The seventh Ben Schroeder legal thriller

'A good police force is one that catches more crooks than it employs' - Sir Robert Mark

A clever, accomplished Cambridge graduate with a good job and an attentive lover, Imogen Lester seems to have the world at her feet. But when her parents are murdered abroad while working for the Diplomatic Service, she is suddenly thrown headlong into a murky world of espionage and organised crime.

When she is charged with drug trafficking, even Ben Schroeder's skills may not be enough to save her - unless a shadowy figure from Ben's past can survive long enough to unmask a web of graft and corruption...


Praise for Peter Murphy

'Murphy's clever legal thriller revels in the chicanery of the English law courts of the period' - Independent

'Murphy paints a trenchant picture of establishment cover-up, and cannily subverts the cliches of the legal genre in his all-too-topical narrative' - Financial Times
