There's a score to settle... THE DEBT
Johnny Frank spent eighteen years inside for murder, and now he's coming out with only one thing on his mind: to kill the man who put him there. But revenge is sweet, and Johnny doesn't want to rush - he's going to make Jim Buckley suffer.
When Simone Buckley's father-in-law moves Johnny into the family home, her first reaction is one of horror. She's finding living with a husband she wants to divorce, his volatile parents, and his psychotic brother hard enough, without adding a convicted killer into the mix.
Johnny soon sets about destroying the family, but the provocative Simone has got under his skin. And with her husband's life in the balance it seems she may be willing to do just about anything to persuade Johnny to help her . . .

PRAISE FOR ROBERTA KRAY'S GRITTY CRIME THRILLERS
'Great writing, gripping story, loved it!'
'Well into Martina Cole territory'
'Action, intrigue. . . sure to please any crime fiction fans'
'A compelling mystery'
Fans of Dick Francis and Simon Kernick will relish British author Kray's fiction debut, a cynical, hard-edged suspense novel told in alternating chapters from the perspectives of the two main characters London mobster Johnny Frank and Simone Buckley, the daughter-in-law of the man Johnny blames for his long jail sentence. Convicted for the murder of a partner-in-crime two decades earlier, Johnny emerges into the world bent on revenge against Jim Buckley, the man who snitched on him. Taking advantage of the informant's greed, Johnny arranges to be a temporary lodger in his intended victim's household, where his path crosses with the attractive but unhappy Simone. Despite her intelligence, Simone is trapped in a marriage to a faithless rake, whose financial crimes have put an end to her career as an accountant. Razor-sharp writing and excellent pacing elevate this effort beyond the standard vengeance thriller. Kray is the widow of Reggie Kray, who with his twin brother, Ronnie, was a well-known London underworld figure.
