Sean O'Neill is an angry man. He's spent the last, best years of his life in a prison ship on the Thames, and now he's dying. But his anger isn't, and he's determined not to go quietly. Revenge, however, is never as straightforward as it seems. Siobhan and Callum grew up without their dad, and have had little to do with him. Since the death of their mother, he's never seemed to have much interest in them, happy to pay for everything but preferring to leave the actual parenting to Uncle Frank. Out of the blue, they are summoned to see him, but they know he must be after something and they can't be sure he's trustworthy. Lance Rift is making a bid for freedom. A talented police officer, his life was almost destroyed in pursuit of his nemesis, so he's leaving it behind to chase something else instead: happiness. Lance sees becoming a private detective as the ideal solution, making him his own boss and giving him some time to himself, but his past won't be shut away so easily. With constant twists and surprises, and a strong emotional undercurrent, this fast-paced London thriller unites all these dynamic characters in explosive action!
