Boredom’s dangerous. The shipwreck is all over the TV news. And Danny Lancaster is pretty sure anything washed ashore is fair game.
So when the giant cargo ship Margherita sheds her containers in a Channel storm Danny and his mates go beachcombing.
Down on a storm-lashed beach it’s like Aladdin’s cave. The stuff is only going to get ruined so, what the hell, finders-keepers. Insurance pays out, no one dies.
But among the mangled containers they find more than they bargained for.
The discovery draws Danny to a network of gangsters and dodgy politicians.
A lap dancer goes missing, Ambrose and Everard are plotting and crime boss Big Eddie Archer wants a word.
Then Danny remembers one bloody day in Afghanistan and calls in a debt from his old platoon commander to track down a secret factory.
And once Danny gets angry, that’s it. His training is all about speed and ferocity behind enemy lines.
The fuse is lit for a bonfire night confrontation.
That’s when the real storm breaks. People start to die.
