Dark and dangerous, GOODNIGHT LADY by the 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) and Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Martina Cole features the powerful, beautiful and fearless Briony Cavanagh, London's most infamous businesswoman, and mistress of her own fate...
In the sixties, Briony Cavanagh ran a string of the most notorious brothels in London. Only Briony knew what went on behind those doors, and she never opened her mouth - unless she stood to benefit. Only Briony knew the painful road she'd travelled to get there. From an impoverished childhood that ended with shocking betrayal, she was determined to be mistress of her own fate. But along with success came risk and danger. And the Goodnight Lady had her own secret place that was always shadowed by loss.
