Detective J. T. Ellington returns in this slick and fast-paced follow up to the critically acclaimed Heartman.
'It's quite simple Mr Ellington. When you find Fowler, just ask where we can find the truth.'
With these words, private detective J.T. Ellington embarks on a seemingly simple case of tracking down a local GP with a dubious reputation and retrieving a set of stolen documents from him.
For Ellington, however, things are rarely straightforward. Dr Fowler is hiding a terrible secret, and when he is gunned down outside a Bristol pub, his dying words send J. T. in pursuit of a truth more disturbing and deadly than he could possibly have imagined.
