Sean O'Donnell, small-time villain and loyal family man, walked out on his family 19 years ago and hasn't been heard of since.
Now his daughter Iris has returned to the East End in the hope of finding out what happened. But it isn't going to be easy. Everyone close to Iris, including her mother, seems intent on keeping the truth hidden.
With the rest of her life in a mess, Iris struggles to make sense of her murky family history. But a chance meeting with the mysterious Guy Wilder changes everything. Son of the local criminal matriarch, Guy has plenty of problems of his own but there's something about Iris that makes him more than willing to help her search for the truth.

Would you try another book from Roberta Kray and/or Annie Aldington?

Doubtful.....just didn't like the slowness of the story.

What was most disappointing about Roberta Kray’s story?

I didn't like the Narrator and the story was too slow moving for me.

What didn’t you like about Annie Aldington’s performance?

She had a whiney voice!

What character would you cut from The Villain's Daughter?

I didn't finish the book so it would not be fair to make a suggestion

Any additional comments?

I was very disappointed
