""Miles Kendrick is a well-drawn and likeable central character." "
Miles Kendrick is a federal witness hiding from the mob, constantly haunted by the horrifying memories of his best friend's death. Whilst helping his psychiatrist with a mysterious favour, Miles stumbles into a murder - and an illegal medical research program that could free him and millions of others with post-traumatic stress disorder from their crippling fears. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Miles ends up in the cross-hairs of Dennis Groote, an ex-FBI agent turned hit man. Groote is determined to find a cure for his traumatized daughter - and determined to gain control of a secret drug formula worth billions on the open market, a formula he believes Miles possesses.
Pursued by both Groote and government agents, Miles runs for his life.
He draws on his old skills as a mobster's spy to survive a deadly duel of strike and counterstrike with the unrelenting and brutal Groote.
Miles finds two unlikely allies: a mentally broken ex-soldier and a reclusive woman whose life was destroyed by violence. To save them all - and with one last chance to be the man he once was - Miles takes the battle back to the powerful, murderous forces who want to silence one troubled man before he can get his life back.
