In case you’re new to the blog or have missed me talking about it on The Joined Up Writing Podcast, here’s the blurb on SAFE HANDS . . .
A RETIRED SAFE CRACKER
Mickey Blake was the best, able to open any safe with only his heightened sense of touch. For the last 18 years, he’s been retired, hiding out in Spain and trying to save his marriage.
But now his wife is dying, he owes money to the wrong people and time is running out.
A DESPERATE MOTHER
Living in a rundown seaside town, Hazel is a single mum driven to kill to avenge her friend and stop her teenage son being sucked into a life of crime.
ONE LAST JOB
Mickey meets Hazel when he returns to the UK for one last job – to open a huge vault inside a gangland casino. Before that, he needs to deal with a dead body, a corrupt undercover cop, an unhinged crime boss and a son that hates his guts.
Can Mickey and Hazel get out clean?
