‘Joan’s got something to show you.’ She rummaged in a drawer for a moment, pulled out a
piece of paper and handed it to me. ‘Constance Street,’ she said. ‘As I remember it.’
And as my great-aunt showed me the hand-drawn plan of Constance Street in the 1930s, so began the stories of one street and the true-life tales of my family, a tight knit group of working-class women in Silvertown in the East End of London, all set against a backdrop of hardship, struggle and war.

London is a tough place to be a cop – and John Carlyle is nobody’s idea of a hero.
Terrorist attacks, feuding gangsters, religious charlatans and naked bike riding protests that descend into violence – the long-suffering inspector has to deal with them all. Meanwhile, Seymour Erikssen has just slipped through his fingers, again; ‘London’s most unsuccessful criminal’ is back picking the pockets of the wrong people while the media are up in arms about the police’s inability to keep him behind bars. Trying to keep his sergeant, Umar Sligo, on the straight and narrow is also proving to be impossible.
