Paul Black has just been released from prison after serving 15 years for armed robbery. He wrote a crime novel in prison.
He's just about to sign a publishing deal that could change his life forever, but his ambition to start a new "legit" life might be more difficult than he thought.
He insists the novel is pulp fiction, but the media have hyped that he's writing about his past criminal activities and associates. His past associates now get a little worried about this book.
Is this just a crime fiction novel, with a good viral publicity spin, or has Paul really written a bio to open up a can of worms. Maybe a slow burn revenge plan.
