The novel


Cover Jan2016 RGB 2 large

‘She was beautiful, almost inhumanly so, as if she were drawn by hand. I felt like I could look but not touch, that I’d be forced to pay if I broke her.’

Steve Hollis despises what he has become, the existence he has settled for.

He is leading the wrong life and dreaming of missed opportunities, following a shocking act of revenge he cannot forget.

One man can put him back on the right path; a girl will lead him further astray.

But when tragedy strikes and danger slips quietly out of the shadows, loyalties reach breaking point. A boy goes missing and the streets refuse to give up any answers, leaving Hollis with one question of his own…

Is there a way back?

“The storyline has been cleverly constructed, with a great ending, but just as impressive is the writing itself. It’s humorous at times, thought-provoking at others, and there’s a confidence to the way the author expresses himself that makes the characters very real. He can really write. I flew through the last 100 pages.” Amazon review (****)
