As a boy Dan Calder witnessed his father abuse his mother and then as an adult had to endure the near hero worship of the same man who was a senior officer in the same police force he joined. Now he’s looking for a fresh start in a new country, but still carrying the baggage of failed relationships and a depressed, repressed past. He chose New Zealand because it was as far as he could get from his old life but he didn’t take into account the universal six degrees of separation is no more than two or three in the land of the long white cloud. Professional and discreet. No job is too big or difficult for The Agency. Training for the Auckland Marathon is free therapy and good exercise for Calder while he is planning what to do with his life. But when he encounters The Agency his life instantly changes as he engages in a deadly game with an unknown foe for the ultimate reward — his own salvation. The Agency has targeted a new client and before long others are depending on him too. The clock is ticking and soon all Calder’s unique crime solving talents are brought to the fore. This was not the new life Dan Calder planned for himself.
