Detective Inspector Angel and his team investigate a puzzling case of abduction and possible murder in the south Yorkshire town of Bromersley. A rich woman marries a man she hardly knows then disappears. Investigations reveal that her husband, Harry, never existed.
Also, four men who claim they have nothing in common, staying at the luxurious Feathers Hotel, wake up in the middle of the night having been attacked in their sleep, and each suffering from a painful broken finger.
At the same time, a hit man, known as The Fixer, is at large, causing every villain and policeman to be apprehensive and on their toes.
Jonathan Keeble is an excellent narrator. I bought this book based on the skill of the narrator, only to be disappointed in the writing. The plot was disjointed, none of the characters, including the main character, Detective Inspector Angel, were fully developed. The book went from one incident to another, and tried hard in the end to knit all the disparate pieces together into an ill-fitting whole. Good narration, disappointing book.
