When Jack Colby hears a rumour that Old Herne’s, the club for aviation and classic car veterans, is closing, he is appalled. He has been commissioned to investigate the theft of the Porsche car belonging to its manager, the popular Mike Nelson, but now far worse problems threaten the club when brutal murder proves to be on the agenda. Jack finds himself caught between two families: the Howells, headed by a US billionaire and veteran pilot, and the Nelsons, headed by Ray, widower of Miranda Pryde, singing star of the 1940s. In his quest for the truth behind the murder, Jack crosses the path of a notorious gang-leader, and soon murder strikes again.
