Forced to leave England and like so many people with something to hide he found himself in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. Within hours he was arrested for murder but his luck seemed to change when he received an unexpected offer he couldn’t refuse from one of Amsterdam’s most notorious gangland bosses - to manage the Love Shack, a bar and brothel.
It soon turned sour and on New Year’s Eve 1999, when once again, his violent past caught up with him and the Love Shack was firebombed while they were inside.
