Plot Synopsis

Dani Fenton thought her life was sorted. But when her private and professional lives collide, she is forced to walk a dangerous line and risk everything for love. At home Dani has a loving partner with a young child who adores her. At work she is a powerful broker in London’s vicious gangland, where she uses her influence to negotiate deals between rival gangs at underground “meets”. Her intuition has never failed her and her charisma has attracted a loyal band of “soldiers” who would go to any lengths to please her. Life is good until Susanna returns. Enigmatic, sexual, hot-tempered and fragile, Susanna is irresistible to Dani, who soon finds herself in a spiral of obsession and violence that threatens to devastate every aspect of her life. Dani must choose between the love she has and the love she wants, and she knows the wrong decision could prove fatal.

About Veronica Fearon

Like the protagonist in her debut novel, Veronica Fearon was born in Hackney and grew up in Stoke Newington. Her journey across London as a criminal lawyer, gang worker and now youth offending worker has brought her into contact with some of the most dangerous and some of the most vulnerable people in the capital. Echoes of this can be seen in the characters penned in the DANI series.

The first book in the series, The Girl with the Treasure Chest was longlisted for the Polari first book prize, shortlisted for the Ultimate Planet awards and shortlisted for the Optimus cards Group literary prize for crime. The second book in the series is The Thirsty Stranger and the third The Dead Ringer is now in production.
