Desperate times call for desperate measures but how can you act when you don't know which way to turn? For Lasser that is the nerve shredding problem that is eating him up inside. Odette Noble has been taken and Lasser and the team have no idea where or even why she has been spirited away. For Lasser the horror of knowing she could be dead is shrouding him in impotent fear. That is until all hell breaks loose and people from the past start to die, leaving Lasser in a deadly chase against the clock as he tries to discover who is behind the killings and why Odette has become involved in the nightmare. The pursuit for the truth will take him from the snow smothered streets of his home town to the rising peaks and frozen wastelands of the Lake District. As the puzzle slowly starts to take shape Lasser discovers that this time he is not dealing with local hard men, but with professional killers, people who will stop at nothing and destroy anyone in their way as they try to claim the prize for taking out the man named Plymouth.
But Plymouth is not an easy man to kill, especially when he is fighting for his family. In the end Lasser realises that the only way he can help Odette is to join forces with the man with the stark blue eyes and snow white hair and when he does then he knows that all bets are off and to be left standing then you have to be prepared to break all rules to get to the truth, or die trying.
