DIRTY GAME by JESSIE KEANE
Adultery, murder and dangerous love collide in Jessie Keane’s gritty debut novel.
For longer than she cares to remember Annie Bailey has lived in the shadow of her older sister Ruthie. Now Ruthie has her hands on Max Carter, the much feared head of the Carter family and a top class villain.
Seducing Max wasn’t a problem, but the guilt, shame and anger of rejection afterwards was.
Annie has unwittingly placed herself between two rival gangs and upset too many people, and these kind of people don’t forget. But as everyone knows, Annie Bailey is no ordinary woman.
