When the law of the land fails to deliver justice, justice can become brutal and ... fatal.
Sixteen years ago after an argument with his father, sixteen-year-old Charlie Ashton left Beck le Street, vowing never to return.
Now sixteen years later he is reluctantly drawn back into this incestuous community when his estranged father is charged with the murder of his mother. Charlie’s need to catch the killer destroys the thin veneer of 21st Century normality that masquerades as village life, revealing the raw violence that lurks just beneath the surface.
Does he run, fight or join them? Whatever - he learns there are vigilantes and then there is Beck le Street.

Every year, on the same night in July, a woman is taken from the streets of London; snatched by a killer who moves through the city like a ghost.

Addie has a secret. On the morning of her tenth birthday, four bombs were detonated across the capital. That night her dad came home covered in blood. She thought he was hurt in the attacks - but then her sister Jessie found a missing woman's purse hidden in his room.

Jessie says they mustn't tell. She says there's nothing to worry about. But when she takes a job looking after the woman's baby daughter, Addie starts to realise that her big sister doesn't always tell her the whole story. And that the secrets they're keeping may start costing lives . . .

Across the world, three officers must battle a hidden evil enemy as well as their own governments to unravel a dangerous mystery. What is the Silk Fist conspiracy, and will they expose the true culprits before it is too late? Sergeant Christopher Wyatt of the British Royal Protection Squad has been framed by a powerful source from the Russian media, linking him with Silk Fist, a mysterious conspiracy that threatens world peace. Mistrusted and branded a renegade traitor by the British authorities, he must clear his name by finding the true origin of these dangerous attacks. Linda Marquez is a sergeant of the United States Secret Service and trusted special assistant to the First Lady, until she is betrayed by a member of the US intelligence services or someone within the White House. No longer able to trust her own government, she puts aside her initial deep distrust of Wyatt to protect herself from these new enemies and prove her innocence. At the Indian Intelligence Service, Premendra Dhawan risks his own career to gather intelligence about the Silk Fist attacks. Together with Marquez and Wyatt, he must decipher a hard won series of clues that point to the upper echelons of the British and American governments, and a devastating attack on a gathering of world leaders... Can the three officers put their mistrust and suspicion of each other aside in order to expose the deadly plot? Will they ever discover the reasons behind the attacks? And will the ultimate secret of who is behind the Silk Fist conspiracy be revealed? Designed to be an entertaining and commercial thriller, The Silk Fist Conspiracy is set in many exotic and fascinating parts of the world. It is an ideal read for those who have an appreciation for facts, recent history and a gripping thriller. Featuring several red herring characters and a collection of puzzling clues, the book will keep readers guessing, chapter after chapter. With an equal balance of tough action and deepening relationships, this is a story that keeps the reader enthralled and surprised until the very end.
