Claire Askew
What You Pay For
Hodder & Stoughton


Grit and realism to the fore in this engrossing read that focuses on choices taken that dictate the direction your life will take. Drugs-based criminal gangs are at the heart of the sharp, incisive writing that Askew delivers with relish. A very taut thriller that takes us to dark places and challenges ethically and morally.
