Knight Sinister Publisher's Summary

Hugo Bishop: He's not a cop, nor a private eye. He simply shows up to help. He's the figure at the edge of the floodlights as a body is pulled from the river. He's the brilliant fashion plate who knocks elbows with psychopaths. Wielding a pungent sense of humor, he pursues danger in an arena of exotic intrigues and and deadly pleasures. In Bishop's high-risk world, "The only thing worth going for is checkmate."

Hugo Bishop sets out to find the missing piece of a love triangle. Nicole Pedley's husband is a famous London theatrical director. Her lover is a handsome young actor who has made a sudden exit. With the help of his able assistant Vera Gorringe, Bishop sets off to find the missing man, immersing himself in a deliciously back-stabbing, backstage world of envy, passion, and enough phony baloney to choke you dead.
