`Gritty and gripping' Kimberley Chambers You make a deal with the devil; you pay your dues... Franny Doyle has always known that her father Patrick has been up to no good.
After all you don't become one of London's number one gangsters without ruffling a few feathers along the way.
Still, she adores her dad and she knows that he would lay down his life for her - she is his number one girl and he has taught her everything she knows. But when something terrible happens to Patrick, Franny realises that he has some very dangerous enemies.
Delving into Patrick's past, Franny becomes involved in a high-stakes game.
She's not afraid. Patrick has taught her to be a fighter and she's determined to make him proud, even if it means paying the ultimate price - her own life.

Review by samarnold1975
Wow is the first thing that comes to mind as I finish this book. This is simply a stunning story told in an exceptional way. I have to say that this book hooked me from the first chapter which then led me to read the whole thing in just two sittings. The quality of the writing makes you progress through the book at great speed. At the end of the book I was almost upset at finishing it so fast as I would not be spending anymore time with my some of my favourite characters.It is the quality of these characters that makes this book so good. This is the second Jacqui Rose book I have read and on both occasions the quality of character development is what drew me to her writing. Both male and female characters are written with such expertise you find yourself equally drawn to them all. The female characters are portrayed as feminine with enough steel through them that they are engaging. The men are hard on the outside and soft in the middle. The skill of the writer is through her writing of these characters you clearly see their characteristics without being told.I also like the fact that there are a couple of characters that cross over from her other books in small cameo appearances. I love it when authors do this as it is almost a secret connection that the author used between herself and her fans. Harlan Coben is another author who does this with ease.This is simply a stunning book which crosses from Ireland to Soho. The second book I have read from this author and certainly not the last.
