There's a score to settle... THE DEBT

A Sphere repackaged reissue of Roberta Kray's first bestselling novel, originally published by Constable.

There's a score to settle... THE DEBT

Johnny Frank spent eighteen years inside for murder, and now he's coming out with only one thing on his mind: to kill the man who put him there. But revenge is sweet, and Johnny doesn't want to rush - he's going to make Jim Buckley suffer.

When Simone Buckley's father-in-law moves Johnny into the family home, her first reaction is one of horror. She's finding living with a husband she wants to divorce, his volatile parents, and his psychotic brother hard enough, without adding a convicted killer into the mix.

Johnny soon sets about destroying the family, but the provocative Simone has got under his skin. And with her husband's life in the balance it seems she may be willing to do just about anything to persuade Johnny to help her . . .
