Silence Hollingbrook works with her brother at the foundling home in the worst part of London. She loves all the children, but especially Mary Darling, who was left as an infant on the home’s doorstep. Silence becomes her mother. The most ruthless riverboat pirate in London’s underworld, Mickey O’Connor deliberately left his child with Silence. Now, his enemies have found out about Mary and Mickey kidnaps his own daughter to force Silence to care for her in his den. Nine months ago Silence went to Mickey for help, making a bargain that ruined her life. Mickey never forgot the night Silence spent in his bed. She is the good woman who yearns for the bad boy, but as danger closes in and Mickey faces the gallows there is a slim chance their love will set him free. (GRAND CENTRAL, Nov., 400 pp., $7.99)
