About this deal

Then one of her friends who worked down The Grapes was off sick, and the landlord said she’d suggested Queenie for a stand-in. Having been used to a married life full of nothing but dull misery, she could admit – only to herself, mind – that she had gone a little wild when all that was over.

Thanks to Courtney Jefferies of ed-pr for inviting me on this blogtour and to publishers Hodder for the copy of the book. Never Go Back is the glamorous and gritty new gangland thriller from acclaimed bestseller Jessie Keane. She’d smile, dabbing on red lippy and blusher before leaving Eddie and Jonjo in his care, who invariably started fighting. So he carried on trying everything he could to alter the family situation, and Queenie carried on cleaning and going out to her job down The Grapes, first just evenings and then lunchtimes too. Meanwhile, Max and his wife Annie, now separated, both find themselves under threat – Annie is attacked by an unknown assailant; a young boy who once saved Max’s life is horribly poisoned; Max’s best friend Steve is found hanging from a bridge in a murder made to look like a suicide.Jonjo, go out and play with Max and stop pushing our Eddie in the nettles while you’re out there, all right?

I give this novel 5 stars and you deserve more I would also recommend this book to friends and family well done jessie keane. The narrative raced along, introducing us to all the main players and fleshing out their lives as they clawed and fought and sometimes killed their way out of poverty. I really enjoyed how she plays skillfully with the push and pull of characters intimately tied to one another with a lot of baggage to work through.From the beginning, you can’t help but feel sorry for that little scrap of humanity with the strawberry birthmark, unloved and unwanted, and desperately seeking his place in a lonely world. We then skip forward in time, Max and Annie have married…and divorced, separated from each other for more than a year they are still drawn to each other like moths to a flame. As the two threads come together, taking us up to the present-day action, the danger intensifies, for Annie, Max, their daughter Layla and even for long-lost brother, Bruno – whom Max still knows nothing about! Annie was a dark-haired, red-faced little scrap, newly born, who bawled the place down night and day.

You understand, accept and agree that smartspot will ONLY ever honour valuations that it generates and provides. Sensing his wife’s preference for her eldest son, Max’s dad was often tempted to give the bolshie nipper a smack. I would be so interested to read another book and find out how his relationship with Max will progress. So now – as well as the cleaning stuff during the day – she’d got this new evening job too, as a barmaid.

Her husband had at least managed three good things in his life – he’d given her delicate baby Edward, and Jonjo the rough-and-tumble middle son. From the first page to the last and you can still do another sequel to this book Every time I read your book I feel like I'm actually playing one of the characters . Tone Barton’s father earned good money around Bermondsey on the docks, and for a while it looked like Tone might follow his dad into that, because it paid well enough. She said: “I wrote this straight crime thriller and I was very poor at the time and huddled under a duvet on the sofa writing this thing. He’s so bloody scrawny, he’ll get knocked to fuck,’ said his dad, laughing, relishing the idea of the pushy little sod getting a pasting.

As a child I’d scribbled down stories, or told stories in needlework class, or put on puppet shows I’d scripted. Both his brothers are dead, but he still has good men around him in London, and now might be a good time to gather his ex-wife and daughter into the fold to protect them from harm.Suddenly, free of matrimonial tedium, she felt like a woman again and it was wonderful; men paid her attention.
