The Glass family business is crime, and they’re good at what they do. Vengeance took Luke Glass behind bars – but now he’s free and he’s never going back. Luke wants out of the gangster life – all he has to do is convince his family to let him go.

His brother holds the reins of the South London underworld in his brutal hands – nobody tells Danny Glass no and expects to live – not even DCI Oliver Stanford, bent copper and one of the Met’s rising stars. The way Danny sees it, his younger brother and sister Nina owe him everything. The price he demands is loyalty, and a war with their arch enemy gives him the leverage he needs to tie Luke to the family once more.

Luke can’t see a way out, until Danny commits a crime so terrible it can’t be forgiven. Love turns to hate when secrets are unearthed which pit brother against brother. Left with no choice but to choose a side, Nina holds the fate of the family in her hands.

In the Glass family, Owen Mullen has created a crime dynasty to rival the Richardsons and the Krays. Heart-pounding, jaw-dropping with non-stop action, Family is perfect for fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Mandasue Heller.

What readers say about Owen Mullen:

‘Owen Mullen knows how to ramp up the action just when it’s needed… he never fails to give you hard-hitting thrillers that have moments that will stay with you forever…’

‘One of the very best thriller writers I have ever read.’

‘Owen Mullen writes a good story, he really brings his characters to life and the endings are hard to guess and never what you expected.’

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

Because Owen Mullen is one of the best thriller writers there is!  I’ve read all his books and have never been disappointed.   His books are always exciting with plenty of action and twists. I am such a fan. 

While (I  am reading it) 

I haven’t been out so much this week – instead I’ve been learning to play the keyboard.  I’ve had this keyboard over 25 years, but have recently discovered learning via an App is so much better than my previous “Teach Yourself …” books.  Who’d have known it would be so difficult though?  Notes to learn to sight read, two staves (sets of parallel lines) to read at once, two hands doing different things, and then the cat deciding it is the best place to sit.  Still I’m enjoying it, and feel that it is good for brain flexibility.  A career as a concert pianist is unlikely though!


If you would like to tell me What you are reading, Why you are reading that book, and what you’re doing While you’re reading it, then let me know via   the Guest Blog Page on EmmabBooks.com   and maybe I’ll blog about it. 

All the best, Emma
