    "Right now?"

    "What other time do we have?"

    Summary

    Arabella Shelby is tired of the antics of her twin brother Tommy. She hates how she is always left on the back-foot of what is going on. As a fierce and intelligent force to be reckoned with, she knows she is more than capable of dealing with the more unsavoury side of the Shelby Company Limited.

    She's made a decision that if Tommy won't allow her to come out of the shadows, then she will make light of her own, elsewhere. But will a deal with the devil be the answer to her problems? Tommy has a proposition for Arabella and one that will see her tied to his most untrusting of business associates. Will Arabella take the plunge and start a new life in Camden, beside the most eccentric and sadistic bread makers and leader of the Jewish Gangs in London, Mr Alfie Solomons?

    Summary

    Everywhere people would go they would be told stories about an assassin on the streets of London under the name, Rioney Sicarius. A ghost, a shadow, a demon, waiting for people to offer money in return for killing who was needed to be killed. Anyone they would cross in London told them the same: when you make a deal with the assassin, it can be turned around quickly, making you the victim of the assassin if a better offer was made by a smarter and stronger man.

    Though, Thomas Shelby on the other hand soon starts investigating the so dangerous assassin while being in London. Discovering that the Assassins' real name is Rioney Gray and that Polly Gray's daughter, Anna Gray, had never existed. Polly had giving up hope and knew deep down that Rioney was dead, lying to Thomas that her 'dead' daughter was called Anna instead of Rioney so that Thomas Shelby would quickly have giving up the investigation thinking he had found out who she was and thinking he knew that her death was confirmed just by finding the wrong papers of a made-up girl. Slowly, he finds out that Rioney Gray is a famous singer living in the wealthy part of London, which is her cover for her nightly work.

    Summary

    Perhaps, being saved by woman hellbent on self-indulging foolery wasn't the greatest event that could have happened to him. Perhaps, saving a man that always put his own pursuits and ideas before all else wasn't the smartest decision she could have made. What could really go wrong when a Gypsy princess, Tilly Boswell, makes acquaintances with a Jewish mobster, Alfie Solomons? Time will always tell.

    Summary

    “I think she made me soft,” Grace smiled at him and leaned forward, arm extended over the table with her palm up. Thomas looked at it with curiosity for a moment.
    “You’ve always been soft, Tommy,” she said softly, moving her fingers. “But broken edges are sharp, aren’t they? It takes a while to smooth them, and the right person - it couldn’t be me,” slowly, he placed his hand over hers.
    “I guess you’re right,” he nodded. For all the anger he’d had towards her, Tommy had come to understand her and what she’d done. “The past is in the past?”

    Summary

    After the war, the only emotions Alfie could readily relate to was anger and rage. He could remember stepping off the train once it made its final stop in London, feeling a sudden inexplicable anger and rage bordering on violent, and it has stuck with him since. He embraced those feelings; let the violence and the rage carry him to be the man he was today.

     

    Then Thomas Shelby waltzed into his life.

    Summary

    When the dark wood fell before me
    And all the paths were overgrown,
    When the priests of pride say there is no other way
    I tilled the sorrows of stone.

    I did not believe because I could not see
    Though you came to me in the night,
    When the dawn seemed forever lost
    You showed me your love in the light of the stars
