Denied justice in court by the long-armed protection of the Mob, Alan Riddle, barrister-at-law, is passionate about finding the chink in the armor of organised crime.
So when the Mafia's right-hand man wants out and is prepared to reveal big names and blueprints, Alan Riddle hands him to the National Crime Authority as a protected witness.
But the Mob want their wayward son back, and nothing can prepare Riddle or the NCA for the force and ferocity of their attack. No-one betrays the family.
But, as Riddle uncovers, there is much, much more at stake.
And it isn't just Mafia secrets...
