Two years ago, SAS hard man Simon Tabor got away with murder. Tabor prefers to call it retribution - retribution for the brutal rape and killing of his younger sister in a brothel on the Costa Del Sol.

The pattern’s key is the tattoo. The tattoo marks the death of mankind as we know it…

This is, without a doubt, a book that I read in spite of the blurb on the back cover, rather than because of it.
