Children are dying on London’s streets. Frankie Reece, stabbed through the heart, outside a corner shop. Others recruited from care homes, picked up and exploited; passed like gifts between gangs. They are London’s lost.
DS Noah Jake is determined to handle Raphaela’s case and Frankie’s too. But he’s facing his own turmoil, and it’s becoming an obsession. DI Marnie Rome is worried, and she needs Noah on side. Because more children are disappearing, more are being killed by the day and the swelling tide of violence needs to be stemmed before it’s too late.
Never Be Broken is a tense and disturbing look at gang culture, manipulation and the exploitation and murder of children, very relevant and important issues in today’s world.

Sarah Edwards, a web designer, returned to Cherringham from London with her two children when her husband left her for his boss. She now runs her own company.
