In London, George Fowler heads a criminal syndicate that specializes in pornography. But his world is in jeopardy. Someone is undermining his empire from within, and Fowler becomes increasingly ruthless in his pursuit of the unknown traitor. Juxtaposed with the terror and violence of Fowlers last days in London is the flash-forward narrative of his hideout bunker in a tiny English beach town, where he is trying to salvage his fallen empire. Just as it seems possible for Fowler to rise again, another trigger may cause his total, irreparable unravelling.
