Manchester's criminal underworld is brought shockingly to life by the bestselling author of THE CLUB.
Maria Price is a survivor of the care system who thought she would never have a family or security again. She's just inherited a house and a bank account, and things appear to be looking up.
Joel Parry - good-looking, charming and a wonderful lover - seems to know everyone who is anyone in Manchester. He just happens to need a place to stay.
Before long Joel moves into Maria's house and is helping her to spend her money. But he isn't what he seems to be. Deep in the drug scene, his terrifying past is about to catch up with him - and the naive girl who trusts him . . .
Mandasue was born in Cheshire and moved to Manchester in 1982. She spent ten years living in the notorious Hulme Cresecents which have since become the background to her novels.
Not only is she a talented writer, but she has also sung in cabaret and rock groups, seventies soul cover bands and blues jam bands.
