'Underwood's novels are insidiously hard to put down' Independent
It is unfortunate that Jeremy Harper was the one to stumble upon the victim of an armed robbery. A young barrister, he is more used to holding court than being a witness. He also finds himself curiously linked to the man in the dock.
It is a trial with deep undercurrents, and one that dramatically comes to a head when a strangled body is found in the town hall.
Enter Detective-Superintendent Simon Manton of Scotland Yard, who will not rest until the final clue falls into place . . .
