Summary

Murder, loyalty and vengeance collide in Jessie Keane's gritty fourth novel.

Lily King has spent years behind bars.

Convicted of murdering her husband, London villain Leo King, she hasn't been missed. Everyone believes she got what she deserved, but Lily knows she was fitted up.

Now she's out, and she doesn't do forgiveness. In her absence things have moved on, and the old order has changed. But now she's ready to reclaim her position as head of the King family.

Fuelled by vengeance, Lily King is back, and some people aren't going to know what's hit them.

Compelling story

Well done, Jesse Keane, for a great story and rounded characters. Definitely Martina Cole-like but no facsimile. I loved it.

Jail Bird

First time listening to a Jessie Keane novel as I've gone through all Martina Cole amd Kimberley Chambers and I must say after this book it looks like I'll be reading/listening to all Jessie's novels too. Brilliant story and awesome twists, excellently written xx
