A FREE digital-only short story from the master of the race-against-time thriller and number one bestselling author of Siege. Included is an exclusive extract of Simon Kernick's new book Ultimatum (out 31st January 2013)
'A debt is a debt is a debt.'
It's not your debt. It's your cousin's. And he's done a runner.
So now the local gangland bosses have come to you for repayment. They aren't taking 'no' for an answer, but they will take your fingers - one by one - if you don't get hold of the money. Very soon.
You've got to think fast. You've got to act fast. And then you'll have to get out of here - as fast as you can.
