Summary

The new gritty crime thriller: no one knows crime like Kray.

She trusted the wrong man.... 

Judith Jonson has been a widow for five years. At first, she hoped Dan would return, but her dream turned to a nightmare as the war ended, and she had to accept her beloved husband was never coming home. 

Then one day she sees a picture in the paper - the aftermath of a dramatic robbery in London's West End - and Judith can't believe her eyes. It's Dan, she'd stake her life on it - or rather his life, the traitor.  

Betrayed and desperate for answers, Judith begins a hunt for the man she thought she married. And in amongst the lowlifes of the East End's gangland underworld she finds more than she bargained for.  

But Judith had better be careful whose business she meddles in. The rule of law doesn't apply in Kellston. She had been deceived, but she doesn't want to end up dead....

SPOILT BY MAIN CHARACTER

I didn’t enjoy this as much as other Roberts Kray s books and I love anything read by Annie Aldington, however I just could not stand the main character Juliet.
Her accent was grating and her persona just miserable and irritating!
It’s not a bad story line though if you can get by this!

Disappointed

Well !!! Quite shocked on this book as I’ve loved every other one . But this was quite boring and my mind drifted off a few times . Shame as Annie as always performed with perfection just a shame the story line wasn’t as good
