Add To Cart

There is nothing remarkable about Joe Brown. He is of average height. His average looks are hidden behind a beard. He wears average clothes. But Joe Brown has a secret, and a past, that he wants to forget. He might have managed it too. He might have moved on to a new life if he hadn't answered an ad for a room to rent. His chances would have been better still if the beautiful Julia Ryan hadn't taken him in as a lodger. But she did, and in no time at all Joe Brown's past has caught up with him. This time there will be no forgetting.
