The gripping new gangland thriller from the Sunday Times bestseller and Queen of the Underworld, Jessie Keane.

Once, he loved her.
Now he’s going to put her away for murder.

Christie Doyle is living the dream: she has a beautiful mansion on the South Downs with an infinity pool and stables, and her husband, Kenny, spoils her rotten. It’s her birthday and she is the centre of the most amazing party.

And then the bombshell drops. Kenny confesses to an affair and asks for a divorce. Worse is to come when the ‘other woman’- Lara, nineteen years old and pregnant with Kenny’s child – is found dead.

Suspicion falls on Christie and the Doyles’ life is ripped apart as the police hunt for evidence: lead investigator DCI Dexter Cooper is a face from Christie’s own troubled past and he knows better than anyone what she is capable of.

The race to unmask a killer is on…


A brilliant historical crime read
An epic drama starring an unforgettable heroine. Keane...has a wicked eye for the ruthless, fiercely factional criminal underworld and her books never fail to pack a powerful punch... Every story that Keane writes transports her readers into the heart of a terrifying but addictive underworld, and into the lives of people of every shade... And this cracking page-turner is certainly packed with Keane's trademark cast of larger-than-life characters - each superbly fleshed out and each inhabiting a world so palpably real that we can feel the menace... Brimming with drama, suspense, cruelty and the kind of gobsmacking violence that has made Keane one of the most powerful writers in contemporary crime fiction, this is full-on, eye-watering (of every kind!) entertainment from start to finish!
