Hope Randall has lived a quiet life—but with news of a half-sister who needs her help, that peace is about to be broken
When a stranger turns up on her doorstep telling Hope she has a half-sister, her instinct is to turn him away. But Michael Flint won't give up that easily—he believes Hope's sister Connie is in serious trouble. Connie's childhood was a world away from Hope's comfortable upbringing—she endured poverty, hardship, and abandonment, and her future doesn't look much brighter. The father the girls shared, who Hope can't even remember, was murdered 12 years ago. If Hope doesn't care about Connie, who will? To find her sister, Hope must enter the dark underworld of the East End, full of violence and vice. She'll have to toughen up, and fast. It turns out that Connie had links to the notorious Street crime family. With a killer on the loose targeting working girls, will she be the next victim? Hope has to do everything she can to find her sister—even if it involves getting close to the enemy.
