Jacqui Rose is a British author born in Manchester in the United Kingdom. London is the city in which she lives now and she has lived in South Yorkshire and Manchester for a quite some time. When author Jacqui Rose was a kid, she used to write essays for her classmates and in return she used to charge them a packet of sherbet dips. This was the point where she realized her talent in writing and thus it became her dream. She adopted by a foster family when she was very young and always used to daydream about her life. In her childhood, she was living in a small mining village that was situated in South Yorkshire. She always felt isolated in the village and the only thing that gave her company was her writing. Then after some time she was sent to a boarding school when she was a teenager and in that school, she noticed her talent of acting. She realized that she can be a good actor and she can easily make people laugh at her jokes. Right before her exams were about to come, the school expelled her. She then went to drama school for a short time and then headed to London. As she was new in London with no job she was homeless for a brief period.
Author Rose then volunteered to teach drama and writing workshops for homeless people, ex-offenders, prisoners and individuals having issues of mental health. These people were able to create their own ideas and plays because of Jacqui. While writing, and performing stand-up comedies she remembered the joy she used to get from writing. She found the freedom and happiness she was missing all those years and then and there decided to start writing again. She was once in an abusive relationship and this gave her the idea of writing Taken, her first novel. Soon she started writing on a regular basis and her novels Trapped and Dishonor were published by the HarperCollins in the same year of 2013. She loves to write novels in the genre of fiction, crime and mystery & thriller. Since her first book in the year 2012, six books in total have been written and published by the British author Jacqui Rose.

Between Casey and Vince there seems to have a spark, but doesn’t take it any further because she doesn’t want to get hurt, not after all the things that have happened to her in the past. The dark gangland world of London is the place where Casey must enter to find the truth about his child. This world is full of hard drugs, smuggling and as worse as human trafficking. In the amidst of all these things she finds out that something dangerous, something brutal is about to happen and whatever this thing is, it is being carried out by Alfie Jennings and sadistic psycho Oscar Hardings, the mob bosses.
