Ronnie Glover has it all: pots of cash, a penthouse high above London, and a gorgeous girlfriend on his arm. But when his business is burned to the ground and his girl is stabbed to death, he knows his past has caught up with him. There's only one thing he can do, but sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can't hide...
Two years after returning to the UK, Ronnie Glover has the perfect life: his own company, a luxury penthouse overlooking the Thames, and a girlfriend most men would give their right arm to be with.
But history has a way of not forgetting, and without realising it, Ronnie has become one of the most hunted men in the country.
When his company office is burnt to the ground and his girlfriend murdered, Ronnie starts to suspect his past may have caught up with him. The police want to charge him with arson and murder, but only Ronnie knows the truth; he knows who is after him - and why.
Ronnie fakes a chilling death and flees to Edinburgh fearing for his life. He takes a new identity that affords him none of the luxuries he once took for granted. But ghosts from the past are waiting for him in Scotland, too - a part of his past he knew nothing about.
Ronnie’s worlds come clashing together, and when they do he faces some tough decisions. Can he survive a life on the run? Can he get his old life back? Does he even want to?
Sometimes, you're better off dead.
PRAISE FOR SLICK
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Slick, the first of Colin's books I've read and I'll certainly read more. I began to lose sympathy for the main character but the turn of events brought be back on side. Colin's writing style is great and the story, although maybe not novel, was well composed and kept me reading."
-Gig (from Amazon Reviews)
"With a plot that cracks along, charting the descent of a once-rich businessman who's up to his neck in trouble and now descending into alcoholism and the seedier sides of Leith, Colin's created a fantastic book that's all too real. Living locally to the main settings in the book, there are some bars nearby that I will probably never set foot in after reading this!
Move over Ian Rankin - there's a new boy in town."
-Grant T. Mason (from Amazon Reviews)
"Brilliant read. The people, places and the plot(s) were very descriptive and graphic throughout and never lost pace. I couldn't stop reading it. Please give us more of DI Lennox."
-Alex (from Amazon Reviews)
"A great read that powers at 100mph throughout - Colin has created a novel with dark moments and savage humour that Irvine Welsh would be proud of, without Welsh's tiresome drug and rave obsessions. Here's hoping we haven't seen the last of DI Lennox! I would definately recommend this novel."
-Alan G (from Amazon Reviews)
"A gripping and enthralling novel from the start. A great read and I'm looking forward to the next one..."
