Overview

The most authentic novel of gangster family life ever written, from the No. 1 bestselling author.


The Bailey brothers are gangsters determined to make their mark in the world. Peter and Daniel are chalk and cheese in many ways - Peter's calm exterior belies his ruthless nature, while Daniel's penchant for spectacular violence is legendary - but together they are unstoppable. From the late seventies they rule London's East End and, when their sons join the business, it seems that no one can touch the powerful Baileys. Although it's never easy at the top; there is always someone waiting to take you down - sometimes even those closest to you . . . Lena Bailey is determined to shield her youngest child Tania from the Life. But when a terrible tragedy occurs, Tania's eyes are opened to their world in a way that forces her to make an irrevocable choice that will determine her future.

When I think your ready to see this message.....no lemme rephrase that. When I think Im ready for you to see this...ill tell you. But for now, I just need to write it down. I miss it all. Every last but of that month or so we talked....differently. I feel more distant honestly...well now anyways. I miss being able to just smile at your texts, to grin during class at yesterdays conversations. I sometimes remember past conversations, but not that often. I kniw I should be keeping a distance...and I know we are only friends....but I rally wish things went back to the way they used to be. But sometimes......i need to not cave into my wants. They could ruin lives of others and my own. Its so hard not to just....break down telling you everything about this. I almost did..three times. But I forced myself not to. Anyways.......i might show you this message, I might not. And I wish I could tell you it flat out but I cant
