About Never Walk Away
London 2006. A senior civil servant dies in suspicious circumstances. A sensitive file indicates he might a whistle-blower. To investigate, the authorities need someone used to treading the dirty line between policing and intelligence.
DS Mark (Max) Lomax is a former Special Demonstration Squad officer – a Special Branch unit dedicated to infiltrating political and extremist groups. It’s work he thinks he’s left far behind. But following a botched stakeout, Max is called back into his old world of half-truths and conflicting agendas.
As he digs into the death of the civil servant, Max is obstructed at every turn, forcing him to turn to the people he once betrayed for help. With political reputations on the line, the case becomes less about uncovering the truth… than burying it for good.
