Following the Wall Street Crash, Matty Gilbie flees home from New York to Bermondsey, her acting dreams in tatters and her life in danger from the mob. He promised her the earth. She found herself in hell. Handsome Frank Rossi took Matty Gilbie away from her working class roots in Bermondsey, East London and promised her fame and fortune. In America, the Cockney Canary would become a movie star. As his wife, she would be half of a power couple, feted and adored by all. But the Wall Street Crash of 1929 puts paid to all that, and as Frank becomes more violent and unstable, Matty flees in the dead of night. Once home in Bermondsey, she goes into hiding and starts desperately looking for work. But only Peak Freans, the hated biscuit factory, is hiring staff. Then, as a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, Matty learns that Frank is on the move, determined to find her and get her back.

Reviews

'A compelling read' My Weekly. 'Wonderfully descriptive ... a must-read for those who enjoy a thriller' OK Magazine. 'Gibson has done a wonderful job mixing the old and new elements in this story ... The cat and mouse game weaves a thread throughout the narrative, culminating in an explosive finale which will have readers frantically turning the pages to see what happens' The Bookbag.
