Diamonds are always formed under pressure...

Orphan girl Alice dreams there's more to life than toiling long hours in Pink's jam factory. Inspired by stories about the legendary Queen of Thieves, Mary Carr, who terrorised the streets of Victorian London, Alice decides to set up her own gang: The Forty Thieves.

Sly seamstress Kate Felix from Whitechapel persuades Alice they'd make the perfect team and before long, the pair are making headlines in the glitzy world of 1920s Soho with their criminal sprees.

A life of crime means they soon make some powerful enemies, and Alice must sacrifice more than she ever thought if she is to be crowned Queen of Diamonds.

But the toughest and most beautiful diamonds are formed under pressure.

From squalid slums and the grim confines of Holloway Prison to the glittering nightclubs of London in the roaring twenties, Queen of Diamonds is a fast-paced, gritty story of love, loss and loyalty to the gang.

The third in a thrilling new crime saga series about a real-life gang girl from Sunday Times bestselling author Beezy Marsh, Queen of Diamonds is perfect for fans of Sam Michaels, Martina Cole and Jessie Keane.
