TELL ME NO SECRETS

The Sweeting family are well known in south-east London, and not for their honesty. Jock is an armed robber, and proud of it, and Kelly, his daughter, takes after him. By the time she is 20 she is running the family gang, organising their heists with success and audaciousness. In contrast, her sister Jackie yearns for a life of respectability. To attain her dreams she marries high-flying policeman Raymond, only to discover that his middle-class background has its own kind of hypocritical dishonesty. Rosamund, Raymond’s unsuspecting sister, meets via the Sweetings the devious and irresistible Kevin Rice – but how long will she last as the wife of a criminal constantly on the run? When the men in their lives lie, cheat and betray them, Kelly, Jackie and Ros decide that it will be for the last time. Their revenge is both outrageous and apt as they plan to bring off the biggest heist of the decade.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_column_text]‘There are shades of Martina Cole in this portrayal of the London underworld but Hudson has a voice of her own. Solid plotting and crisp dialogue make for a hugely enjoyable read.’

FAST WOMEN

Bryce Reece has it all: good looks, charisma, a silver tongue and a heart of gold. And for a while he had the luck to go with it, plotting a series of ingenious heists to finance a legitimate business as a high-class casino owner, enjoying the trappings of success with his adoring wife and daughter. But as Bryce’s exploits attract the attention of the Kray twins and the envy of one of their most sadistic henchmen, the dangers of dabbling in the murky waters of London’s underworld becomes all too apparent. And when those closest to him fall prey to his enemy, it’s time for Bryce to stake his life on vengeance.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_column_text]‘Stunning – read this or we send the boys round.’

LOOKING FOR MR BIG

Deena King is a barrister. A tough, professional woman who has a highly successful career putting criminals behind bars. Al Virtue is a South London villain, the brains behind some of the most daring heists the capital has seen. Only once has he been called to pay for his crimes, and Deena was the prosecuting QC. But now they must form an unlikely alliance, for Deena’s son and Al’s daughter have vanished from college. As the trail leads from the London underworld to the headquarters of a Columbian drug cartel, it soon becomes apparent that the forces of law and order are following an agenda in which the safe return of the young students is not a priority and Al and Deena are pawns in a deadly game.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_column_text]‘The third in a strong series centred on gangland villains. This takes us off to Rio and Columbia as a barrister and a gangster chase after their respective children. I rate her very highly indeed.’

‘This is another winner from Hudson!’

NOWHERE TO RUN

Every woman Johnny Martini gets close to seems to end up in hospital – or the morgue. Most people put the run of accidents down to appalling bad luck. Johnny thinks he’s cursed. But Amber Bailey is certain it’s not just the hand of fate hastening these women to their deaths. Johnny has trodden on a lot toes carving a reputation for himself as a gangster. Is someone trying to pay him back? Or is Amber’s sister so desperate to become Mrs Johnny Martini that she’ll stop at nothing to eliminate her rivals? Amber doesn’t know it, but she’s dangerously close to the truth. And when the killer finds out, there’ll be nowhere for her to run, and nowhere for her to hide.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=”249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nowhere-Run-Maggie-Hudson-2011-07-04/dp/B01K967D86/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488186854&sr=1-2&keywords=NOWHERE+TO+RUN+maggie”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

WALLIS

Wallis Simpson is a woman of myth and legend. Her many secrets begin in her Baltimore childhood and are added to during a marriage of nightmare violence. She flees to China and a lifestyle both tempestuous and dangerous. A second marriage provides an oasis of calm – but it is excitement Wallis craves. Introduced to Edward, Prince of Wales, she senses his deep need of her – a need that could make her first a princess and then a queen. With destiny’s hand on her shoulder, Wallis prepares to embark on a liaison that will shake the monarchy to its foundations.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_single_image image=”59″ img_size=”249 × 57″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wallis-Rebecca-Dean/dp/0007315732/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488186749&sr=1-2&keywords=WALLIS+by+rebecca+dean”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
