In the 1970’s, three boys from the wrong side of Glasgow formed an unbreakable friendship. One little brother tagged along for the ride. Decades later, he and the remaining Musketeer have the opportunity to set things right: to give a girl called Kat Farthing the chance of a better life. A gifted martial artist and long-time carer to her debt-ridden, alcoholic mother, Kat’s had to grow up fast. She got her first black belt at ten and her first job at eleven. She didn’t have a lot of time for school. When she’s eighteen, she defends herself from a sexual predator and lands the chance of a better life… and a vicious, vindictive enemy who’ll stop at nothing to keep her down.
