Once you’re in the family, you’re in it for life… Devastatingly powerful, THE FAMILY by the ‘undisputed queen of crime writing’ (Guardian) and Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Martina Cole reaches the darkest corners of family life. Philip Murphy expects loyalty from their nearest and dearest – for better or for worse…
Family is everything for the Murphy clan. Philip runs his business empire with the help of his brother, and dotes on his two sons who will, one day, take over.

The Murphys are dangerous and Christine can’t unsee the horrors she has now been forced to open her eyes to. But nor can she escape them.
