Summary

My mum always said, a fistful of rings is as good as a knuckleduster.

As the Great Smog falls over London in 1952, Florrie Palmer has a choice to make.

Will she stay with the Cutters, a gang of female criminals who have terrorised London for years and are led by her own mother? Or leave it all behind to make a safer, duller life with the man she loves? And what will she do if she's too crooked to go straight and too good to go bad?

Over the next five days, Florrie will have to find her own path and the courage to stumble along it - in a fog so thick that she can't see her own feet.

Following the last days of a crumbling female gang in postwar London, this is a story of family, of love, of finding your way, and of deciphering a route through the greyest areas of morality.

Very atmospheric.

Having lived through London smogs, this was nostalgia for me. Good story and wonderfully narrated.
