BLURB:
Alexandra Neve is a
student at University College London whose world suddenly falls apart. When her
best friend jumps from the university’s rooftop, she can’t stop herself from
asking, ‘Why?’ The police rule her friend’s death a suicide and for them the
case is closed — so whom can she turn to for help?
Sometimes the person
you need the most is the one you least expect to find, and in this case it’s
none other than Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history professor, who’s more
willing than most to listen to what she has to say.
Neve and Egan are as
different as they come. She’s restless, careless at times, and fearless when
the need arises, while he’s almost the complete opposite: a deep thinker with
an analytical mind, a highly rational and collected individual.
As they enter the
violent world of the Russian mafia, they must overcome their differences and
learn to work together. It’s their only chance if they want to survive.

EXCERPT:
Life, death. Two concepts, two
words.
You don’t think about them unless
you’re forced to. You take the first for granted and try to forget the second.
You get on with your life, worry
about meaningless things and you simply stop thinking about death, even though
you see it every day on the telly, in the papers you read.
So long as it’s happening to others,
you continue to go on with this comforting lie that says it’s never going to
happen to you
. The Reaper won’t come anywhere near you — until the day he
does.
It could be a car crash, it could
be a stroke. Or it could be your best friend jumping from the rooftop of the
university you both attend. And suddenly you remember that death is very real
and there’s no way of knowing who is going to be called next. You’re forced to
face the frailty of life and accept your own mortality.
My
best friend recently passed away and I almost died twice myself in the past
couple of weeks. My name is Alexandra Neve. I’m a student who used to live in a
reassuring bubble. It burst, and now I finally see the world for what it truly
is.
