Boredom’s dangerous. The shipwreck is all over the TV news. And Danny Lancaster - former paratrooper turned private investigator - is pretty sure anything washed ashore is fair game.
So when the giant cargo ship Margherita sheds her containers in a Channel storm Danny and his mates go beachcombing.
Down on a storm-lashed beach it’s like Aladdin’s cave. The stuff is only going to get ruined so, what the hell, finders-keepers. Insurance pays out, no one dies.
But among the mangled containers they find more than they bargained for.
The discovery draws Afghanistan veteran Danny into a dangerous alliance of gangsters and corrupt politicians.
A lap dancer goes missing, Ambrose and Everard are plotting and crime boss Big Eddie Archer wants a word,
Then Danny remembers one bloody day in Afghanistan and calls in a debt from his old platoon commander to track down a secret factory.
And once Danny gets angry, that’s it. His training is all about speed and ferocity behind enemy lines.
The fuse is lit for a bonfire night confrontation.
That’s when the real storm breaks.
That's when people start to die.
