Nash and Sonia are boyfriend-girlfriend. They're both single parents, they get along well enough, and they're teachers. The dangerous thing between them is their association with one of Melbourne's drug lords. Nash was his good friend, while Sonia is his ex-wife. Sonia remembers all the things she did for her ex, but she tries to squash those memories to focus on the present.
Their children are attracted to each other. Nash's daughter Mia and Sonia's son Mick become an item. Mia gets hooked on drugs. Mick has a foul mouth and an equally foul mood. Mia's drug connection, Kimi, gets involved with the two of them in a plan that seems well-thought out, but things are about to get really bad.
The alternating viewpoints are brilliant since these parents and their children come to life. The story is gritty, with realistic and flawed characters that wound into my brain and wouldn't let go. The book is high on action and suspense, with the events weaving together to a shocking, bloody ending the reader will then fully understand what the cover is about.
