Society is broken, lying in the rubble of a global economic crash. Unemployment, suspicion and terrorism are interwoven like threads in a tapestry. On a dark night in Edinburgh, an explosion rocks Jack's world to the core and he is soon enveloped into the shadowy fringes of the law as he seeks to discover the truth behind what happened. Confronting the culture of fear that has evolved in the country fraught with terrorism and rioting, Jack faces the brutality and prejudice of the new United Kingdom as well as keeping his own disturbing past from surfacing: a secret that could lead to an even darker future.
Set in a dilapidated Edinburgh post financial meltdown, this book quickly captures your attention and has you empathising with the character of Jack and the life he leads. The author paints a vivid picture of his life using gritty language along with a very descriptive narration, so real you feel you are living there with him. A compelling listen right from the very first chapter and I would highly recommend this book.
