This contemporary crime story takes place over three weeks in November and unfolds against the multicultural backdrop of Soho, London.
Branen had to leave the UK six years before to escape his complex, clandestine history and the consequences of a crime that achieved worldwide notoriety. When his daughter is brutally murdered in Soho, he believes that he could be the reason. He returns to his old hunting grounds to find the killer.
His search brings him into conflict with the British Secret Service and Soho's underworld. He is forced to flee Soho again after a tragic meeting with his ex-wife. His past has caught up with him, and the hunter becomes the hunted.
Now 40 years old, Branen wants to stop running and to remove forever the continuing threat to his life. In an effort to get rid of his pursuers, he is faced with the prospect that his only chance of survival could lead to his death.
