Just before Danny Cadogan’s fourteenth birthday his father leaves.

Having drunkenly run up a gambling debt he cannot pay, Big Dan Cadogan takes the easy way out leaving behind his wife and children to face the wrath of the men sent to collect the debt.

Determined to protect his mother, brother and sister, something changes in Danny and, overnight, he turns into a young man set on making his way in a violent and dangerous world. He becomes a Face. Not just a Face, but the most feared Face in the Smoke. Out for all he can get. At any cost. He rules his wife, Mary, and his children, with an iron will — and his fists.

But if Mary breaks her silence, it could shake Danny’s criminal empire; right to the very core. And for a Face at the top of his game, there’s only one way to go. Down. Because, after all, debts can be paid without money.

Set in the heart of London’s criminal gangland, from the seventies right up to the present-day, Faces is gritty, gripping and utterly unforgettable.
