Family by Owen Mullen

This is a fast paced powerful gritty thrilling read. Be prepared to read in a single sitting! Once I started I couldn’t stop reading although I also didn’t want it to end. Already desperate for part two, which I hope is coming soon.

This book had everything you would look for in a Gangland Thriller. There are murders, bent Police Officers, rival crime families who are out for revenge and unexpected twists and surprises along the way. Brilliant!
