When his girlfriend is violently attacked, Tom’s life falls apart and escape makes perfect sense.

Taking a role as a therapist for staff on an oil camp in southern Iraq seems like the perfect solution. But on his arrival, an explosion leaves four men dead.

Tom starts to ask questions, and his curiosity soon gets him into trouble. An attack on the camp sees Tom shipped home, where he works with a journalist to continue his investigations.

But when the journalist falls beneath a Tube train, Tom is left wondering whether his search for the truth could end in his death, too.

Paddy Magrane is a psychotherapist, journalist and has hit the Kindle number one spot with his Sam Keddie thrillers. He is also the director of Lyme Crime, a brand new crime & thriller festival in historic Lyme Regis.
