Publisher's Summary

Who would sever a tongue from a living mouth? Or kill a pathetic, homeless old man? Or frighten a young doctor into silence? The questions are piling up, and Doug McHarg can't stop asking them - especially when he's warned off by both his boss in the local police and by Scotland Yard. The pattern that emerges is of a powerful organisation with links to the throne and the White House. And all that stands against them is McHarg: a discontented copper with nothing to lose.

    "Another super Hill book"

    This book will especially appeal to conspiracy theorists imo, dealing as it does with the murky - and murderous - worlds of certain secret societies and sleazy politicians.

    Hard to write a review that doesn't contain a spoiler in one form or another; e.g. my only quibble with this book, and why I've only given it four stars, is because the ending is just a little bit too tidy, and real life isn't like that, is it?

    Highly recommended, nonetheless. A really riveting listen!

    "Bit far fetched"

    I like Reginald Hill and was looking forward to another book like ,The Woodcutter. Not quite in same league

    "Average"

    Not as good as many of his other titles but engaging enough and I read to the end.
