“No-one uncovers the underworld like Jessie Keane. Jessie is the author or six previous bestsellers. She is starting her new series of novels with Pan Macmillan by introducing a new heroine called Ruby darke. Ruby is a feisty and ferocious female character who is battling to reclaim the children tken away from her at birth.”

 

Reviewer: Vicky, Rotherham

This really was a book that I couldn’t put down.  As a full time working mum I felt a little daunted by the sheer length of it as my leisure time tends to be seriously limited!  I need not have worried though as I found myself carrying the book around with me and dipping into it at every opportunity, I was totally gripped by the plot and the characters.The school run provided me with an opportunity to catch up on the characters, a time which I would usually have used to check work emails!

A gritty drama unfolds around the life of Ruby the central character.  The story lines are believable and the short chapters are written in a way that always leaves you wanting more.  The book skips through time which I would usually dislike but it is done in such a clever manner that this time I enjoyed the journey.

The book is incredibly well written and the author allows you to develop a real empathy for the characters.  When Kit, a central character was captured by Tito, a real villain, I became aware that my heart was actually pounding in my chest.  This is the first time I recall a novel having such an impact on me!

The only disappointment I had was when I had finished the book, I wanted more! This is not the usual sort of material that I would read but I was gripped from the very beginning right through to the end.  I would thoroughly recommend it.
