Born into one of Glasgow’s most brutal crime syndicates, Kat Scobie has fought long and hard to forge her own path in a world where no choices are given. She thought she’d escaped. She thought she was different.

But as her relatives gather to mourn the death of their most feared son, Kat is drawn inexorably back into their hellish world. And she’s not the only Scobie who resents the family dynamic…

Because Ray Scobie isn’t dead. He’s near-fatally wounded, hell-bent on revenge, and he knows his own father ordered his murder.

Now the only person who can stop the carnage is Kat’s ex-lover John, a cop who’s so deep undercover he’s started to lose himself. With his cover crumbling around him, John’s about to discover that FAMILIES CAN BE MURDER.


“Chillingly plausible… a beautifully paced, action-packed thriller of a book.” James Oswald

“Great pacing…clever twists.” Crimespree

“Brutal and driven … at its heart is Kat Scobie – complicated and conflicted but achingly real.” Eva Dolan
