Freeman operates on the fringes of London life, and that’s how he likes it – working alone on jobs that are usually legal, rarely documented, and always for the client’s benefit. But maybe this time, he’ll be the one to bear the cost.
Freeman’s return to the city is quiet, without fuss. Another client: another case. He’ll source what they need and be on his way. But he’s been missed by more people than he thought: his ex-wife, his ex-lover, and his ex-business partner.
And at least one of them wants him the hell gone again. Freeman – private, controlled – just does his job. But when he strikes up an unusual friendship with the young runaway Kit, trouble comes looking for both men, ready to expose secrets that can destroy their fragile trust. Yet, for Kit, Freeman’s more than ready for the challenge.
