Freelance Death, Paperback


Rod Lorton wants revenge. After his wife's death, he discovers unsavoury truths about her and her former employer, PR chief Ivor Newley. Called in to investigate Lorton's new-found enemy, private detective William Dougal uncovers a weakness to exploit: Newley's rare collection of coins, coins that would leave Newley susceptible to blackmail if the collection were to disappear ...That was the plan.

But the outcome throws up something far more sinister and infinitely more dangerous than Dougal could have expected.

For instead of being met with a bundle of cash when he arrives to seal the deal, the only payment Dougal is faced with is a corpse.
