A little old lady turns vigilante on the streets of London, in this gritty, witty crime thriller.

Gloria Jones has had enough. She’s sixty-five, approaching retirement, and nearing the end of her tether.

When someone disposes of a gun in her local park, it ends up in Gloria’s hands and changes the course of her life forever.

Realizing there is injustice all around, Gloria finds herself transforming from a harmless senior into a confident and ruthless vigilante, determined to help victims of crime.

And so begins a campaign: taking revenge against violent criminals and helping those who can’t help themselves. After all, who’s going to question an elderly woman seemingly just going about her business?

But now that she’s fully committed to this new life, can she get away with it—or has she crossed a line?
