Nick Price's wife died in an ill-conceived heist. Years later, his old gang fall victim to a vengeful killer. Someone is back from the dead.
Nick Price lost his wife as he flew out of Tibet with treasures looted from the Dali Lama’s palace. Eighteen years later, burdened by guilt and bound by conspiracy, he watches dispassionately as a killer eliminates his old gang.
During a serial murder investigation, DCI Jack Magee finds an old photograph of Nick and his old friends celebrating in a Bangkok bar. Each murder victim is linked to the photograph, and the story behind the celebration becomes crucial. Yet Magee is thwarted by Nick’s unwillingness to confront his past.
Only when Nick is kidnapped, flown up to ten thousand feet in a horribly familiar old airplane and forced to re-enact the tragic events that led to his wife’s death, is he willing to consider there is only one possible solution to the killer’s identity. Not that it makes sense, since he witnessed the man die eighteen years ago.
