Johnstone, Douglas, 1970- author

17-year-old Tyler lives in one of Edinburgh's most deprived areas. Coerced into robbing rich people's homes by his bullying older siblings, he's also trying to care for his little sister and his drug-addict mother. On a job, his brother stabs a homeowner and leaves her for dead - and the woman is the wife of Edinburgh's biggest crime lord, Deke Holt. With the police and the Holts closing in, and his shattered family in devastating danger, Tyler meets posh girl Flick in another stranger's house, and he thinks she may just be his salvation, unless he drags her down, too
