A daughter of the Windrush generation, Janice grew up in a family struggling to bridge thousands of miles of separation. Her parents worked hard to build a new life in Britain. Then, aged just 15, angry and alienated Janice ran away. Groomed to work as a shoplifter in London's West End, Janice entered a glamorous underworld of champagne, beautiful possessions - and drugs. Dressed in designer clothes, with two enormous mobiles in her Gucci handbag, on the street she became known as 'the Empress'. But after years of this life, Janice was caught and sent to prison. She lost everything - her possessions, her partner, her daughter. When she'd served her time, south London had changed. Her former contacts were dead or inside. In one last roll of the dice, she staked everything on a million pound drug deal which would make her the Empress once again. This is her story.
Very talented writer, thoroughly enjoyed the book. Need to read more of her work.
