Meet part of the Moffat family, Michael and Carl who are the up and coming new boys who have worked all their young lives to take over the criminal underworld that exists in every city. This one just happens to be Liverpool. They aim to take down the main man called TJ Murphy, a middle aged gangster who although it's the 1990's is stuck in the 1980's when he could wear his Miami vice style clothes without looking like an idiot. He got rich from the heroin that flooded in and nearly destroyed a whole generation,their families and the local communities. He's so hated that even one of the other contenders for the prize of top dog in the city is called Mad Maisie Malone. She is prepared to help the Moffats to take TJ down. He suspects he hasn't got much time left so he employs Stephen Bentley, a middle class boy who loves violence more than any person or thing. He only works for TJ so he can eventually kill him and take it all. He is the worst type of sex tourist and goes often to the Far East to practice his knife skills on innocent young girls. The Moffats are different, you've heard of a tart with a heart well these are gangsters who are brutal when needed but care about the people they've grown up around.This was due to their sister Sara forced on the game by their mother Shelagh she became a heroin addict, but who loved her two little brothers fiercely and would do anything to protect them. She was brutally murdered in the late 1980's, but left them a legacy of love. Their mother who's idea of a good night out is to get off her head, have sex and steal whatever she can from her victims. Shelagh doesn't care if they are rich city boys from luxury apartments by the Pier head or old aged pensioners off the Estate. Maisie owns a successful night club, with her partner Linda, and although she loves Linda she has many affairs with younger women, gets bored and goes back to her, expecting to be forgiven, but even Linda has her limit. Phil is Maisies right hand man, and will do anything for her until one day she goes too far even for him to stand by her. Tiffany is a beautiful young woman who attracts Maisie, and she uses her to try and get to the Moffats intending to marry one of them so she doesn't need to be an escort or prostitute anymore. Will she succeed. A complex tale of life in a modern city, exposing the darker side that most of us know is there but most of us don't want to see.
