A standalone novel
When a teenager is the victim of an unprovoked attack while walking his dog, a murder investigation begins. A cruel twist of fate makes his innocent family the targets of a vicious campaign of terror. As the detectives of Liverpool’s Major Investigation Team try to contain the violence, several key members of an organised crime family begin to topple, causing shockwaves across the planet.
As the title says a unputdownable gritty thriller, I can agree with the gritty, not so much with the unputdownable, although the book is very good, dark with plenty of crime and it starts out really well,fast paced. There are plenty of characters in the novel which I found irritating a little until I got used to it. Most of them are part of gang and or mafia of some sort or another. I did feel sorry for one of the main characters Bryn, he seemed to get the raw end of the deal over and over again. There are different story lines going one which I found a little frustrating at first until I figured things out. This is the first book I have read written by this author and this novel is a standalone.
