprising results. Unravelling over a dual time frame, the novel is well constructed and sees Leanne working through the story of just what led up to her incarceration ten years previously and finally offering her side of the story and a chance, at last, to explain her actions.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, not least because it took me to a world that I didn't know much about. It is very well written and gives tantalising hints of what happened so you think 'just one more chapter'. I ended up reading into the small hours to find out how it would end. I'm off now to buy Ava Marsh's other book Untouchable

I enjoyed Marsh's first novel, but this is not as solid. I am not even sure that I liked it too much, although I did remain somewhat interested in the outcome.

I think I was disappointed on two fronts. Firstly, the mystery element is not that strong, despite a couple of good ingredients. It's not until about the 40% mark that you are given a hint to explain the cause(s) of our protagonist's predicament. In the end, I really felt disinterested in the outcome and just wanted the book to finish. Secondly, we again have a helpless or hopeless (which, or both?) female lead who makes poor decision after poor decision and I struggled to warm to her.

The methods of delivery - shooting back between today and ten years ago, and the first person account to a second person audience for parts of the book - could have confused, but I think Marsh handled these aspects pretty well.

It's quite a graphic novel, in terms of themes at least, so it won't be for everybody.

In short, the tale, without a meatier story core, and without a protagonist I cared for, didn't deliver enough for me to get too excited.

I loved Marsh's Untouchable from last year and this cements her status as a 'must read' author for me. Leanne/Kitty is another complex, multi-faceted character like Stella/Grace in the first book and another sex-worker, this time a porn star rather than an elite prostitute. When the book opens Leanne is in prison for murder: but who has she killed and why?

This is, again, not for the faint-hearted: there's no coyness here about what it means to work in the contemporary porn industry and we see it all, from the corporate 'high end' to the sleazy one-man-and-a-camera and the truly terrifying stuff on the margins.

Marsh writes superbly, creating real characters with nuance and depth. She also manages to work a brilliantly vivid plot that develops logically rather than feeling imposed on the book - that old maxim of 'character is plot' is brought to life here.

And oh, that tricksy ending! There were one or two tiny blips in the story that I'd noted but by the end I could see how perfectly placed they were to create exactly that tiny little shiver of unease in the reader. The end, when it comes, is both audacious and yet also logical, and made me want to go straight back to the beginning...

So another masterful performance from Marsh which has the pace and grip of a thriller with an underpinning of intelligence, and none of that silliness in plot which so often mars these types of books - I loved this!
