Blagger's Code

Posted on April 13, 2019 at 9:54 AM Comments comments (515)
My new book, Blagger's Code, first in a brand new crime series is now available to pre-order on Amazon Kindle priced £2.99. Release date 28th April. Please follow the link below to purchase this book. Sorry but Vistaprint is playing up and won't let me upload the book cover!

When the Chambers brothers pull off what should be a simple robbery, they end up taking on more than they bargained for. Their target, unknown to them, works for Lenny Paisley, head of the strongest crew in Blackpool, a vicious drug dealer who wants them to pay for the insult doled out to him.

After the youngest brother is brutally beaten, the older brothers forced to watch, Rose, the Chambers matriarch reluctantly calls in her eldest daughter, Faith, to help dig her brothers out of the mess they've made. Ostracised from her home town for her role in a crime she didn't commit, Faith's homecoming isn't well received by the locals. She also becomes a target for a vindictive police officer and his team of corrupt colleagues who framed her eldest brother for a crime he is serving life for.

Determined to rid her home town of the pestilence that is Lenny Paisley once and for all, Faith and her brothers take on the worst elements of the criminal underworld, as well as those paid to uphold the law while making a mockery of it.

Meanwhile the skeletons that have been hiding for so long in the Chambers' family closet threaten to emerge and tear the family apart.

Contains strong language and scenes of violence.
