Sometimes, the price of power is too high.

She is young, beautiful - and she will kill you without flinching. Adapted from the best-selling novel by Martina Cole, Susan Lynch (Waking Ned Devine) stars as Maura Ryan, a woman forced to confront-and embrace-her family's criminal lifestyle.

As the youngest child in a poor Irish family desperate for power, Maura has always been sheltered from the dangerous, illegal activities of her older brothers. After all, with it's double-crosses, murders and ruthless mobsters, the vicious gangland world of London in the 1950s and 60s was not place for a woman. When the family's interests start spinning out of control, Maura finally learns the truth and decides to take the Ryan destiny into her own hands.

No one believes the naive twenty-year-old is up to the task, but Maura proves to be a cool-eyed, formidable opponent. Together with her brother Michael, they soon rule as the notorious King and Queen of London's organized crime world. It seems as if the Ryans have finally become and unbeatable force-but one final gamble awaits Maura, one that will pit her future happiness against her family's blood-soaked past.
