"His strident voice cuts through the silence and a chill laces through my cells. In his naturally taunt voice, my name sounds like a death sentence. His pale brown eyes appear as black holes in the shadows and he stands tall, his shoulders squared, hands tucked into the pockets of his frayed jeans, abnormally casual - but the corner of his mouth quirks into a barely visible sneer that curdles my blood."
Harry Steel is one of the targets of The Faceless, South London's most brutal gang. You may wonder why such prolific criminals would spend two years waiting on the capture of their nineteen-year-old victim, but the true reasons died along with his brother Ben and the rest of Harry's family.
Faced with loss, danger and isolation, Harry rebuilds his life in San Francisco and stays firmly stable until he meets the capricious and enchanting Hope Thorne, who has a dangerous secret.
The pair soon realise that in order to stay alive on their terminal journey, their darkest secrets must first die.
As the saying goes, you can run, but you can't hide.
