Overview



A girl must reconnect with her outlaw roots in the second book of this gritty female thriller trilogy
 

Daisy Sullivan's father was one of London’s most infamous gangsters. Haunted by his violent death, she vows to live a respectable life—until the day her mom, who abandoned her when she was young and who she barely remembers, barges back into her life unexpectedly. It doesn't take Daisy long to realize that her mom is the queenpin of a prostitution ring with links to high society and the head of one of London's most feared underworld families—the Kings. Soon she is drawn into their next criminal act—a bank job. Soon she is running for her life and the only person she can trust is up-and-coming gangland bad boy, Ricky Smart. Now she has to use every dirty trick her dad ever taught her to stay alive.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mitchell's earnest follow-up to Geezer Girls focuses on Daisy Sullivan, a 26-year-old lawyer, who fondly remembers her late father, a notorious London gangster, even though she's "ashamed of the terrible things he'd done." When Charlie Hopkirk, Daisy's mentor at her law firm, dies suddenly, Hopkirk's law partner asks her to go through the dead man's office and keep an eye out for anything "interesting." Daisy finds a suspiciously locked medicine cabinet that proves to be but the first of many repositories of secrets. Daisy is later stunned to run into her birth mother, 42-year-old Stella King, whom she hasn't seen since Stella abandoned her 20 years earlier. She's even more upset to learn that Stella is a vicious madam, tied to one of London's most brutal crime families. A hunky ex-con with a hidden agenda lends Daisy a hand in a gangster thriller more likely to appeal to romance fans than to those seeking gritty accounts of mean streets. (June)
