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.
‘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.’
