Publisher's Summary

Photographer Philip Holt established his reputation as an amateur detective in The Desperate People, when he proved that his brother Rex had been murdered and solved the case. This time, his skills are again in demand after he meets Robert Scranton, a wealthy American, on the plane returning to England from the USA.

When Scranton learns that his son Vance, a student at a new university in the South of England, has been shot dead, he asks Holt to investigate the killing. Things snowball - but in strange directions. Forgery, blackmail, smuggling and yet more murder are among the pitfalls that Holt comes up against in this gripping adventure.

Exciting and suspenseful, this tightly-plotted story is packed with twists and turns right up to the surprising, shocking dénouement...

From the creator of popular radio detective Paul Temple comes this thrilling sequel to The Desperate People, read by Neil Pearson.
