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.
