Her dad’s a villain. She’s his princess.
And their world is about to crash.
For Terry, family is everything. But it’s far from perfect…
Billie Jo is the adored only child of wealthy villain, Terry, and Michelle, the drunken wife he hates. Knowing how much Billie Jo dreads her parents’ fights, Terry imagines that she’ll understand when he tells her he is going to leave Michelle to marry his pregnant secretary.
But fate is about to deal a terrible hand and change everything in a way Terry has not planned for, leaving Billie Jo’s protected world in tatters.
Set in a world of villains and chancers, Kimberley Chambers’ brilliant first novel is a rollercoaster read you will not want to put down.
He’s her son, but he’s no good. How far will she go for him?
Not all sons make their mother proud…
June Dawson has come a long way from her rough East End background.
She now lives in a nice little cul-de-sac in Rainham with her ultra-respectable husband and a lovely social life. But her world collapses when daughter Debbie announces that she is pregnant by her low-life drug addict boyfriend, Billy McDaid. June feels as though she is being sucked back into the world of villains and thugs she thought she had escaped forever.
But worse is yet to come. The baby – doted on by his violent and feckless dad – grows into the child from hell. He is mean, sadistic and out of control. Suddenly, the family is not just in crisis. It is in meltdown.
If you can’t trust your family…
A family at war. A mother who comes out fighting…
Maureen Hutton’s life has never been easy. Married to an alcoholic and stuck on a council estate in East London, she scrimps and saves to bring up her three children alone.

The only thing Maureen can do is to get rid of the betrayer, before it is too late.
