Prominent Syme Park Millionaire Disappears… The story of the Bristol PI and the blood stained parquet floor grows curiouser and curiouser.

As the headlines grow more cynical by the day, Jack Shepherd knows that his search for a missing retired bookie can only end in misery.

But in accepting May Marsh’s commission to find her husband, Shepherd doesn’t anticipate how high the odds stacked against him are as he is pitched into a world of ruthless exploitation, unbending violence and a heart-stopping confrontation with old enemies – the city’s criminal royalty, the Settle family.

Another masterly thriller from the author of Closing the Distance.
