“This book is a life-affirming ‘bromance’ that shows however low life takes you, it’s possible to find happiness. Our panel all loved it and so will you.”

Ever since The Incident, James DeWitt has stayed on the safe side.


He likes to know what happens next.


Danny Allen is not on the safe side. He is more past the point of no return.


The past is about to catch up with both of them in a way that which will change their lives forever, unexpectedly.


But redemption can come in the most unlikely ways.
