Making a killing in business is one thing – doing it for real is another.
Private Investigator Sam Dyke turns down a job that would require skills that he doesn’t have – patience, computer-literacy, tact. Then he finds that the skills he does have – tenacity, aggression, street-smarts – are exactly the ones he needs for his next case – hunting down a cold-blooded murderer who seems to know what his every step will be.
To solve the case Sam must negotiate with his ex-wife, cement a relationship with a new love, unravel an office-based financial fraud, and fight off an arrogant murderer armed only with a pen-knife. Altered Life is fast-paced, bitterly comic, and introduces a tough new English private eye who knows what he wants and, usually, how to get it.
