Crime is a man's business, so they say, though not according to Queenie Dove. A self-proclaimed genius when it comes to thieving and escape, she reckons she's done pretty well. Yes, she had a tough childhood in London's East End. But she survived the Blitz, learned how to get by on her wits, and soon graduated from shoplifting to more glamorous crimes. Daring, clever and sexy, she thrived in the Soho of the Krays and the clubs of Mayfair, fell wildly in love, and got away with it all.

Or did she? For beneath Queenie's vivacious, unrepentant account lies another story. To the end, she believes she was lucky, but did she simply play the hand that fate dealt her?

Listener Opinions

    " I really liked this book. I kind of thought that the backstory to the crime/romance plot (part one being all about Queenie's childhood) might be boring, but turned out to be an excellent examination of the survival of a child in WWII-London, who could not rely on her parents to protect her and her sibling(s). "

    " Jill Dawson has a wonderful way of writing and making you see, feel and hear everything - a superb story, which left me missing Queenie Dove and her adventures. "

    " Excellent! Well-written tale of a spunky and clever young East End girl growing up in the Depression and WWII who became a spunky and clever criminal. But it's so much more than that. The voice of the protagonist is amazingly authentic-sounding and her life story is heartbreaking. You don't condone what she does, but you just can't hold it against her. The Cockney sound and rhythm are spot on throughout and fascinating in their own right. I've already put another by Jill Dawson on my library request list. "

    " In the beginning I found it difficult to enjoy the book. The second half of it was a lot better, even though the ending wasn't very clear, and it slightly felt like something was still missing. "

    " interesting characters, great writing, good pace. I would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/25/2013

    " An insight into how people try to better things for their loved ones and themselves, set against the backdrop of post-war crime, from Soho gangsters to East End thieves, weaving in Ruth Ellis, the Profumo Affair and other Great British criminal landmarks along the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esther | 12/20/2013

    " An enjoyable book with an interesting sort of a twist at the end, but not up there with my favoutites. "

    " I had greater hopes for this book than it delivered. However, it was an interesting character study. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgana | 8/29/2013

    " Jill Dawson gives narrator Queenie Dove such a vivid, rollicking voice - this one just rolls along on the strength of it. I really enjoyed this, and I loved her optimism, resourcefulness, and sharp observations. Good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 6/30/2013

    " My first novel on my new Kindle! Found the time period/ her situation interesting- civilian London during/post WW2. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katy | 4/29/2013

    " Meh...this started with a lot of promise but I got so bored by the end. Queenie is a decently likable character but everyone else is terrible. "

    " Enjoyed the story, felt that Dawson created a believable voice and also captured the setting/time period as well. That said, I didn't really end up rooting for Queenie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty Dickie | 9/23/2012

    " I really hated this book and finished it only because I am reviewing it. My reaction is purely emotional because the book is well written, clever, and chronicles a side of British post war life rarely viewed by Americans. But the people are really sorry, the morals twisted and the story endless. "
