Phillip Murphy is a family man. He worships his old mum; he takes care of his siblings who help run his business empire; he dotes on his two young sons who will one day take over. And then there's his wife and saviour, Christine, whom he loves with a vengeance. To Phillip Murphy, family is everything.

Christine has always understood this about her husband. But there is another side to Phillip, and it's a side he never wanted his wife to see. Though even if she did, could she do anything but stand by him? Because Phillip has rules, and he expects loyalty from his nearest and dearest. Once you're in the family, you're in it for life.

Listener Opinions

    " This is definitely up there as one of the worst books I have ever read. There was no proper character development, and there were complete changes in character relationship with no explanation. Aside from that, the plot was tired - it has been done to death, and Cole has brought nothing new to the table. It was lazy writing at it's absolute worst and I could not be happier to have finished it. "
