Mum-of-three Ronni Ashcroft is starting to put her life back together after being betrayed by her husband. Shes running a successful guest house on a remote spur of the Scottish Highlands, and has met a new man the enigmatic Bishop.
But Bishop has secrets. Hes connected to a network of criminals and he has big plans to turn this part of the Ardnamurchan peninsula into a European gateway for drugs, guns and human trafficking. Soon after he confides in his new partner, he disappears.
Ronni needs to know what happened to the man she briefly fell for. Is he dead or alive? And has she been his play-thing from the start?
First, she needs to know why the sick, disfigured English gent in her guest house, Nicholas Roe, is so interested in her and her family.
This is a story about the chilling consequences of making a deal with a flesh-and-blood devil, and introduces readers to the mysterious Nicholas Roe an anti-hero who will do whatever it takes to make sure people get what they deserve.

A grisly, fast-moving story, it asks about the real cost of human life, and paints a vibrant picture of what happens to an ordinary person caught up in extraordinary circumstances.
