Battered and bruised, Harvey Denton sits in a police interview room facing interrogation by Detective Inspector West who has no doubts as to his part in a foiled heist and attempted murder of local businessman Steven Roper.
Neither admitting nor denying anything, Harvey agrees to tell his version of events. As his story begins, we learn that he was released from prison a month earlier and of the malevolent act that put him there. He tells of an emotional reunion with his best friends and the rekindling of lost love. What follows is the ingenious planning of an ill- fated robbery, the shocking outcome and the real driving force behind it - retribution. What unfolds is an exhilarating, moving, clever and often funny story.
