The questions are piling up, and Doug McHarg can't stop asking them - especially when he's warned off by both his boss in the local police and by Scotland Yard. The pattern that emerges is of a powerful organisation with links to the throne and the White House. And all that stands against them is McHarg: a discontented copper with nothing to lose.

This was Andy Dalziel's worst case and now fifteen years on he looks set to relive it. It's another long hot summer.

    Superintendent Dalziel had a somewhat cynical view of what college administrations spent his taxes on. But when he and that over-educated Sergeant of his, Pascoe, were sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn't reckoned on a rash of fresh killings. While Pascoe rekindled an old flame on the staff, protesting students identified Dalziel as a 'fascist pig'. The Superintendent smiled with satisfaction...if that's how they wanted to play it.
