Debbie is a middle-aged, boring civil servant with a secret life as a writer...
She's worked in law enforcement for over 25 years, in a variety of different roles, which may be why the darker side of life tends to emerge in her writing. If she makes enough money selling books, perhaps she'll be able to afford counselling instead.
Lenny’s been released early from prison. He’s got a normal and boring job, and he’s living a normal and boring life in a small flat in Liverpool. But Lenny’s never done normal. Or boring. Everything comes with a price and this time he's risking his freedom and maybe even his life.
The cops have made Lenny an offer – help the police pull in one of London’s biggest criminals and there might be a way to stay out of prison. But the chain of evidence he needs to bring Jackson down might just be the noose around his own neck.
Lenny’s turned his back on the past. In return for police protection and a lighter sentence, he’s grassed up his old gangland boss and he’s hoping that eventually he’ll be free to start a new life with Amanda. But turning his life around is going to be a lot harder than he thinks.
It’s Eddie’s trial and Michael is reliving events he’d rather forget. Giving evidence means he can’t hide, and there are still people looking for him and old debts to be repaid. It was never going to be easy.
Michael realises he has to face his demons head-on if he's ever going to move on with his life – and now he's on a collision course with his worst nightmare.
