On the run from his shady past, Lynch has just arrived in London, still looking over his shoulder to make sure he isn''t being followed. His phone is dead, he has no money, no contacts, no one at all. Until he runs into a young woman named Bobbie who mistakes him for her brother, Heydon Pierce, who disappeared 5 years ago without a trace. At Bobbie''s suggestion, Lynch goes to the Pierce family home, posing as Heydon to try and con some money out of them. But far from tricking them, his subterfuge is instantly discovered. He strikes the devil''s bargain with them - their silence for his cooperation in finding out what really happened to Heydon. But Lynch''s investigation goes too deep and uncovers the fact that Heydon Pierce was tangled up with some dangerous and powerful people in London. Everyone has their own motives to keep Heydon well buried in the past. In such a conspiracy of mirrors, there''s only one thing Lynch know for certain: the only person he can trust is himself.
