The Delicate Ape, Paperback / softback Book

The Delicate Ape Paperback / softback

Part of the Murder Room series

Paperback / softback


Diplomatic corps man Piers Hunt watches the glittering lights of Broadway from his Hotel Astor room.

The German girl's mocking voice returns to his mind yet again: 'More melodrama, Piers?' Yes: this time it's 'more melodrama', but with a vengeance. In New York incognito, only Piers knows that his superior, Samuel Anstruther, has been murdered, possibly to get him out of the way of a plan to withdraw a police force that governs post-Second World War Germany.

Rumours abound that the Germans might be allowed free reign once again. Piers is a man of peace, but he may have to get his hands dirty if he doesn't want to be murdered - before telling the world what Anstruther knew . . .
