9780099285885: Criminals

A decent, harried young banker travels north to Scotland and his mysteriously troubled sister. A single mother struggles to make a home for her family in a society she only vaguely comprehends. A baby girl is abandoned in a bus station and picked up by a stranger. A caller leaves threatening messages. Brilliantly structured and tense as a thriller, CRIMNINALS shows how the best intentions can have the worst results - and how families pull together, form themselves anew, and occasionally, tear apart.
