Colin Knightabout this book: This is a story of revenge and survival.
It is s story of the suffering and degradation forced on the protagonist which over time transforms Alan, a timid teenage boy, in to a ruthless killer.
After twenty years of running from his crime, and equipped with frightening skills learned in the violence-laden drug smuggling world, and refined while fighting with mercenaries in Africa, Alan has become a destitute alcoholic roaming the streets of downtown Toronto.
A chance encounter, a violent confrontation, and the death of his mother coincide to provide Alan with a chance of recovery.
Sober, Alan seeks redemption by punishing those he holds responsible for his original crime. After exacting the ultimate revenge, Alan discovers the truth about his crime, his family and what really happened twenty years before.
In creating Alan, I sought to develop a character that elicits both sympathy and outrage and force the reader to confront the same moral dilemmas as Alan and ultimately to answer the question: Do some people deserve to die?
The story, being my first, draws on my own experiences. I have visited, or lived, in the majority of locations and many of the situations and characters are composites of people and actions I either experienced saw or heard of second and third hand.
The majority of research was stimulated by my own work and travel experiences and used to provide the details and enrich the scenes.
My book was ten months in the making from first outline to polished draft. The original title was The Cottage Sitter, but as I have learned from my other books, the initial story often meanders and wanders before coalescing in to its end form.
