SHE'S BEEN BETRAYED. SHE WANTS REVENGE.

Judith Jonson has been a widow for five years. At first she dreamt Dan would return, but with the war over she's had to accept her beloved husband is never coming home.

Then one day she sees a picture in the paper - the aftermath of a dramatic robbery in London's West End - and Judith can't believe her eyes. It's Dan, she'd stake her life on it. Or his life rather, the back-stabber.

Judith begins a hunt for the man she thought she married, and in amongst the lowlifes of the East End's gangland underworld she finds more than she bargained for. But Judith had better be careful; the rule of law doesn't apply in Kellston. She's been deceived, but she doesn't want to end up dead...

A perfect family, in a perfect house living their perfect lives. But perfect surfaces can hide dark undercurrents and behind closed doors lies a very different story.

Too afraid to speak out, Zane does his best to protect his sister and counts the days until they can finally be free. One dark, brutal night when their father's temper takes a horrifying turn for the worse, the perfect façade is exposed for the lie it is and Zane and Britt manage to escape. With the help of their beloved aunt, they rebuild their lives a day at a time, creating new families and putting their past behind them. But a childhood like that can cast a shadow the length of a lifetime. Can Zane and Britt ever be free of their past? Or will those dark undercurrents rise to the surface, forcing them to fight for their lives once again...

Her monster of a brother will never let her go, but Vittorio has no intention of losing the woman whose shadow matches his own . . .

The attack will be swift and silent, a lesson in efficiency. If you're going to do a job, you have to do it properly. It's a satisfying feeling having everything in place. I know there's always room for error, but careful planning goes a long way towards a successful outcome. The devil, as they say, is in the detail. Ava Gold is in trouble. Holly is still missing, there are now two dead bodies, and Chris Street is in the frame for at least one of those murders. Then there are the anonymous notes she keeps receiving, not to mention that Lee Bullen won't leave her alone. She knows that she should tell the police what she knows about Holly, but there's so much going on she doesn't know what to deal with first. And that means she's too distracted to notice that the most dangerous threat is getting closer and closer . . .The final part of The Payment is also available to download now!Read what people are saying about Roberta Kray: 'Once you start to read you can't put it down' 'Full of twists and turns' 'Love this writer, great read' 'Brilliant and gripping from beginning to end'
