Annie Carter was a madam in a brothel and a New York gangster's moll, but now her protection is gone and her enemies are closing in
In 1971, London gang boss Annie Carter Barolli is living the New York high life with the feared mafia godfather Constantine Barolli. When family tragedy strikes, it leaves only Annie, Constantine's sister Gina, and his three children alive, and now they're in terrible danger. What's worse is that it signals a major shift in mafia power. Annie returns to London with her daughter Layla, pursued by a hit man. Someone wants her dead and the only way she can stay alive is to find out who's paying for the contract and to strike first. Then, the reappearance of an old East End face sparks a shocking suspicion—the possibility that Max Carter, Annie's first and greatest love, didn't die two years ago, as she had been led to believe. Has he truly just been playing dead?
