Murder, loyalty and vengeance collide in Jessie Keane’s gritty fourth novel.
Lily King has spent years behind bars
Convicted of murdering her husband, London villain Leo King, she hasn’t been missed. Everyone believes she got what she deserved, but Lily knows she was fitted up.
Now she’s out, and she doesn’t do forgiveness. In her absence, things have moved on and the old order has changed. But now she’s ready to reclaim her position as head of the King family.
Fuelled by vengeance, Lily King is back, and some people aren’t going to know what’s hit them.
