He had been working his arse off to allow Mum to stop with all this, to concentrate instead on being a steady, reliable housewife, a mother to her adult sons, one of whom had a strong and fast-growing reputation in the area to think about.

I would be so interested to read another book and find out how his relationship with Max will progress. As the police wrestle with a seemingly unsolvable case, Max is forced to revisit his painful past to find answers to a mystery that seems to make no sense at all. Jonjo, go out and play with Max and stop pushing our Eddie in the nettles while you’re out there, all right?Max and his brothers had been used to seeing Queenie with her mouth turned down, wearing drab unflattering gear, cursing Dad as the useless waster sat there in his armchair, reading the Racing Post and smoking roll-ups. As I’d suspected, there was violence from the very beginning, but it is never too graphic, thankfully, and is always secondary to the main theme of Max and Annie’s relationship, and to development of the characters.

But the great thing about life is, even painful events pass, and if you make bad choices, hopefully you learn from them. Mostly the owners jumped at the chance, not realising they’d been set up, so Max started earning better. And finally, miraculously, I found my writing voice and Annie Bailey sauntered into my head and stopped there. Queenie wouldn’t miss him – Max knew that – but Dad had earned a bit on the Corona lorries sometimes and now they didn’t have even that small wage coming in. Smartspot Ltd and their associates reserve the right to refuse to purchase any items at their sole discretion.To say this is an excellent book is an understatement it is full of emotion, anger and love and fans will love it. Jonjo might have given it a shot, if only he’d had the merest bit of self-discipline, which he did not. I'm aware of some of her previous books, but I hadn't read any of them, but found that it didn't matter as this worked as a stand alone. Max started shifting dodgy motors around the manor and sold as much stolen gear as he could lay his hands on, like the big load of nicked police shoes that he offloaded in Smithfield meat market. After binge-watching both seasons of Gangs of London I was in the zone (The Zone aka The Grey: where one’s moral compass undergoes a slight re-alignment!

Thanks to Courtney Jefferies of ed-pr for inviting me on this blogtour and to publishers Hodder for the copy of the book. When I knew I was holding this story, this fabulous story of conflict and hate and desire, in my hands and that someone had to put it into print. As the two threads come together, taking us up to the present-day action, the danger intensifies, for Annie, Max, their daughter Layla and even for long-lost brother, Bruno – whom Max still knows nothing about! So he carried on trying everything he could to alter the family situation, and Queenie carried on cleaning and going out to her job down The Grapes, first just evenings and then lunchtimes too. There is a wheen of bad language, too, but you couldn’t have an authentic story about East End gangsters without that, so I had no objection to it.

Seven books about her followed, and three about another very gutsy heroine Ruby Darke, and seven stand-alone novels too. And as the man of the house now, the head of the household, Max was making up his own rules as he went along. The ability to comment on our stories is a privilege, not a right, however, and that privilege may be withdrawn if it is abused or misused. The story zips along, love, death and betrayal in equal measure, bad boy comes good, family is everything and I feel there’s more to come.

Two years between each of them, and although Queenie was skint for a great part of the time – the war was not long over and there was still rationing – she made sure her boys wanted for little. Tone Barton’s father earned good money around Bermondsey on the docks, and for a while it looked like Tone might follow his dad into that, because it paid well enough. The only man – ever – who could make a purring pussycat out of the snarling tigress she knew herself to be. Prior to smartspot_ie receiving such items, the risk of loss and title for such items remains with you until smartspot_ie receives such items. Meanwhile, Max and his wife Annie, now separated, both find themselves under threat – Annie is attacked by an unknown assailant; a young boy who once saved Max’s life is horribly poisoned; Max’s best friend Steve is found hanging from a bridge in a murder made to look like a suicide.

Whenever it seems he has found happiness, it is snatched away – to my surprise, his was the story that pulled me most into this book, over the fast-paced plot and Annie and Max’s continuing, volatile relationship.
