Following a public altercation with a young girl at the luxury hotel in Greece where Jamie Tosh works as a holiday rep, he seeks the friendly voice of his fiancée back in Scotland - who dumps him.

When he discovers the same young girl was murdered overnight, he knows he's become public enemy number one, and his idea of paradise has turned into the worst type of hell.With the Greek police on his tail, Jamie attempts to trace back the night before and ends up on a journey of fear and self-discovery. But nobody can hide forever, and sooner or later he has to face up to the life he has made for himself.
With no way off the island, and almost nobody to turn to, Jamie discovers that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
