Blood Road, by Caspar Walsh
I liked most about this book the interactions between the two brothers, Jake and Zeb, and maybe the gzillion contradictions with in the character of their criminal father, Nick. After Nick robs a sadistic psychopath, the little family goes on the lam from London to Scotland. On the down side, I could scarcely stomach the repeated scenes of torture and maiming as Vincent and his henchmen tracked Nick down.
