Synopsis

'A cinematic, rogueish, and utterly entertaining page-turner by the queen of feisty historical women. Goes down in one jewel-fisted slug' Abigail Tarttelin, author of DEAD GIRLS 'A gripping, greasy, gritty thriller' Red 'An exceptional work of historical fiction' NetGalley 'Based on the real-life, all-female gang, the Forty Elephants, FIVE DAYS OF FOG is told with verve and style' Bookseller 'My mum always said, a fistful of rings is as good as a knuckleduster' As the Great Smog falls over London in 1952, Florrie Palmer has a choice to make. Will she stay with the Cutters, a gang of female criminals who have terrorized London for years and are led by her own mother? Or leave it all behind to make a safer, duller life with the man she loves? And what will she do if she's too crooked to go straight, and too good to go bad? Over the next five days, Florrie will have to find her own path and the courage to stumble along it - in a fog so thick that she can't see her own feet. Following the last days of a crumbling female gang in post-war London, this is a story of family, of love, of finding your way, and of deciphering a route through the greyest areas of morality. Praise for THE FAIR FIGHT: 'The Fair Fight is a hugely exciting and entertaining novel, written with warmth, charm, authority and, above all, terrific flair. I loved it' Sarah Waters 'This storming debut is fiction at its most absorbing. It'll be first in line for Freeman's next offering' Stylist 'A brilliant, bold and unforgettable debut. Freeman transports us to a history we'd never have imagined and makes it viscerally real' Nathan Filer
