Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Jenna inherits a nightclub from her father. Despite no business background, she decides to give it a go. Enter Tony, a gangland boss on the run, add Leonard, a washed-up politician and throw in a posse of dodgy coke dealers, lap dancers and closet gays and you have the making of an explosive situation. Great, gritty, urban thriller gangland stuff with female interest.

Comparison: Martina Cole, Lynda La Plante, June Hampson.

Synopsis

The Club by Mandasue Heller

Zenith has a prime location at the heart of fashionable Deansgate - and Jenna Lorde`s inheritance has all the goodwill that any nightclub owner could hope for. The opening night is the high point of the social year, as everyone who is anyone begs for invitations.

Jenna believes she can make it a success - but she knows less than she thinks about running a club. And some of her colleagues at Zenith have ambitions of their own that don`t include Jenna.

As the tension mounts, three men offer to help. One is out for himself. One wants to protect her. And one of them offers to help her deal with the sleazy criminals who are threatening both Zenith and Jenna. Which of them can she trust?
