The start of a new series set in London's gritty underworld, this urban noir was nominated for Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year
Ten years ago, 15-year-old Jade Flynn and three other girls were forced to become the sole occupants of the fourth floor of St. Nicholas Care Home for Children, forced to take part in 'special community projects,' and forced to work for a man they nicknamed 'The Geezer.' Finally, a shocking event made them rebel, and steal something that didn't belong to them. They ran, and they disappeared. Now Jade is living a respectable life as Jackie Jarvis. She's getting married, and her three best friends are her bridesmaids—but then the Geezer turns up. He'll kill them, unless they do one last job for him. Then they can return to their everyday lives. But can they trust him? This time if they disappear, they won’t be coming back.
