Live Bait, Paperback / softback Book

Live Bait Paperback / softback

Part of the A Tom Knight Mystery series

Paperback / softback


Knight's surveillance work has dried up and he's reduced to accepting a gig as a life model for a reclusive painter.

When she's found dead in the same location as a suspicious death 30 years earlier, instinctively he knows they're connected - but cannot find the proof. Enter a femme fatale in her sixties who puts Knight on the trail of priceless stolen Chinese art, shady dealings in a country house - and a dangerous con man.

Even with decades' experience, he finds himself unexpectedly in the grip of events, and at the business end of a shotgun. Proving that you're just as young as you feel, the Tom Knight mysteries combine delicious comedy with a precision engineered plot.
