About the Book

The Queen of Thieves is back! Queen of Clubs is the second in Beezy Marsh’s thrilling UK historical series about a ring of all-female gangsters in 1950s London.

London, 1957:

After rising up against gangland’s queen, Alice Diamond, formerly downtrodden Nell is living the perfect life of crime. Far from the East End slums where she was raised, she’s now an accomplished professional thief by day—lifting luxury goods from high-end department stores—and a glamorous nightclub owner after dark. Dressed in stolen silks and furs, Nell cuts a dazzling figure in the dimly lit clubs where she calls the shots. But a betrayal and botched robbery suddenly reverse Nell’s fortunes...and her old rival Alice is hell-bent on taking her down.

Nightclub dancer Zoe is finally earning a living after escaping a poverty-stricken childhood. She’d rather work for Nell than set scores for Alice. But the life of luxury Zoe craves comes at a terrible price. When a vicious gang tightens its grip on Soho, all three women realize it pays to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Critical Praise

“This was a fascinating look into post-World War II London. I had never heard of hoisters and their long history before. While almost every character was doing was wrong, it was hard not to like them. Everybody had a story and was pushed to do things they most likely wouldn’t have if times hadn’t been so tough. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about Nell and Alice since their story isn’t done yet. I definitely recommend this to fans of historical fiction.” — San Francisco Book Review on Queen of Thieves

Queen of Thieves is a rollicking good time...The period details of this novel are stunning…filled with sumptuous descriptions of stolen clothing, beautiful jewelry and accounts of London’s seedy underbelly… Queen of Thieves also has some truly Dickensian twists, turns. And both Nell and Alice get more than they bargained for in this raucous novel.” — The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA) on Queen of Thieves

“A colourful tale of love, lust, making good and revenge.” — The Sun (UK) on Queen of Thieves

“Gripping from the first page.” — The Lady (UK) on Queen of Thieves
