The second book explains the background of Gabriel Ash. He was working as a security analyst for the British Government. The case he had been working on four years ago concern the hijacking of arms shipment by the Somalia privates. His wife and sons were kidnapped by the privates and no trace was found of them. Gabriel had a mental breakdown and retired to his hometown of Norfolk. Information from a high ranking Norfolk police officer before he was killed hinted that they might be still alive. Hazel becomes involve with Gabriel helping him search for clues. The book has a cliffhanger for the ending as Gabriel learns that Cathy, his wife is still alive. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
