Brand new Jewish East End crime fiction by B.B. Vos.

For Sam, the optimism of 1931 dims when from rain-slicked Mile End emerges Rotti Michaels, kosher butcher and part-time villain. Rotti makes an offer Sam cannot refuse: if Pearl, the daughter he didn't know he had, is going to stay a secret from the people who matter, Rotti's silence will be very expensive.

But Sam's kindly old father Gabe is assaulted, as Sam's family become unwittingly entangled with the underworld villains brought into Sam's comfortable north London world by Rotti Michaels. Worse still, behind the butcher is Pearl's cousin, the gangster Abner, whose strange passions threaten Sam, his family, perhaps even Pearl herself. As the lies spool further and darker, and Sam fights to be the father he should be, how many people must suffer the consequences of his mistakes?
