If she earns her living in a precarious way it’s to support her young son. In the end, she finds a way to escape London gangsters and start a new life…” – Cosmopolitan“As fizzy as the champagne ordered by the dancers for their customers in a smart yet tawdry nightclub… a sensational read.” – The Express“The bitter-sweet lives of the hostesses who sell themselves night after night in the shabby world of London’s nightlife. Erotic, dark, yet sparkling….’ Daily MailAnnie Ayre was born in the middle of a thunderstorm in the Himalayan mountain state of Kashmir, to a family of travelling actors. When she was twelve, her parents died on a frozen train during a blizzard in Russia. Nobody thought to tell Annie that she was an orphan. Forgotten for years, she remained at school until the nuns traced her paternal grandparents, writing that it was time she left school; they must claim her. Finally shipped home to Scotland, she was welcomed, but it was obvious from the crumbling ruin they lived in that the family was broke. She got work as a junior on a local newspaper and developed her early career in that field. These days she writes books set in the many places she has lived. Annie Ayre is her mother’s maiden name. She is also the author of A Year in Tuscany, Midnight Dancer and The Roar of the Tiger. Endeavour Press is the UK’s leading independent digital publisher.
