Publisher's Summary

Who would sever a tongue from a living mouth? Or kill a pathetic, homeless old man? Or frighten a young doctor into silence? The questions are piling up, and Doug McHarg can't stop asking them - especially when he's warned off by both his boss in the local police and by Scotland Yard. The pattern that emerges is of a powerful organisation with links to the throne and the White House. And all that stands against them is McHarg: a discontented copper with nothing to lose.


What the Critics Say

Another super Hill book

This book will especially appeal to conspiracy theorists imo, dealing as it does with the murky - and murderous - worlds of certain secret societies and sleazy politicians.

Hard to write a review that doesn't contain a spoiler in one form or another; e.g. my only quibble with this book, and why I've only given it four stars, is because the ending is just a little bit too tidy, and real life isn't like that, is it?

Highly recommended, nonetheless. A really riveting listen!

Bit far fetched

I like Reginald Hill and was looking forward to another book like ,The Woodcutter. Not quite in same league
