Summary

A gripping thriller that will shock you to the core.

Controlled all her life by her religious mother, 15-year-old Kelly Raven commits the ultimate sin.

She soon discovers that running away to the cold, frightening streets of London is less harsh than her previous life. 

A drug dealer, two fraudsters, and a prostitute are her new family now, and she becomes the woman she was destined to be.

Little does she know that Eddie Raven is coming for her, but she is no sweet four-year-old child, and he is certainly no doting father.

The Raven's blood may run through her veins, but in her case, blood is not thicker than water.

Ace Story line & characters

After listening to many of book with this sort of story involving the London gangsters from the early 70 & on wards. Crew secrets is one of the best to this date. This author is new & I am now listening to her next book Ruthless

Loved listening to every minute

This book had everything in it for me. Cruel beginnings to coming out on top. Loved all the characters, especially Kelly. And of course Legend the dog! Am going to miss it now I’ve finished!
