An unnamed assassin wants out of his life as a cold and ruthless killer but must face one last assignment before he flicks the escape switch. As he closes in on the biggest criminal mind in the country, he is reminded of what he left behind and how getting closer to the light at the end of the tunnel might also reunite him with a person from his long and distant past.

Who is the Big Chief? Why must he be brought down and will it be the end, not just for himself and his superior, but also to the only link to the life he has lost?


"Whilst focusing on the dark story of an unnamed man, you find yourself sucked into a city of criminals." *****

"Definitely a book worth reading, I was hooked after the first couple of chapters." ****

"A great little read about the path to redemption; not too long, in fact in some places I found myself wishing it might go on a little longer." ***
