‘A cracking good read’ Jessie Keane

‘I was hoping you’d be able to help me. I’m looking for my baby.’

Casey Edwards has demons to put to rest. Since she had to give away her baby at 15, she’s been lost in booze and bad company. But now she wants to find her child and put things right...

Heading to Soho, Casey meets former gangster Vaughn Sadler, an old-school hard man who can still handle himself – and anyone else. There’s a spark between Vaughn and Casey but she can’t let herself get hurt, not again.

To find the truth, Casey must enter the dark world of London’s gangland: hard drugs, vice, even people trafficking. Soon she discovers that mob boss Alfie Jennings and sadistic psycho Oscar Hardings are plotting something dangerous, something brutal. Something that puts Casey – and her child – in serious trouble . . .

‘A thrilling and gripping novel.’ Roberta Kray

Full of strong women, devious gangsters and compelling twists, Taken is a compulsive read perfect for fans of Jessie Keane and Martina Cole.

A story of lies, secrets and deadly mind games

Brilliant American psychology student Madison Faber is in police custody - a potential murder suspect. Two hours ago she found her roommate lying in a pool of blood.

Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is assigned to investigate the case on behalf of the US embassy. Tasked with supporting a terrified Madison Faber and uncovering the truth behind her friend's death, Ingrid quickly discovers a sinister extremist group operating out of Faber's London college.

Up against the obstructive attitude of the Metropolitan Police and defying the wishes of the embassy, Ingrid must navigate through a minefield of fear and mistrust to discover the killer's true identity. But in order to ensure justice is served, she is forced to operate so far beyond the law that she may never get back again.

If you love books by Lee Child and Michael Connelly, and you've been waiting for an FBI heroine to rival Clarice Starling and Dana Scully, the Ingrid Skyberg FBI Thriller series might be just what you're looking for.

A NEW FBI HEROINE

Fresh Doubt is the second in a series of thrillers set in the American embassy in London. If a US citizen gets into trouble, Agent Skyberg is on hand to fix things - by any means necessary.
