Leigh Russell, #1 on kindle.

A police detective wakes up in a hospital bed with a bullet wound to the chest and an impaired memory. Told he’s a hero, somehow he doesn’t feel heroic despite saving the Vatican envoy’s life… When his parents are killed in a car accident, Jack Shaw’s devastation leads him down a path of self-destruction; until an unconventional friend comes knocking and lures him into a world where he can learn to live again whilst exorcising his inner demons… As Jack and Harvey’s paths cross, a dark secret is revealed, a secret which will endanger their lives…
