    Summary

    Ann observes – studies her.

    The mystery woman grabs one book from the shelf and fingers through it quickly. Even from the short distance, Ann can see her hands are strong yet feminine, a professional shade of dark red polish on her short, manicured nails. She presses one lightly against the binding as she reads – impatient yet focused – and Ann watches every tap and twitch of them as they slide along the book's spine.

    “We share a name.”

    “Do we? Well imagine that."

    Summary

    "See, this is why I didn’t tell you!”

    “You make it sound like I have no self-control, Marian,” Anne sighs tiredly over dinner, distractedly pointing across the table, “Pass me the mashed potatoes, will you?”

    “Sometimes I’m not sure you do!” Marian huffs, continuing to ignore her request, “She’s his teacher, Anne!”

    Summary

    Anne Lister has it all. Money, power, women: what more could an inner Halifax drug lord possibly want? Long answer: a loyal wife at her side as she travels Europe, from the buzzing nightlife of Berlin to the sandy shores of Barcelona; and her help in turning the tides of the ongoing gang war against her rivals: the Rawsons.

    Short answer: Ann Walker.

    [a re-imagining of the Gentleman Jack story, set in present-day England where Ann is still the same shy, rich Ann we know and love, but Anne is an even richer, badass drug dealer]

    Summary

    “I- um- we met at a gathering my parent’s company threw a few years ago. You talked to me and my sister for an hour.” Ann said and cleared her throat.

    “Oh that’s right!” Anne said, “You wore the most flattering dress, blue I think.”

    “White, actually.”

    Anne laughed and took her elbow off of the railing to lean in closer to Ann. “Whichever color, it looked marvelous.”
