Family – might be the death of you…
The Glass family business is crime, and they’re good at what they do. Vengeance took Luke Glass behind bars – but now he's free and he's never going back. Luke wants out of the gangster life – all he has to do is convince his family to let him go.
His brother holds the reins of the South London underworld in his brutal hands - nobody tells Danny Glass no and expects to live - not even DCI Oliver Stanford, bent copper and one of the Met's rising stars. The way Danny sees it, his younger brother and sister Nina owe him everything. The price he demands is loyalty, and a war with their arch enemy gives him the leverage he needs to tie Luke to the family once more.
Luke can't see a way out, until Danny commits a crime so terrible it can't be forgiven. Love turns to hate when secrets are unearthed which pit brother against brother. Left with no choice but to choose a side, Nina holds the fate of the family in her hands.
In the Glass family, Owen Mullen has created a crime dynasty to rival the Richardsons and the Krays. Heart-pounding, jaw-dropping with non-stop action, Family is perfect for fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Mandasue Heller.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With Family, Owen Mullen launches his Glass Family series, set amongst the organised crime and gang warfare of south London. When Luke Glass walks out of Wandsworth prison after serving seven years for manslaughter he knows one thing—he wants out of the life that ultimately put him away. But his brother, Danny, has used Luke’s absence to extend his manipulative and violent grip on south London and has no intention of letting Luke leave. Despite his best intentions, Luke soon finds himself back in the middle of the criminal life, just like his sister Nina who is also trying desperately to find her way away from her dominating brother. With a senior policeman in his pocket and plenty of power, Danny believes nothing will halt his ever-increasing power over his community and his family. But as the story picks up pace, so do the twists and shocks and soon every member of the family will have to choose their ultimate fate. Will family survive all or are some crimes so heinous they can sever every bond?
Owen does it again!, brilliant characters and brilliant story, straight onto the next one
Family - Brilliant! Grateful for mine…..
Very, very good and bound to be a hit.Blistering pace. Great characters and plots with all the potential for follow-ups under the new Top Management. Very filmable too in stunning UK locations. Amidst all the carnage, which is very powerfully described and revealed tantalisingly bit by bit, I was struck by the class of the writing. How about this for an evocative turn of phrase…. “The Clyde whispered its way to the Atlantic” - made me think "and on its way to the shores of New York. Some Scottish pride stirred up by that for sure.
