The Graft

The Graft

Success comes at a deadly price…

THE GRAFT by the ‘undisputed queen of crime writing’ (Guardian) and Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Martina Cole is an unflinching novel that exposes a world that many would rather ignore…

When Nick Leary hears the sound of an intruder’s footsteps downstairs one night, something inside him snaps. The thought of losing his beautiful wife and sons, their luxurious home and possessions, everything he’s grafted for, pushes him to attack.

But this single act sets in motion something way beyond Nick’s control.
He’s picked the wrong fight this time, and now it’s too late to go back…
