Scarlet Women by Jessie Keane
  

Lovereading view...

1970’s gangland London with a very tough lady indeed, one Annie Carter, ruler of the East End. It is the third and sadly last in the series. It is violent and callous with lots of swearing, loose morals and bad behaviour but under it all Annie has loyalty and love to give, a business to run and a child to nurture. All these balls she juggles like a real pro. This feels very authentic – a cracking good read.

If you like Jessie Keane you might also like to read books by Gilda O'Neill, Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller.

Synopsis

Scarlet Women by Jessie Keane

She was a madam in a brothel, then a gangster's moll. Now Annie Carter owns the East End of London, and God help anybody that crosses her...It's 1970, London, and there's a killer on the loose. When gang boss Annie Carter gets a call, suddenly it's personal. A close friend of hers is the latest victim, and another is in the frame for the murder. With the hated Delaney gang still causing trouble, and NY mob boss Don Constantine Barolli's family making no secret of the fact that they hate her, she senses a feud blowing up in all their faces very soon. To save her old friend, Annie has to try to find out who's been targeting the girls. Before long she's diving head-first into the seedy underbelly of the streets. How long before the killer strikes again? And who will be the next victim?
