Some secrets won't stay buried... THE LOST
Private Investigator Harry Lind doesn't believe in ghosts. Little Grace Harper went missing over twenty years ago and missing girls can't just reappear. Or can they?

As Jess and Harry begin to unravel an age-old web of deceit and betrayal their discoveries put them on a collision course with Jimmy Keppell, one of London's most notorious gangsters. Their search for the truth, it seems, could cost them their lives.
NO ONE KNOWS CRIME LIKE KRAY
PRAISE FOR ROBERTA KRAY'S GRITTY CRIME THRILLERS
'Great writing, gripping story, loved it!'
'Well into Martina Cole territory'
'Action, intrigue. . . sure to please any crime fiction fans'
'A compelling mystery'
At the start of Kray's compelling, character-driven third London gangland novel (after The Pact and The Lost), Len Curzon, an alcoholic reporter interviewing a small-time villain in a local prison, notices a young woman visiting with a notorious older convict, Paul Deacon. The woman reminds him a lot of an eight-year-old girl, Grace Harper, who went missing 20 years earlier. Soon after making some indiscreet inquiries, Curzon is stabbed to death by an unknown assailant outside a pub. Meanwhile, PI Harry Lind, a crippled ex-cop, tries to track down a well-known crime czar's brother in-law, who's also disappeared. The two plot threads intersect when Jessica Vaughn, Curzon's friend and fellow reporter, has a boozy flirtation with Lind and persuades him that Curzon's murder isn't the random act of violence that the police assume. Kray captures the cadences and rhythm of underworld life, though some readers may feel some judicious trimming would have speeded up the action in spots. Still, fans of Derek Raymond and Ken Bruen will find much to admire.
