Jessie Keane

Dubbed ‘Queen of the Underworld’, Jessie Keane is of Romany gypsy stock. Her father died when she was a teenager and she fled to London to escape grim reality, finding there a lifelong fascination with the criminal underworld and the teeming life of the city. She sold her wedding dress to buy a typewriter and penned her first Annie Carter book, Dirty Game. Within weeks of sending it out to agents, she had a three-book deal. Dirty Game was followed by five more Annie Carter books, all Sunday Times bestsellers, then Ruby Darke arrived in Nameless, Lawless and The Edge. Jessie’s stand-alone novels include Jail Bird, The Make, Dangerous, Fearless, The Knock and The Manor. Jessie lives in Hampshire with her partner.


Jessie’s first novel published by Hodder & Stoughton, Diamond, will be released in February 2022.
