Taff Motley is a disgraced Iraq war veteran who returns to his home city of Cardiff. He accepts without qualms a job as a drug dealer – which soon involves him in a murderous ‘turf war’ against a corrupt police force. Motley’s uncertain destiny is decided for him by his abiding love for a woman.
There are no heroes and no villains between these covers. There are only people; ordinary people, struggling to forget their pasts, hoping to find forgiveness, or revealing their dangerous weaknesses, their potent evils. At its heart, ‘The Corrupted’ is a story about love. Its pages lift a poignant mask on the questions of why men love and what love does to men.
The reader may be shocked by the realism of this story; with its mixture of sensualism and moral degeneracy, its violence and ferocity.
