Description

Daisy Lane has finally found some measure of happiness - her nightclub is bringing in money, helped by her connections to notorious gangster Roy Kemp, and her children seem to be thriving. But then Daisy's fortunes take a spectacular fall when Roy decides to move his criminal empire to London. Roy's frequent presence in Daisy's club gave the place an air of glamour - and danger. Without him, the punters have disappeared and so too has the cash, leaving Daisy back where she started - struggling to make ends meet and keep her family together. Still, Daisy can take comfort in the fact that her son, Eddie, is growing up to be as courageous and spirited as his late father was. But Eddie's younger brother, Jamie, could not be more different. Jamie reveals himself to be a deeply disturbed young man, sadistic in nature and capable of the most brutal violence. But Daisy, fighting tooth and nail to save her business, is blind to what her son is becoming. It falls to Eddie to stand up to his brother and prevent his behaviour from spiralling fatally out of control. Meanwhile, there's a killer at work in Gosport - a handsome Italian who preys on lonely women, taking all they have and then leaving them for dead. It's Daisy who spots this nasty Casanova at work. She takes it upon herself to have him apprehended - with devastating consequences. JAIL BAIT is unashamedly gritty, rough-edged, violent and sexy - a cracking, unputdownable read.show more
