After a brutal murder… Fear is the name of the game
A married airline pilot lies dead in his London flat – his torso scarred by a shattered champagne bottle left protruding from his abdomen.
But who was the man filmed with Teddy as he left Heathrow? What secrets is he hiding?
Ex-copper turned private investigator Billy Rucker joins the case on the exhortation of Teddy’s brother, a well-known MP. For Rucker it’s the start of a lonely trail through the city, clutching a grainy black and white photograph and a gnawing suspicion at the pit of his stomach.
Until a chilling phone call in the night changes everything…
Packed with chilling suspense, Adam Baron is perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride, Robert Bryndza or Peter James.
