Jim Grant is in Boston on temporary assignment from England and his instructions are simple: don’t get involved and keep out of trouble. But for Grant, keeping out of trouble isn’t an option. Never was and never will be.
First thing Jim Grant does when he lands in Boston is buy a map. Second thing is get laid. The third is almost get himself blown up interviewing Freddy Sullivan, the prisoner he came all the way from Yorkshire to question. Despite being ordered to leave, Grant continues to investigate with the help of veteran detective Sam Kincaid and troubled ex-marine John Cornejo. Until Grant discovers the truth behind Sullivan’s activities. A truth that leads to a deadly race against time and an explosive climax.
