Jacqui Rose has written a novel of family gangland warfare. The rivalry and violence between the Donaldsons and the Taylors has spread to involve bystanders who are sucked into the dispute. They are members who are determined to try and sort out the feud. Max Donaldson is a spiteful and merciless purveyor of recrimination. If you owe him then the sadistic peril that upholds his name befalls you. He has had clashes with the 'Soho Face' of Frankie Taylor, an adversary in the gangster scene in London.
These often violent confrontations inevitably involve family. Complicating the setting is the heroine Maggie Donaldson who is in love with Johnny Taylor, Frankie's son. The interaction between the protagonists is set for a battle of wits and more. As the tension becomes more emotional and vindictive, can a resolution be the answer and if so, how? The author has written an easily readable book that captivates the attention and keeps the guesswork going until the end.
