C & R Crime
Reissue of Roberta Kray's first gritty gangland novel, along with The Pact and The Lost
An anonymous phone call was all it took to alert the police to a body at The Palace. Now, eighteen years later, Johnny Frank is coming out of jail with only one thing on his mind - to kill the man who put him there. But first he's going to make him suffer. Jim Buckley has got everything he doesn't: a marriage, kids, a future.
Moving in on his life, Johnny subtly begins to spread rumour and suspicion. Dividing husband and wife, father and son, he sets about his intention of destroying the family from inside out. But his plans soon go dramatically awry. As the past returns to haunt him, a vicious murder and kidnap force him back on to the streets of London. He could choose to disappear if it wasn't for Simone. Buckley's provocative daughter-in-law 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...
