What You Don't Know by David Belbin

What You Don't Know

David Belbin

Prepare to be addicted to this pulse-racing thriller, where drugs and politics make for uneasy bedfellows. Nick and Sarah's seemingly separate worlds become intertwined in a way neither of them could have foreseen.

Extract

Nick went out and lifted the bin, saw the plastic bag. This was what the police had been looking for. The bag was full of paper wraps. There must have been a hundred of them. Nick didn't pick it up. He didn't want to get his fingerprints on it. He knew what would be inside. Crack cocain. Ten pound wraps. Over a grand's worth. Enough to put him back inside and give him a new sentence the same length as the old one.
