About The Book


It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge. 

A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer. 
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it. 

Join the chase. Then ask yourself…
Can there ever be only one winner? 


New on the scene were brothers Reggie and Ronnie Kray; and as they came to prominence in London, Hill decided to leave crime. Hill would stand there in his suede shoes, his double-breasted suit, his trilby hat and cigarette and Reggie Kray would admire him as his role model. William even witnessed Reggie claiming that during his early 20s, the man he wanted to emulate was now former gang boss Billy Hill, “He had a good, quick thinking brain” Reggie would say.

The Krays sought publicity and in doing so allowed a journalist, John Pearson, into their lives. They loved having their photograph taken whilst rubbing shoulders with celebrities, and Ronnie even claimed whilst in court for his murder trial that he’d “be having tea with Judy Garland” if he hadn’t been at court.
