But not everybody believes in the Savage myth, and just lately the gift is looking more like a curse. Glen is forced to take any job that comes along just to make ends meet.
An Asian girl vanishes. Has she been kidnapped, as her father claims, or is she running away from an arranged marriage? A Pakistani boy is snatched from a Glasgow street and turns up dead in the ruins of a Borders castle. As he tries to track down Gurya Ali, Glen gradually realises the two events are linked, and when the body count begins to rise he knows he’s involved in a desperate race against time to save her life.
It quickly becomes clear the killer knows more about Glen Savage, than Savage does about the killer, and as he's drawn into a web of intrigue dating back centuries, Glen has is increasingly certain his opponent is playing games with him. War Games.
