Garrett Addisonabout this book: There's mystery and intrigue a plenty in this unpredictable story with twists to have you guessing right to the end. This is a novel for anyone tired of clichéd characters and stereotypical plot-lines.
Imagine you've got no friends and no options, until a chance encounter leads to a perfect fresh start where your history is not a concern. It's everything you want … until you discover that life expectancy in your benign new job is limited. Stay or go, you still need to understand what's going on?
What if your quest to uncover the truth forces you to challenge what you know of right and wrong, of who's really at risk, and your own past. Guilt is just a matter of how much you understand the bigger picture.
Devlin Bennett's life is no longer in free-fall, but only because he's hit the bottom. What's worse, his notoriety is such that opportunities and friends are few and far between. Until a new job lands in his lap.
Benign and well-paid, the role and his new peers are unfazed with his history. It's the chance he's desperate for and his life is surely on the improve. But when he is warned anonymously to not join a list of deceased past employees, the job loses some of its lustre. Unable to walk away or ignore the warnings, he needs to understand whether he's been handed a lifeline or a death-sentence.
His concerns are shared by an ageing detective investigating the death of the latest employee. Together, they just might unravel the truth that lies amongst a newly bereaved woman, a Balkan sociopath, a battered performance artist, an elusive ex-employee and his enigmatic employer's reference to a 'greater good'. What they learn might benefit them both, and others.
Guilt is just a matter of how much you understand the bigger picture.
