More About This Title Out of Office


Based over 10 days, Christian Hook finds his life spiraling into freefall—abstinence broken, marriage disintegrating, family fallout, and missing in action at work. Set in a troubled London, living with the regular planted bombs failing for the time being, Christian finds himself being drawn into a world of violence, racism, and terrorism. As the spiral continues, he cannot help himself being pulled further in to this dangerous underworld, and is not sure he would want to stop even if he could.
