The Gypsy Code: The True Story of a Volent Game of Hide and Seek at the Fringes of Society (Paperback)
Mike Woodhouse had everything: an engineering business, a wine bar, a home, a Range Rover, and a boat. Then he caught a group of travelers stealing from his warehouse. A car chase, petrol bombing, and court case later, and everything had changed.
A marked man, Mike was forced to leave everything behind and move to the Peak District for a fresh start. But his old life was never far behind and when he fell for Charmane, a Romany Gypsy, kin to the very people he was hiding from, he knew he wouldn't be safe for much longer . . .
The Gypsy Code is a story of secret identity, revenge, and forbidden love that's perfect for fans of Running with the Firm, Undercover, and Soldier Spy.
