Jason's life is not going well. He doesn't have a job and he's been chucked out of his girlfriend's flat. When he gets the chance to work on an oil rig he hopes his luck has changed.

But there he meets someone from his past who could get him into a whole new world of trouble. Can Jason get his head together and keep out of danger? Or will everything flare up around him and burn down his hopes and dreams?This page-turning story from Carnegie Medal-nominated author Matt Dickinson is part of the Diffusion books range, written especially for prisoners and adult learners who are emerging readers and looking to improve their reading skills.
