when a valuable pleasure robot called Naomi is caught in his nets, he senses the

But Naomi’s owner, the brutal gangster Agarkka D’Souza, doesn’t take kindly to his
property being taken. Dhiraj’s illicit deal thrusts him into a web of corruption stretching

but possibly something more?
Man O’War will be available to buy from the 1st of March 2018.
