They told us monsters didn't exist - they lied...
It was to be a routine job. Matt Franklin and his companions would rob the Securicor van. Simple. Until the job turned into a nightmare.
Two of them are shot dead and another fatally wounded.
But who is trying to wipe them out, killing not just them but their families too? How are the Government and the British army implicated? What lurks within a secret research establishment in the English countryside?
Franklin has to find out. Finally the only one left alive, he tires of being the prey and decides to become the hunter.
His quest will bring him into conflict with forces he cannot begin to imagine or understand but he is driven by a need for revenge that overrides his fear. Aided by a desperate detective, Franklin becomes embroiled in a series of events that lead to a terrifying climax in the London Underground where he comes face to face with the answers he has sought.
Like all of us, Franklin was told monsters don't exist. He's about to find out someone was lying.
