Just waking, feeling heavy with all the bandages and the cramping in her stomach; ah, God, she felt so weak, so drained. And there was Constantine, standing at the end of her bed. Constantine at all, it was a blackened shell of a human being; there was smoke coming off this poor semi-incinerated thing, this monster. Its mouth opened, and dust and ashes poured from i. he tried to scream; couldn’t. Hey, wonder what’s in this one? it said in a voice like gravel, the words echoing around inside her head; and then the awful thing seemed to fall apart, its form.

Playing Dead (Paperback). Jessie Keane (author). Praise for Jessie Keane: & is a riveting story, with gutsy, gritty characters and a genuine feel for the period. cracking story from a great new writer' Mandasue Heller.

Annie Carter was a madam in a brothel and a New York gangster's moll, but now her protection is gone and her enemies are closing inIn 1971, London gang boss Annie Carter Barolli is living the New York high life with the feared mafia godfather Constantine Barolli. When family tragedy strikes, it leaves only Annie, Constantine's sister Gina, and his three children alive, and now they're in terrible danger. What's worse is that 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?
Comments to eBook Playing Dead
I liked it but I didn't love it
Again great characters ESP Alberto and Francis
However the book had too many stories and this made it confusing at times
On the bright side I can't wait for ruthless the next instalment
I read this book on three days. It kept me coming back every time I put it down. This is the second book in the line for me and I'm on to the next now
Great story - really enjoyed it but a little to short ending. Needed the 2nd book to fulfil the store.
This book was a book full of twist and turns at every page. Once I started reading just couldn't put the book down

If you haven't read the previous Annie Carter books, you should read them and not read this review as it will inevitably contain spoilers!

I (for some reason) was under the impression that Annie Carter was part of a trilogy only and that after the third book that was the end. How wrong (and secretly delighted) was I when I realised her new book was featuring the one and only Annie Carter.

As those who have read her previous books will know she is now married to Mafia Mob boss Constantine Barolli. The book takes us straight into the action of Annie in New York with her husband before tragedy strikes. I must admit that it only took me a matter of two or three chapters before I was drawn into Annie's world again hook line and sinker!

Annie's life is once again in turmoil and as she heads back to London she has no idea what is in store for her. We once again see the old faithful characters re-appear that have featured in her previous books such as her friend Dolly who now runs the clubs in London for Annie, as well as Ellie and Chris who run the brothels.

In addition to the older friends we meet the newer members of Annie's family in the form of her stepchildren, and what a bunch they are. Constantine's three children were fabulous characters and I absolutely hated two of them from the very beginning.

Added to Annie's pressures of her extended family is the re-appearance of her supposedly dead ex-husband Max which puts a completely different spin on what has happened in the series so far.

The story has incredible pace from the very beginning and we see a slightly more timid Annie try to get her life back together in London. In the beginning I was wondering what had happened to the feisty woman we met in the last three books but thankfully as she fights back to get her life together we once again see her character come back to life.

The book picks up pace nicely and the ending was brilliant (although I figured who the bad guy was around the halfway stage). Jessie Keane has yet again produced an outstanding book, and one that I think Annie Carter fans are going to love. Lots of twists and surprises all the way through, combined with brilliant writing made for a top notch read in my opinion. I suppose now all that's left to do is count the days until the next Jessie Keane release.

Highly recommended, although I would suggest starting at the first book in the series to gain the background of Annie Carter!
Finished this all too quickly! Fast-paced, gritty, real characters that get you involved in the story, and a great plot. Annie Carter returns in this sequel, but this time is stripped of her crime boss status and pursued by a hit-man to London. There she tries to get to the bottom of who is behind it all and get a step ahead of them. Great suspense, excellent action, and I can't wait for the next book from Jessie Keane!
Excellent book, read it!
