Third within the Nick Sharman crime sequence, from the Spillane of Brit Noir
It starts off whilst Nick Sharman's eye is stuck via a lady in a trendy West finish shop. She is younger, appealing, classy—and she is shoplifting. In a second of gallantry, Sharman saves her from the indignity of being stuck. the subsequent factor he is familiar with Elizabeth Pike is his consumer. One night a number of weeks prior to, her father, multimillionaire Sir Robert Pike, took his previous carrier revolver and blew a gap in his head. Now the conflict is on for keep an eye on of his monstrous media empire. And anyone is out to get his illegitimate daughter Catherine, a stunning younger Australian with a checkered prior. So Sharman has ladies to guard. yet from whom? As Sharman swaps the dirty streets of south London for the glamour and glitz of Mayfair, it quickly turns into obvious that what lurks underneath the outside is as slimy and sleazy as something he is encountered in Brixton, and two times as dangerous.
