Tom Bettany is working at a meat processing plant in France when he gets a voicemail telling him that his estranged 26-year-old son is dead.
Liam Bettany fell from his London balcony, where he was smoking dope. Now, for the first time since he cut all ties years ago, Bettany returns home, to find out the truth about his son's death.
But more than a few people are interested to hear Bettany is back in town. He might have thought he'd left it all behind when he first skipped town, but nobody really just walks away.

Very pleasing story telling indeed. Terrific to get some more "back story" for those of us who only came in at the Slow Horses stage.
Such planning by the author to hear the inimitable Jackson's name uttered before....
And Sean Barrett. How brilliant can a voice actor be? This makes about the 30th? book I have listened to read by this person. I have chosen some because I was hunting for a particular title, but often, I was following the voice, skill, presence.
I hope the journey continues for a long time yet.
Really enjoyed this and the Dame Ingrid character, although not as good as Slow Horses. Like the way he can sketch out a character with just a few lines and you can almost see them before you eyes. And I enjoy the tradecraft. Sean Barrett is brilliant as always. He gets the tone pitch perfect.
