Gritty and gripping saga set on one of London's most notorious streets, from the author of The Street and Coronation Day.
She's a good girl - in a bad world...
Lucy Keiver has come back from service in the country to London's notorious Campbell Road. She's there to care for her mum, the forthright and feisty Matilda, recovering after a savage attack almost left her for dead.
Despite the Great Depression affecting the country, Lucy is lucky to find a job as a Lady's maid. But when she is unfairly dismissed, Lucy is forced to take a job in a seedy nightclub - something nice girls just don't do. Meanwhile, for the Finch family up the road, their father Eddie's criminal dealings are about to land them all in hot water, especially his attractive daughters, Kathy and Jennifer.
When Lucy realizes that there is something rotten going on at the heart of the club, she is soon caught up in London's criminal underbelly. Can she trust the handsome stranger who offers her protection? Because when times are tough, some people will do anything to get by...

Brilliant read! Really takes you through a journey of hardship love hate etc. Was gripped from beginning to end!!!
This book was excellent, I didn't want it to end. Reading it made me feel like I was living in the era the book was set in.

What a wonderful read...having been born near this area l could see the places and people as described, could not wait to read a few more chapters each night but was so sad when l finished it.
loved this book the sort you pickup and can't put back down, the setting and characters really come to life, it's as if you can see it and breath it. Wonderful.
