Only the strongest will survive...
Maverick Manchester detective, Jon Spicer is investigating the brutal slayings of several Russian asylum-seekers. MI5 warn him to back off, but he cannot let the case go - especially once he suspects a link to the series of heart-wrenching notes being washed-up on the British coast.

No one knows who wrote them - or when - but each note forms part of a harrowing account of someone trying to survive at sea on a makeshift raft.

As Jon closes in on the truth, he realises, too late, he's now the target of a highly trained assassin who will do anything to protect his masters' shocking secret.
