A married airline pilot is found dead in his London flat, surrounded by shards of glass and the shattered remains of a champagne bottle. But who was the man seen with the pilot on the concourse of Heathrow airport?
Private investigator Billy Rucker joins the case at the request of the pilot's brother, a well-known Tory MP. For Rucker it's the start of a long lonely trail through the city, clutching a grainy black and white photo and a gnawing suspicion in the pit of his stomach....

These books featuring ex-cop private detective Billy Rucker were new to me - this is the first in the series and I really enjoyed it.
Gordon Griffin's narration was excellent.
Set in and around London it held my interest for the whole book and I will definitely be getting the later books in the series.
Yes, I would, just to see if the slow pace was just a one-off for this story.
Didn't see it coming but still, a little disappointing. Wanted a big reveal. Didn't get it.
For the story as it is it could have been shorter.
Not the sorry of story I would choose, but I felt enjoyed this one. the narrator was perfect for the story and gives a great performance without going overboard.
