A 'razor-sharp' and 'dark and dangerous' thriller (City Life): a man seeking his wife's killer finds himself embroiled with a sex-hungry divorcee and a drugs ring rife with corruption . . . but there are darker secrets yet to uncover.
Peter Holford was recently an inmate of a psychiatric institution, but he's out, and on the trail of the man he believes murdered his wife. He's given a lift one dark, wet night by an attractive young woman; Diane Locke is a divorcee and hungry for sex - but she befriends him, even shielding him from the police as he finds himself caught up in a conspiracy involving drugs, fraud and murder . . .
In Blind Needle, 'a novel of dark and dangerous ideas' (Glasgow Herald), Trevor Hoyle takes the traditional thriller and adds a new twist.
