Annie Carter is back… She was a madam in a brothel and a gangster’s moll, but now her protection is gone and her enemies are closing in. 1971, London gang boss Annie Carter Barolli is living the New York high life with the feared mafia godfather Constantine Barolli. Then family tragedy strikes, leaving only Annie, Constantine’s sister Gina and his three children alive, and now they’re in terrible danger. And what’s worse – it signals a major shift in mafia power. Annie returns to London with her daughter Layla, pursued by a hit man. Someone wants her dead and the only way she can stay alive is to find out who’s paying for the contract and to strike first. Then, the reappearance of an old East End face sparks a shocking suspicion – the possibility that Max Carter, Annie’s first and greatest love, didn’t die two years ago, as she had been led to believe. Has he truly just been playing dead?

Brilliant book. First I've read by this author. Could not put it down. I did not want it to end and when it did, I felt at a loss, so went and purchased 4 more of her books.

having read my first jessie keane book I wanted to read others and started with the Annie Carter books Playing Dead being the second one. The main character Annie is strong, fiesty and yet has a soft vulnerable side and I was drawn into the character and had to find out what happened to her. I found it hard to put this book down and can't wait to read her adventures in the next book.
