Roger Standing, commander of the British Empire and the prime minister's special adviser for education, is murdered. DCI Tom Caton is not short of suspects. But if this is a simple mugging gone wrong then why has MI5 ransacked his apartment, and why is Special Branch disrupting the investigation? And why are the widow and her son taking the news so calmly?
Roger Standing was not what he seemed...and something is rotten in the corridors of power. Will the killer strike again?

Brilliant book, well researched and written
Intelligent, well written
The scene on the roof towards the end of the book
DCI Tom Caton - It is quite unusual to find a meticulous detective who also cares about lifestyle in a novel.
I found emotional reactions to some of the very recognisable group dynamics that are described.
I will certainly buy more of Bill Rogers books - Some more Audible please.
An interesting plot
