She's a good girl - in a bad world...
Lucy Keiver has come back from service in the country to London's notorious Campbell Road. She's there to care for her mum, the forthright and feisty but much loved Matilda, recovering after a savage attack almost left her for dead.
Despite the depression affecting the country, Lucy is lucky to find a job as a Lady's maid. But when she is unfairly dismissed, Lucy is forced to take a job in a rather unsavoury nightclub - something nice girls just don't do. Meanwhile, for the Finch family up the road, their father Eddie's criminal dealings are about to land them all in hot water, especially his attractive daughters, Kathy and Jennifer.
When Lucy realizes that there is something rotten going on at the heart of the club, she is soon caught up in London's criminal underbelly. Can she trust the handsome stranger who offers her protection? Because when times are tough, some people will do anything to get by...
