This contemporary crime story takes place over three weeks in November and unfolds against the multicultural backdrop of Soho, London.
Branen had to leave the UK six years before to escape his complex, clandestine history and the consequences of a crime that achieved worldwide notoriety. When his daughter is brutally murdered in Soho, he believes that he could be the reason. He returns to his old hunting grounds to find the killer.
His search brings him into conflict with the British Secret Service and Soho's underworld. He is forced to flee Soho again after a tragic meeting with his ex-wife. His past has caught up with him, and the hunter becomes the hunted.
Now 40 years old, Branen wants to stop running and to remove forever the continuing threat to his life. In an effort to get rid of his pursuers, he is faced with the prospect that his only chance of survival could lead to his death.
"I have now read the novel myself and I think it's very good.... I will not be the only publisher who finds it first rate." (Christopher MacLehose, publisher of
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - part of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy)

A captivating listen
The attention to detail in character formation – one could paint a very vivid picture of people in the book.
The journey back to Soho under the watchful eyes of the secret service
I wish I could have – I ended up doing unnecessary miles to finish certain chapters!
The narration is brilliant. Clever use of accents and tone gave something that reading alone could not have done.
