Product description


I loved the characters, they were very realistic, believable and I enjoyed their storylines. Annie Carter is a fantastic lead and I really enjoyed reading about her, I liked that Annie was fierce and determined. Also, Annie's relationship with Max was so fascinating to read about, that in itself was very compelling and gripping. Ruthless is fast-paced and thrilling with the right amount of tension and suspense, so I was kept turning the pages keen to find out how things would finish. * readinginthesunshine.wordpress.com * Part crime novel, part family-saga - a kind of Dynasty with knuckledusters - but Ruthless is slick and funny and polished. Sure, it's a formula, but Keane knows just what her readers want in her nostalgic tales of gals and gangsters, nightclubs and toerags, and she delivers the goods as nimbly as a cat across a fence top. What I Liked: Annie's a businesswoman with a string of clubs to her name, but it's affairs of the heart that propel the story. Keane's antagonists want revenge against Annie by targeting the people she loves the most - her family. It makes it very personal and very nasty for Annie. And the return of her ex-husband - 'fit lean body, black hair, dark tan' - makes the situation an emotional minefield. If you're going to write a story, make sure your protagonist is hit where it hurts the most. * crimethrillerfella.wordpress.com * Ruthless is the latest in the fast-moving Annie Carter series and is just as good, if not better, than its forerunners. If you like a good, light read on the seedy side of life, you won't be disappointed. * Shropshire Star * I've read most of Jessie's book and so I was thrilled to be contacted and offered a copy of her latest book Ruthless. Wow, what a book. * jayneanderson.blogspot.co.uk * Jessie Keane has once again created a brilliant, gripping and thrilling book which I didn't want to put down * Best Crime Books * This is riveting, unputdownable reading * Marjolein Books * Gripping right from the start and the setting of gangsters and East End London was great to read. I also really liked the character of Annie Carter, she's a likeable, feisty main character who takes you through her story at a high speed pace. This is a book full of suspense and tension and I found myself surprised by the narrative more than once. I'm now going to look out for the first Annie Cater novels and have no doubt that I'll enjoy them just as much. * Novelicious * The novel takes the reader on a journey from London, to New York, and across to rural Ireland. What I especially loved about this story was the way multiple story strands were woven together: a coming-of-age story for Annie's daughter, Layla, and an explosive battle of wills (and sexual tension) for Annie as she tries to keep an uneasy truce with her ex-husband; all set within a deadly game of cat and mouse with a determined killer driven by revenge. Intriguing, suspenseful and thrilling. A real page turner. * www.crimethrillergirl.com * Gritty and powerful, Martina Cole fans will love this addictive novel * Closer *
