Something of a loner, quiet and cynical Nick Miller has been content to run a bar and stay out of trouble until Stacia appears, looking to make a deal with the head of organised crime—the boss of Kings Cross. Nick’s no criminal, but he knows people. People like underworld enforcer Ray Peterson.
Nick is balanced on a knife’s edge, torn between his loyalties to his acquaintances and his hunger for something better. He steps off the edge, straight into a world of danger and deceit, where the only thing that matters is making it out alive.
Can a dishonest American cop teach Nick to live again, or will she get him killed?
Can they stay out of jail, stay alive, and stay together?
Find out in this tense, fast paced thriller.
