Hawk’s only other interest, an unexpected love for baroque opera, is kept concealed. When Kazan returns with his beautiful bride-to-be, Hawk presents the pair with a macabre wedding present.

The only people he can rely on, it seems, are his wife and the trusted Hawk. Hawk brings in another friend, Cecille, and on Guy Fawkes night, as a full-scale gang war breaks out, these four alone must face the enemy.
