Samir is someone who has fled the dangers of war, only to find himself homeless in London and in a new kind of danger. Malone is the detective at the heart of this story. An Irishman, himself a refugee, he has to intervene when Samir finds himself at the centre of a killing.

This is a story with London at its heart. It’s about the scars of war, the loss of a place to belong; the need for a place to call home.
