Two worlds are about to collide. Justin and Angela Kennedy are doing fine. Better than fine. They have wealth, position, love, children and a limitless future. Jo-Jo Mackendrick is a pillar of Dublin gangland, a man determined that nothing endangers his hard-earned supremacy. Into their lives comes Frankie Crowe, an ambitious criminal tired of risking his life for small change. Together with a crew of singularly dangerous men, Frankie decides that kidnap could be the first step on his climb to a better life. As his planned kidnap plays out, Gene Kerrigan throws a harsh light on modern Ireland, where the agenda is no longer set by Catholic bishops or masked paramilitaries, but by the drive for wealth and success. Little Criminals is a story of violence and suspense. It's also about what happens to the fragile things - friendship, love, compassion - when all hell breaks loose.
