When gangland detective and former cop Eoin Miller wakes up to realize his almost-one-night stand has gone cold as a corpse in his bed, his gypsy heritage screams for him to do the easy thing and run. Having abandoned his morals, ambitions, and relationships for a life of alcohol, denial, and dirty work for local crime bosses, escape seems to be the only option left. But Eoin is surprised by a compulsion to root out his unknown enemies and fight for survival. All too soon, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between nearly every faction in town: rival crime lords, drug dealers, politicians, cops - even his estranged wife has a card in play.

Detective Eoin Miller’s last case nearly cost him his life - and he’s got the scars to prove it. He wants out of the game for good, but convincing crime boss Veronica Gaines is easier said than done. She has a pressing matter that needs handling…and Eoin is just the man to do it. A rapist is targeting immigrant girls, girls who know all too well just how little help an outsider can expect from the local police. As an ex-cop who was shunned for his half-gypsy blood, Eoin knows it too. There’s just one problem: Veronica isn’t paying for an arrest.
Being the resident troubleshooter for a big-time crime family has its perks — among them a posh flat and sex with the boss’s sister. But living the criminal high-life hasn’t made Eoin Miller fat and happy. He’s still the misfit half-Gypsy, ex-police detective, estranged husband and son who buries his physical and emotional wounds beneath painkillers and denial. But now his brilliant career in dirty work has taken a turn for the absolute worst.
