💫 Danube Street
Back of the Book
From the authors of the bestselling Coyle Trilogy comes a fantastic new title.
Danube Street tells the tale of notorious Madame, Stella Gold, and her mission to turn the infamous number 17 Danube St into Edinburgh’s most exclusive brothel.
The house, situated in one of Edinburgh’s most exclusive streets, was known the length and breadth of the country; a magnet for red-blooded males, single or otherwise. Danube Street was always the first port of call when Merchant or Naval ships docked in Leith, and was the attraction, never to be missed by visiting clergymen of every denomination.
Stella Gold began life far from the bright lights of the city. Born Agnes McLeod, she was reared in the wilds of Ayrshire. The only daughter of a tenant farmer, she endured a harsh, rugged upbringing. Now, although the darling of Edinburgh’s glitterati, she finds herself the victim of a vendetta by the city’s most dangerous and violent criminal brothers,and a corrupt Chief of Police.
Survival was a constant challenge which Stella thought she had under control. How wrong could she be?
LINDA TWEEDIE and co-author KATE McGREGOR live (separately) in East Lothian, enjoying semi-retirement from their previous escapades in the hospitality trade. Between them, they’ve generated years worth of stories from working behind a bar, planning sexy parties and ignoring customers’ requests that they should write a book. However, the time came when the pair decided to be mistresses of their own destiny, and so they embarked upon their journey as writers. Tweedie and McGregor have co-authored several books, including The Life series, the first of which, Life Behind Bars, was a finalist in The People’s Book Prize, shortly followed by the bestselling Coyle Trilogy: The Silence, The Betrayal and The Reckoning. Danube Street is their first stand-alone novel, and if you want to read about crime and debauchery from two of Scotland’s biggest partners in crime, you’ll love this.
She grew up in Edinburgh, worked in a printers there when she was fifteen and, later, was a Mother of the Chapel in Milton Keynes where she now lives.
