How would any of us react to being sentenced to twelve years in prison on false evidence for a crime we did not commit? The evidence, given on oath by so called friends who were prepared to see him go down to save their own miserable skins. That's what happened to James McAuley from Belfast who was visiting England on business where he was arrested. McAuley reacted badly to this prison sentence which he regarded as illegal. He swore that he would track down everyone involved and even early release under the Good Friday Belfast agreement did nothing to soothe his temper. Yes, he played the game but the anger he held was frightening, as a few prisoners had experienced.
Unable to return home and unable to find work, even in London and with three good degrees, he turned to the criminal fraternity he spent his prison time with for help. They found him employment as a travel journalist which acted as a cover for his real job as a professional hit man - a job he was extremely good at. The organisation which employed him was keen that he take over the training of bodyguards for protection duties abroad.
As news reached James that his mentor is facing a terminal illness he prepares to take over the management of the Bodyguard Training Academy in Scotland, just as a beautiful young woman enters his life, allowing him to believe he may be able to consider marriage again.
