The Bad Angel Brothers

£9.99

There’s sibling rivalry and then there’s the relationship of brothers Cal and Frank Belanger, which takes fraternal antipathy to a whole new level. Enemies since childhood, the small town of Littleford, where they are nicknamed the ‘Bad Angle Brothers’, just isn’t big enough to hold them both. So Cal strikes out for the world’s wild places – a geologist in search of gold and other precious minerals, leaving Frank to develop a career as the town’s lawyer, fixer and local hero. Apart, their differences are muted by distance, but when Cal, newly rich and newly wed, returns to the town of his birth, to buy a house and raise a family, Frank gives him the opposite of a brotherly welcome. From undermining Cal’s marriage, while Cal is away on business, to torpedoing his finances, nothing is off the table, setting the scene for a tale of vicious betrayals and reprisals, culminating in the ultimate plan: murder.
