An utterly gripping and hilarious crime thriller.
Way back in 2003, Tom Marshall was everything those who truly love life hope never to become. He was a man of guarded existence and compulsive risk management.
Naturally, Tom's mundanity had come at a price: utter boredom. Until a weekend with seven strangers on a narrowboat.
Tom finds himself in the accidental possession of a very precious object; an object so valuable that unscrupulous characters within the criminal fraternity, and London's Metropolitan Police Service, are willing to kill for it.
Tom's new, and highly unwelcome, existence now depends not on risk management and staying guarded, but on staying alive. That and just what to do with the very precious object.
