"It's quite simple Mr Ellington. When you find Fowler, just ask where we can find the truth." With these words, private detective JT Ellington embarks on a seemingly simple case of tracking down a local GP with a dubious reputation and retrieving a set of stolen documents from him. For Ellington, however, things are rarely straightforward.
Dr Fowler is hiding a terrible secret and when he is gunned down outside a Bristol pub, his dying words send JT in pursuit of a truth more disturbing and deadly than he could possibly have imagined. M.P. Wright's debut novel Heartman was long listed for the Crime Writers' Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger.
