"This town isn't what it was. It's now run by drug dealers."
"Did that boy Tyler really run away or are the rumours true?"
"There are hidden forces at work here. Trust no-one."
Moorton is a fictional semi-urban town in the north-east of England and the setting for the Moorton community novels. Written by an experienced social work and child protection manager with a charity and community based background, the existing and forthcoming novels explore social decay through the eyes of residents and professional workers who have to meet their legal obligations against a backdrop of austerity. The Moorton community novels will be of particular interest to those engaged in social work and child care as they explore real social work dilemmas within a decaying urban environment. The books, inspired by true events, will also be welcomed by those who enjoy gritty, realistic, urban drama. They also stand-alone as emotional mystery thrillers.
