Richard Knox has served his time, so why shouldn't he be allowed to
live wherever he wants? Yes, in the past he was a violent rapist, but
he's seen the error of his ways. Found God. Wants to leave his dark
past in Newcastle behind him and make a new start.
Or so he says.
Detective Sergeant Logan McRae isn't exactly thrilled to be part of the team helping Knox settle into his new Aberdeen home. He's even less thrilled to be stuck with DSI Danby from Northumbria Police -- the man who put Knox behind bars for ten years - supposedly here to 'keep an eye on things'.
Only things are about to go very, very wrong.
Edinburgh gangster Malk the Knife wants a slice of the development boom Donald Trump's golf course is bringing to the Granite City, whether local crime lord Wee Hamish Mowat likes it or not. Three heavies from Newcastle want a 'quiet word' with DSI Danby about a missing mob accountant. And Richard Knox's dark past isn't done with him yet...
