Summary

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....

Another great read

I have enjoyed this series so far but not comfortable with the Tobruk situation.
Did we have to have the level of torture towards Rachel?
Tried to be diplomatic with my words.

Almost finished it in one go! Riveting!

This is the best Alex Verus yet. Quite a few things that have been hinted at in previous books are coming getting explained. Splendid book!
