Piatkus, hard­back, 458 pages, €23.49 Lolly’s mother An­gela doesn’t take much care of her, and is con­vinced she’s be­ing watched and that her neigh­bours think she is to­tally batty.

When An­gela dies, be­lieved to have thrown her­self off the tower block they live in, Lolly is left alone and has to fend for her­self. Busi­ness­man Mal Fury — who clings to the hope that his in­fant daugh­ter Kay, who dis­ap­peared years ago, is still alive — hears about this mys­te­ri­ous or­phan.

Could she pos­si­bly be Kay? And can he and his beau­ti­ful if bit­ter wife Es­ther in­te­grate this strange child into their lives? And can Lolly find out the real story of her strange mother and her back­ground?

Mys­tery lite with a strong East End Lon­don ac­cent.
