Nick Sharman—at last—is living a life of married bliss with his new partner (and ex-stripper) Dawn. The bad boy has settled down, and the booze and the drugs and the guns are but a happy memory—unlike his ex-wife Laura, now married to respectability. Laura's quite capable of shattering the idyll, but this time it's serious—their 15-year-old daughter Judith, the real love of Sharman's life, has gone missing. The police are looking, but have no leads. Laura fears the worst. Sharman still has his own skills. But Laura's call returns him to a world he thought he'd left. And when he decides to right some wrongs in his own way, domestic bliss becomes a thing of the past—and Sharman, once again, finds himself playing for keeps.
