Unusual plot and what seems authentic Essex characters. Daniel Connell, a 37 year old lawyer has managed to rise above his humble and criminal family background, but has inherited something of his father's temper with a sense of injustice, which seems to frequently land him in trouble. He reluctantly takes on a clear case of police brutality not realising it is only the tip of an iceberg. At the same time he manages to cross a local gang leader with historical links to his father and it is a toss-up who wants him dead the more. Recommended. ( )

One man. On the hunt for the truth. On the edge of London. And way outside the law. Daniel Connell is a disgraced ex-City lawyer now scraping a living in Essex, a man trying to escape the long shadows of his past. When an old childhood friend visits him, asking for his help with a case of police brutality, Daniel wants nothing to do with it. But obligations are obligations, and he soon finds himself on the wrong end of police attention, and dragged into the shady business of a local gangster. But there is far more at stake than he could ever have anticipated, including the mystery of what happened to his mother, who disappeared months after he was born. Daniel must keep ahead of his pursuers long enough to uncover the bloody mysteries of the past, and the fate of another young woman, too innocent to protect herself in the midst of a dangerous game. Welcome to Essex.… (more)
