An adversary from Konstantin's past asks him for a favour - break into a facility designed to protect 200 million in cash and steal an item far more valuable... All Konstantin wants is a quiet life. In Margate. But someone is looking for him, someone who'll do whatever they can to get the reluctant investigator's attention. Enter Violet, a woman with a penchant for Campari and throwing people who upset her out of windows.Konstantin finds himself forced into building a team to pull off a heist - breaking into a high security cash deposit facility with a hot line to the police. But he's not there to steal money, what he's after is a case, containing something apparently even more precious than the 200 million in notes that's held behind razor wire defences.The first member of Konstantin's team is a testosterone loaded prison officer, a man with debts to pay, and not to society. Next the pair break a data mining expert out of prison. With the arrival of a strong man to provide muscle the team is seemingly complete, but when the muscle winds up dead, the result of an inconvenient accident, Konstantin is wary. Even more so when the void in the team is filled by the volatile Violet.Getting into the facility could prove to be the easiest step. Because it appears that everyone connected with the heist is a target and Konstantin must go back to the beginning to find out who's behind it all before he winds up with a bullet in the heart.Konstantin is done with the past, but seemingly, it's not done with him... Konstantin is a hero like no other, Dark Heart, Heavy Soul a story like no other. Buy it now to find out for yourself.
