Christopher Kruse has moved to the south of France with his wife and daughter to become a better man -- to escape his past as a high-priced security agent and his guilt over old wrongs. But after a harrowing accident, he finds himself drawn into a web of political gamesmanship and murder. When his wife disappears, Kruse must draw on his old instincts to find her, ahead of the police and two sinister members of a Corsican crime family.

Christopher Kruse could have had no idea that his decision to move his family to the south of France would change their lives forever. He thought that by moving, he could start afresh, put his life as a high-risk security agent and the evils that came with that position, behind him. But what he encounters here is far worse than anything he was escaping from and the loss that he suffers weighs him down like a too-heavy cloak upon his shoulders. Kruse becomes tangled in a web of the powerful and corrupt as he tries to make sense of the horror that has unravelled his life.

Babiak has created an intense, face-paced story where the games that politicians play lead to murder and where his protagonist has to dig deep within himself, beyond all loss and pain, to maintain his humanity.
