Most people travel to Corfu to escape the real world for a couple of weeks. But not McIntyre. McIntyre’s a fixer, specialising in getting people out of places they don’t want to be with the minimum of fuss, publicity and violence. The job in Corfu should be easy – spring Lauren, a 15-year-old schoolgirl, from the luxury compound of the tech billionaire, Julian Hepworth. Hepworth’s young, handsome and charismatic – he’s also a suspected paedophile.

But as McIntyre sets up his operation, things quickly start to slip out of control. Soon, he has to contend with Albanian gangsters, Greek drug dealers, psychotic bodyguards, flat earthers and spoilt, wealthy teenagers looking for dangerous kicks. Everything converges on a glamorous summer party at Hepworth’s spectacular villa; can McIntyre play the different factions off against each other and get Lauren to safety without things going horribly wrong?
