Saul Cogan is a good man who does bad things. Nick Jinks, his employee, is a haunted man. Between them they run a successful business trafficking people. Nick doesn't understand what he's doing; and Saul doesn't believe what they're doing is wrong. When a delivery goes awry Saul and Nick are faced with 58 dead bodies and the greatest dilemma of their lives. From blitz London to 1980s Mozambique in civil war; from an emaciated d-list celebrity to an American astronaut, The Weight of Numbers is a tale of panoramic scope. Murder, abduction, buggery, misplaced letters, robbery, anorexia, love and a two-volume dictionary of philosophy all play an essential part in this tale that will burn the retinas.
