Publisher's Summary

The murder of a media moghul in his country mansion appears to be the result of him disturbing a gang of would-be thieves. The robbers are swiftly caught, but when they are unexpectedly moved to a different prison they escape.
Back in Edinburgh a young solicitor reveals to the press that one of the subjects had left a letter with her some time before the break-in which proves his innocence. Jack Parlabane, journo extraordinaire, is intrigued, but when he approaches the lawyer he discovers someone else is trying to get near her - someone with evil intent, political connections of the highest order and a corrupt agenda.

Another Brilliant read

I am reading Brookmye's books out of sequence as this is his second book but has only just been released on Audible. This is the second book featuring Jack Parlabane;It was written in 1997 and although very political could have been written last week. Apart from a very few references dating the work, nothings changed and Brookmye's Political views (which tend to match my own) come through like a bullet train. Don't let this put you off they are delivered in a brilliant story and very well produced plot. The narrator is brilliant and does a very good job.

Getting through a lot of the Tartan Noir at the ,moment
