Sixteen years old, naïve and trusting, Alan is tricked in to committing a terrible crime. Unable to face his family, he ran. But he could not outrun his guilt.
From his home in Canada to the idyllic South Pacific, to the frigid waters of the North Sea, to the heat and corruption of Western Africa, Alan kept on running.
To survive, he made the wrong kind of friends, learned deadly skills, and developed very bad habits. Bruised and battered by life, Alan returns home to discover the truth about his crime, his family and himself.
But is the truth more painful and unbearable than the lie?
More importantly, who deserves to die?
"The title sets the tone - a dark, page turning thriller!"
