This is the sixth book in the Annie Carter series and I sure that there are legions of this author's work who devour her books as soon as they hit the bookshelf. As this was my first book by this author and therefore my first foray into the complicated world that Annie Carter inhabits, it must be said that I struggled with the story. Not because the writing lets it down, far from it, the plot and characterisation are very good, as the author clearly knows how to target her book towards her audie ...more

Go me, another book read from my back log of books. Good old Amazon informed me I'd purchased this book in 2016, I really thought I was up to date with this series, but clearly I wasn't. It was only after I'd just read LAWLESS that I decided to check what other outstanding books I had by this author and come across this one.
I've loved my little Jessie Keane binge, it's cemented again my thoughts that this lady certainly can write a page turner. Annie Carter at her best, this book I have read in

Mmmmm, I had kind of mixed feelings about this book but ultimately it was still a cracking read. It's been (covers head in shame) 5 years (yes you read that correctly) since I last read a Jessie Keane and I was a little concerned at how relevant it would feel in my mind. However, that little worry was unfounded as the minute I started reading it all came rushing back. What I would say is that to really enjoy this book you are better reading the series in order to allow you a little bit more back ...more

Annie Carter Series No.6

Stay Dead is the heartstopping sixth book in Jessie Keane's bestselling Annie Carter series. Annie Carter finally believes that life is good. She and Max are back together and she has a new and uncomplicated life sunning herself in Barbados. It's what she's always dreamed of. Then she gets the news that her old friend Dolly Farrell is dead, and suddenly she finds herself back in London and hunting down a murderer with only one thing on her mind ...revenge. But the hunter

My first Annie Carter story ... I like the main character, Annie Carter, even though I am starting on book 6 of the series. I wasn't aware that this is book 6, there were plenty of flashbacks to let the story stand alone. Annie Carter comes across as a very strong woman, with a high enough push factor, to stand her in good stead among the boys she is running with.

Brilliant

I have read an enjoyed every book so far written in this series.
I was pulled into the story right from the start and stayed there until I had read the last word on the page.
This book has a lot going on but it is easy to keep up with.
I highly recommend this series. I feel you do need to read them in order or you won't know what is going on.

Another great book that gives us more in the lives of Annie and Max Carter. Enough detail to draw the picture of the scenes but not OTT in the gore. We say goodbye to one of the main characters from the previous books, as well as seeing where loyalties lay. A nice twist as well, which could be seen as obvious but well written and developed new and old characters.

I LOVED it!! Jessie Keane can spin stories and each plot was well entwinned with no loose ends. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it was certainly worth the wait. Was difficult to source as it never popped up in the supermarkets or bookstores near me which I found strange! Definitely best read in a long time. Well done Jessie :)

Excellent. Another great instalment in the Carter series of East End gangland stories. Revisiting old characters and resolving some unfinished stories from previous books. Recommend Jessie Keane books to everyone!

I love Annie Carter and this finishes up loose ends on her marriage to Italian Mafia boss and his death. Shocking death at start of a loveable character but vengeance is sweet.

I LOVE ANNIE CARTER

I love reading about Annie Carter - Jessie,s way of writing bring her characters to life brilliantly. When I read any of her books it's almost like I'm watching a TV series which by the way someone should take note and definitely make Annie Carter come to real life mmmmm I wonder who could play the dashing Max

Loved it as I have all of Jessie keanes books.
Annie is always in trouble and she's always making mistakes but she's a heart of gold and is very feisty.
I loved the twists and turns and the fact that we were kept guessing as to who was behind poor dollies demise.

Now what about me? I’ve done a lot of writing, but way back before I even dreamed I could be a professional writer I was just the youngest in a big family. My Dad was a surveyor with an edge of brilliance. My Mum was from gipsy roots and used to drive around in a goat-cart (yes, really!) when she was little. Once we were rich (although I didn’t know it then, and it was all thanks to my Dad’s ingen ...more
