From the No.1 bestselling author of Tainted Love For more than a decade two East End families have been locked in a bitter war. On one side are the Mitchells, a notorious underworld mob from East London's Canning Town. They have an iron in every fire and will resort to intimidation and violence to get what they want. When Stanley Smith's lovely young daughter, Jessica, announces that she is to marry Eddie, the son of mob boss Harry Mitchell, Stanley is horrified, but too afraid to stand in their way. On the other side are the O'Haras. The Mitchells' biggest rivals are a travelling family who live in nearby Stratford. They compete with the Mitchells for pub protection and the two families hate each other. Caught between these two families at war, are two innocent children, who will grow up to love the wrong people and spark the last terrible act in the long-running feud. 1988 was a happy year in many people's lives. Some called it The Rave Year, others The Second Summer of Love. For Eddie Mitchell and his family it is neither. 1988 is the year in which his whole dangerous, violent world explodes around him.

He wants revenge not only for his daughter's imprisonment, but also for the death of his beloved wife, Jessica. Determined to get his grandchildren back home where they belong, Eddie plans the O'Haras demise slowly and precisely. But then he finds out a secret and learns the real reason why his daughter is in the slammer and all hell breaks loose.

Frankie struggles to adapt to their gypsy way of life, but when her daughter, Georgie, is born, things go from bad to worse. Jed's mother is a loud, brazen, domineering woman, who has always yearned for a daughter herself, and she begins to take over her baby granddaughter. Meanwhile Frankie's family and friends know that Jed is cheating on her, but blinded by love and a sucker for his charm, Frankie refuses to believe them. Then one day the unthinkable happens. Sick to the stomach at her discovery, Frankie for once sees Jed for what he really is. She realises that the man she loves is not only heartless, but also violent and dangerous. Petrified for the safety of herself and her family, Frankie plots the ultimate revenge. But can she actually go through with it?
