Set in Vancouver and northwest BC in the late 1970s, the beautiful city’s dark underbelly is revealed. Davis, the financial mastermind behind a Vancouver east-end gang wants out, sick of the life he’s led and who he’s become. When a bank calls the loan on one of the companies he’s been using as a front to launder drug money, his plans go sideways. When he discovers the company’s principal, Koehle, has transferred all its assets to investors who belong to his wife’s church, the Mounties investigate, and Davis is ordered by the gang to kill Koehle.

Davis finds himself at war with his bleak options. Giving up his remaining scrap of humanity by committing murder would mean forever losing the possibility of the peaceful life he hopes for. But if he helps Koehle escape, it’ll be him the gang’s after next. He must make his decision and act fast before the Mounties or the gang decide for him.

About the author

David Bowra was a senior partner of a big 4 accounting firm until he set up his own company in 2004. He’s spent his career handling troubled businesses throughout Western Canada and the United States, as well as acting as interim CEO. He’s worked on airlines, residential real estate construction, wineries, hothouse operations, pulp mills and even a book publisher. While he found running a small family-run business just as challenging as a company with over 500 employees, nothing was as challenging as writing a novel. He moved from London, England, in the late seventies and lives in West Vancouver.
