A HAUNTED MAN. A BURIED PAST. A JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS.
'Brother, a dead body can't run from a coffin, but their spirit sure as hell can try.'
1967, Bristol. Life is tough for JT Ellington, ex-cop and reluctant private eye. He's still trading in favours, helping those scared of the police or trying to stay one step ahead of the law.
But when news arrives of a tragedy that's unfolded thousands of miles away, JT's life gets even tougher. He needs to journey home to Barbados to pay his final respects – but first he must travel to New York, where his cousin Vic is boss of a criminal empire.
On Harlem's mean streets, JT is fast entangled with Evangeline – a smooth as velvet Black Panther – along with Pigfoot, a Bajan too flash with his knife. As the underworld draws him in, JT discovers the extent of Vic's criminal activities – a web of violence that stretches to Barbados and back, and connects him to the deaths of JT’s beloved wife and daughter.
Embroiled in a world of drugs, corruption, voodoo and the legacy of slavery, can JT escape the demons of his past as he returns to the island of his birth?
