Leading a quiet but cash strapped life with his horse in the Sierra Nevada, the silent, distant, misanthropic former elite special forces operative John James, has dedicated the rest of his life to calming his inner demons away from the world. He’s seen a lot of it and doesn’t like it. He also doesn’t trust. He also doesn’t like what he has done in that world or the moral compass he lost in service to that world.
As the black illegitimate and estranged son of a father who comes from a banking dynasty John has always kept himself away from his elite and snobbish family. So, he is more than surprised to find that he is called to London, when his father dies, leaving him the majority share holder in the family owned bank.
John doesn’t like the noise of London, he doesn’t like the noise of the boardroom and he certainly doesn’t like his family. That’s why he is going to sell his shares to the highest bidder and leave town quickly—whoever the bidder is.
Well, that was the plan until a bank robbery gone wrong sees him, four members of his family and some of the customers in the bank taken as hostages and used as pawns to get a plane to fly them all to Afghanistan.
It here, in this rough terrain that his family have to rely on him for survival and he has to make a moral choice that will get him killed to save their lives.
Be careful what you die for.
A solitary Afghan veteran finds himself embroiled in a bank raid that forces him to risk his life for his estranged family and ruthless half brother.
