The gingerbread houses

The man he is looking for is inextricably linked to a great evil perpetrated in the Gingerbread Houses and as Charlie's search progresses, he finds himself drawn into the seedy underbelly of the capital; a world of abuse, exploitation and deviancy that threatens to destroy his soul.
Others are looking for the missing man too and hunter soon becomes hunted as Charlie finds himself the target of a psychotic torturer haunted by the ghosts of his military past.
As Charlie seeks to uncover the buried secrets of the Gingerbread Houses, he desperately tries to stay out of prison, on the right side of his morality
and, most importantly, alive.
