"Denby is clearly a writer who has the capacity to get under the skin of the world she inhabits and to translate it for her readers."--Val McDermid

Billie is in her forties, running a little jewelry shop in Bradford, trying to live a quiet life, trying to forget the past. Because Billie has a lot of past to forget. She was a biker chick, one of the Devil's Own, the speed- and acid-fueled road demons. Her life was hurtling out of control, and it ended in murder. Now, years later, she has to face the consequences.

Joolz Denby was born in 1955. She married an outlaw biker at 19. She lives in Bradford, Yorkshire.

Shortlisted for the 2005 Orange Prize, this novel tells the story of a woman looking back on her past and confronting the consequences of her self-destructive youth. It is very good on Bradford, where it is set and the story seems authentic, but somehow it seems somewhat childish.
