About this deal

What a story this is to read, so fast pace and so full of history as we read Diamonds dynamic journey, it keeps you on the edge of your seat chapter after chapter, I loved it all. But when she gets there the city is not the beautiful one that her mother has portrayed in her stories. There is pain, love and hardship, life laid bare, it’s a real rip roaring piece of historical crime fiction. com have been hard at work compiling and sorting the official list of Jessie Keane newest books 2022, Jessie Keane new releases 2022/2023 and beyond.

Diamond Butcher is a beautiful girl and the daughter of Warren Butcher the head of the Wolfe gang who run the streets of Soho. Having grown tougher during her time in Paris, she soon becomes a force to be reckoned with, a feared and respected gangland queen. Briefly, born into the Butcher family who rule the streets around Soho her life is disrupted when her father is killed in a fight with the local Wolfe gang and her family’s lives are brutally changed with the arrival of her uncle.This gritty raunchy rollicking adventure has all sorts of dangerous twists and turns that keep you turning the pages. Slightly different for Jessie a tale set way back Pre War with the Butcher family, after a series of events eldest daughter Diamond flees to Paris where her mother is from. Diamond has all the things you would expect to find in gangland thriller, violence, a gritty plot, with a feared and respected heroine.

Victor is worse than evil and forces Diamond to take part in some of his vile plots to extort anyone he can. He bought out night clubs, billiard halls and boxing establishments and started making his fortune early on. Then he met her sister Annie – headstrong, bolshy, always up for a fight – and realised he’d married the wrong sister, and there was going to be hell to pay over it.Diamond Butcher is the daughter of Warren and Frenchie Butcher, and big sister to Aiden and Owen, who was brain damaged at birth. Thanks to Courtney at EdPr for the gorgeous gifted proof and finished copy 😍 in exchange for an Honest review.

Set at the beginning of the 20th century, Diamond Butcher has grown up with the constant backdrop of the feud between her family and the Wolfe family, a bitter tit for tat battle with shocking consequences.The oldest and only girl in a family of London thieves, reinvented as Diamond Dupree, the latest Paris ‘it girl’ - the lover of an aristocrat, fearless and beautiful she is so compelling and a great female character. This book had a fantastic story, lots of action and crime and will have you on the edge of your seat. If I had one one small quibble in parts, this book jumps from one character to another within the same paragraph which made the read feel disjointed in parts. This is not so much a gangland thriller as we have come to expect and is set in the era just after the first world war.

For fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers, as well as viewers of Peaky Blinders , this is historical crime fiction at its most compelling. What I love about them are her strong , gritty , no nonsense , direct , sometimes violent to reach the goal female characters , and she has created a crime queen in the character in Diamond. I can imagine more books featuring Diamond, taking forward the partnerships that she made in this one, but even if that doesn't happen I thought the ending was just right. Eventually, after suffering the death of both parents, her brother Aiden and miscarrying her baby, Diamond's life starts on its upward spiral and it looks like her life is changing for a more settled future.Warren's cruel brother Victor barges his way into their lives, he rapes their mother Frenchie nightly and beats the children.
