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.

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.
