No-one gives Sharon a chance. Except Sharon. All she wants is a better life-a husband who takes care of her, the kind of food they have in magazines and civilized conversation. Is it her fault that she is in the middle of a plot involving two hitmen? Well, yes, actually. It is. Sharon woos like a female mantis: knowing that, when she's done, the man may have to die. Only an idiot would fall in love with her. But South London isn't short of idiots. In Sharon's deprived childhood, Buggy was Top Cat—the one everyone went in fear of. Buggy ruled the roost and Buggy’s girlfriend could be the Number One female. So she married him. Of all the mistakes she could have made, that is the biggest. But mistakes don't have to be final.
