From the Publisher:

Martin Law is a Scottish student who spends a summer on the French Riviera, falls into a spot of petty larceny and drug dealing, and discovers that he quite likes the respect and the tanned female flesh that his new swag and swagger gain him. Soon enough, he ditches his degree, and a new, riskier way of making money is taken on. Meanwhile, another Martin Law, back in the 18th century, steps onto a festering slave ship bound for the African coast...

From the Back Cover:

Martin Law is a Scottish student who spends a summer on the French Riviera, falls into a spot of petty larceny and drug dealing, and discovers that he quite likes the respect and the tanned female flesh that his new swag and swagger gain him. Soon enough, he ditches his degree, and a new, riskier way of making money is taken on.

Meanwhile, another Martin Law, back in the 18th century, steps onto a festering slave ship bound for the African coast... Both incarnations have a taste for danger, and their resulting adventures, conveyed in Wallace's clear and lively prose, are well told.
THE TIMES

'Wallace's quiet confidence in his own writing alone would take him a long way in a face-value literary world hungry for bright young things, but his ability to unfurl a story – and to inhabit the past – mark him down as a stayer.'
SCOTSMAN

'A tale of the nasty side of human nature, at it's finest.'
FHM
