Twenty-one-year-old Tyson Reece is down on his luck.
Suddenly finding himself unemployed; pride and his upbringing keep him from accepting handouts, either from his best friend Kyle, or the government.
Broke, hungry and alone, Tyson succumbs to a last resort, contacting Kieran Wayland, his depraved ex.
Sensing an opportunity, a spur of the moment decision brings the police crashing into Tyson's world, setting in motion a chain of events he could never have predicted.
Zara Mulaney, a newly promoted DI, is watching Wayland from afar, convinced he is part of an underworld organisation responsible for a spate of terrifying murders across the city.
Quietly investigating Kieran, she is outsmarted at every turn and believes he is protected by other high-ranking officers within the force.
In a last-ditch effort, she approaches Tyson, hoping he is the last piece in the puzzle; the one who can finally bring Kieran to justice.
But, Wayland is a tour de force with friends in high places; arrogant in the belief he is untouchable.
Agreeing to help Mulaney, Tyson is about to be plunged into a world he never dared believe existed.
