Francesca is back to face her demons but this time she is not alone.

                                                                     

The Vincents' nightclubs are popping up all over London.

The O'Connells' a gypsy family, plan to get their hands on the Palaces, but gypsies have no place in business... not the Vincents' business. Their hunger for revenge is driven by jealousy and greed. Disregarding the warnings and the rumours, of the disappearance of the entire McManners' family, the O'Connells plot a scam so cruel that even their own kind shuns them. Ruby Vincent is now fifteen, and she may look like her aunt Francesca, but she still has Jesse Right's blood running through her veins.

Turning her back on the family, she goes in search of the truth, but what she finds will haunt her... she should have left the boogie man to rot in hell.

                                 'When you've made your bed, you must lie in it'

A Vincent is dead and the police have no idea who the killer is. The notorious Ruthers, a villainous family caught up in drugs and prostitution, are the only link to the murder.
Dolly returns to England to do what she does best and unravels a web of lies.
With her family once more behind her, she will stop at nothing to exact her revenge.
But nothing prepares her for the most horrific discovery. The sinister secrets held within the judiciary are more disturbing than she could have ever imagined.
The true meaning of the 'Gentlemen's Club' will shock her to the core.
Older and wiser, Dolly comes face-to-face with her last living demon and this time she is taking no prisoners.

 

Controlled all her life by her religious mother, fifteen-year-old Kelly Raven commits the ultimate sin.

She soon discovers that running away to the cold, frightening streets of London is less harsh than her previous life.

A drug dealer, two fraudsters, and a prostitute are her new family now and she becomes the woman she was destined to be.

Little does she know that Eddie Raven is coming for her, but she is no sweet four-year-old child anymore and he is certainly no doting father.

The Raven's blood may run through her veins, but in her case, blood is not thicker than water.
