Urban crime drama based on London gangs.
4.0 out of 5 stars. 'An insight into a terrifying existence' 22nd Aug 2012
‘I found myself absolutely compelled to read Safe... This was worse than anything I had ever imagined or envisioned… Would I recommend the book? Yes, I would. It's an eye-opener into a completely different and terrifying world.’ See full UK review at Amazon.co.uk.

In or out there’s no escape. This is a novel inspired by real-life events, depicting a journey through tears and laughter and told through two very different voices: Mother and son.

- A sad and traumatic account of family breakdown and betrayal trauma.

When Tammy finally leaves her alcoholic husband she has to fight to rescue her son but she is forced to watch helplessly as he flips out of control and out of reach. Wired from birth, kick started by abuse, and eventually broken, Charlie wants the world to feel his pain. Expelled from school after school Charlie has nowhere to go, until that is, he finds a strong sense of belonging with other street kids, also excluded, also needing a family - but where the rules are very different.

At 13 Charlie gets an ASBO and is recruited into a gang. Charlie is now Loco. His thirst for crime seems insatiable - until one tragic night and then suddenly he disappears. Tammy is out of her mind as she searches footage and images during the 2011 riots, desperate to find her son.

The author is immensely grateful to Diane Johnstone (literary consultant) and Charlotte Henry for help with translation.
