An Irish story of violence and suspense, crime and corruption.
Two worlds are about to collide. Kevin 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.
