This book is the follow up from book 1 (Dirty Game) and book 2 (Black Widow). Once again Annie Carter is back in London and trying to run her husbands business. It's now the 70's and her arch enemy's the Delaney's are still around and running the brothel that her good friend Dolly runs. When prostitutes start getting killed Annie gets involved, wanting to know who is involved. In doing that she gets herself caught up in the middle of a war and puts her own life at risk. One of close friend's Chris Brown ends up being framed for the murders and Dolly want's to do everything she can to clear his name. Not only does she have to find the culprit, but she is working against her own boys who don't like answering to a woman. She is working at having to prove herself as the Boss and also manage looking after her business along with her young daughter Layla. When Constantine Barolli turns up it complicates the situation even further. He is a dangerous Mob Boss and Annie finds herself fighting off her real feelings for him in an attempt to keep her business at the top. Can she find the real killer before it is too late or will she end up having to identify another young girl?
This book was an absolute corker and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well worth the wait for the final instalment in the Annie Carter books. I didn't put this down once I'd started. The writing style and the fact that you know this is the conclusion keeps you turning page after page. The only negative is what to expect from Jessie Keane next. With her last three books being as good as they have been there are high expectations for the next one. I can't wait!
I'm sorry but that is something a school kid would say.
I would advice that u save ur money and time..... sorry Jessie 👎👎👎
Annie hunts down her friends killer by never giving up and always looking for the good in people. Set in gang war times she finds herself in some scrapes but always comes out of it just a bit shaken. Dolly her long time friend well makes things a little hard for her but she has her problems too.
Its a good read I have enjoyed the other 2 books as well but will continue to read the rest of the books as the story unfolds.
Love the Max and Annie stories.
Jessie Keane is a fantastic author. I adore her style of writing, as soon as I pick a book of hers up I don't want to put it down!
Credit where credits due and this lady needs it in bucket loads!!
Scarlet Women is just as good if not better than the first 2 books.
I would say if you're reading this review wondering if you should purchase the answer is you should. Only read Dirty Game first, and then Black widow. If you read them in order you will truly appreciate the characters in the book!
Happy reading folks.
