Damaged and down on his luck, ex-boxer turned bodyguard Garron is as low as he’s been. Struggling to get through each day and taking jobs he should be refusing, he finds himself in direct opposition to psychotics and drug dealers and entering the worlds of gangs and extortionists.
But this is not the Garron of old. He’s been injured and out of the life too long and to survive he’ll have to dig deep, into reserves he thinks he’s left behind.
Reserves that might not be there anymore.

About the Author
Joe Stein was born in London in the 1960s and educated (just about) in North London. His first job was in a scrap-yard, stripping copper out of electrical cables. He left there before it was raided by Customs and Excise and has been trying to stay out of trouble ever since.
He admits to being an ex-musician and sometime amateur boxer and won't say much else. He has worked in factories, warehouses, markets, spent two days on a building site before he realised it wasn’t the place for anyone with even mild vertigo and worked for over ten years in security and as a bodyguard, luckily getting married and being told to get a ‘proper’ job before the government decided to license the security industry. His training manual for bodyguards is now therefore out of date and a collectors’ item.
He always wanted to try to write and although his first book took many years to complete, he now has four novels and a dozen short stories to his name.
He still lives in North London and has a full time day job to fit around the rest of his life.
