Life is quiet for Alex Verus. Amazing.

With a flat full of friends (and the occasional fish), and business booming, why not enjoy the humdrum here and now?

But of course that’s too good to be true. In a sudden and cruel pincer movement of fate, Alex finds himself fighting a sinister and powerful gang as well as his own demons – for the same crime.

Held hostage by the choices of his past, Alex’s future is now in jeopardy . . .
