Mild-mannered customs officer Gary hasn’t seen his father, Edge Nagle, since he was four. Raised by his mother in the UK, Gary grew up thinking his Dad back home in Australia was a quiet man whose greatest sin was being dull. He was wrong.
When Gary arrives at an isolated property on the outskirts of Brisbane to reconnect with Edge and the two half-brothers he only recently discovered existed, he is plunged into a world beyond his worst imaginings: drugs, prostitution, and an utter disregard for human life. Within hours of meeting his hate-filled father and reprobate siblings, Gary is convinced he won’t survive long enough to see London again.
