Looking for a suspense novel? Author P.D. Workman describes Gem, Himself, Alone as "gritty contemporary twisty suspense."
Alone on the street, Gem joins up with the Rippers gang to escape his old life, burying his past the best he can.
Riker, a vice cop, makes it his business to put Gem behind bars, but he can’t break the alibis Gem has for crimes Riker knows he has committed.
Gem has a special gift for unbreakable alibis.
Riker delves into Gem’s past in a bid to discover his secrets. Can he sort through the tangled threads to lay Gem’s past bare? And if he does, will he be able to put Gem behind bars and see that he is punished for all he has done?
Or can Gem keep his secrets from coming to light and make a new life for himself, one where he is free and able to make his own choices?
