Jon Bennet is an ideal employee: neat, efficient and conscientious.
Nobody would guess that this self-conscious introvert tortures and kills to earn his living, but for those who understand his trade Jon is more than just a journeyman murderer, he is an artist of growing reputation.
Jon works for the Tattooed Man, an awesome figure whose taste for cruelty is only outweighed by his erudite learning and penchant for philosophy. The Tattooed Man takes care of Jon. He feeds, clothes and educates his protege, asking for nothing in return but unquestioning loyalty.
By chance Jon encounters Andy and Cathy - old friends from school, now married with a child - and the cosy normality of their lives awakens him to the unsatisfactory nature of the twilight world he inhabits. As Jon finds himself drawn towards Cathy in a way he has never experienced before, he begins to question everything that he has become.
Torn between Cathy and the Tattooed Man, he becomes Mr In-Between. But the Tattooed Man will not tolerate a rival. Jon must act, and act fast. Everything is at stake. The safety of his friends and the redemption of his soul.
