Summary

Adele Robinson is locked up - convicted for the murder of her abusive father. She quickly realises that she'll have to play it tough if she's going to survive and soon gains a reputation for standing her ground. 

Meanwhile, her brother Peter is building his criminal empire on the outside - running protection rackets, seedy nightclubs and all manner of schemes to make a fast buck. He soon comes to the attention of not only the police but also Manchester's rival gangs, and a turf war breaks out. And when things start to get bloody, only Adele can step in to protect the family business. 

Will she get out in time to save Peter? After all, blood is thicker than water, and when family's in trouble you can't look the other way.
