Grannies. An institution in their own right; the foundation of our families.
Or are they?
Then you haven't met Granny Belle and the Granny Mafia.
Jack Platt loves his Granny very much. She's the best cook, the best listener and the best pocket money giver, but most importantly she always makes Jack feel very special. Yes, his Granny is the BEST Granny in the whole wide world.
But behind the white permed hair and gold spectacles belies a secret so dark it will rock the very core of every grandchild and Grannies will never be seen in the same light. Ever again!
Abandoned at the age of five by his mother, Jack lives with his dad Charlie and staunch Catholic Granny Belle in the east end of London.
Eight years later, life's been pretty normal for the teenager, forever watching the comings and goings of his Grandmother's colourful friends and the odd stranger, whose problems are always miraculously resolved. But why is that?
Then one evening curiosity gets too much as he over hears Granny Belle utter, " -make it quick...and clean!"
But are these fateful words connected to the recent spate of murders or merely a coincidence?
Together with his best friend Phoebe they find out if or how the murders are linked to the Granny Mafia. And so the adventure begins...
