Leo Kennedy was always meant to enter the family business, where deals are made in dark corners and crossing the wrong people can get you killed. But, years ago, he surprised everyone by leaving it all behind and choosing a life on the straight and narrow – at a heavy cost. Now, he’s back in Dublin to receive a mysterious inheritance, and trying to ignore the increasingly loud hum of gang violence in the city. Meanwhile, as tensions escalate between Leo’s toxic family and rival gang the Wards, trafficked sisters Yulia and Celestine are desperately trying to free themselves from Duchy Ward’s violent clutches.
Leo immerses himself in plans to open a restaurant and turn his life around once more, failing to notice the signs that his return is all part of a trap set by his father to bring him back into the fold. And this time, there may be no escape…
