Lawyer Robert Vere learns the truth about an old crime and finds himself fighting not only for justice, but for his own life.
London in the Sixties. A violent bank robbery. The getaway driver sentenced to death by hanging. His accomplices escape with the money, vanishing entirely. A sealed letter from the condemned man handed to a young solicitor with instructions not to open until after his execution. Did he name his accomplices?
Years later Robert Vere, a vigilant lawyer, together with his fashion journalist partner Yvonne Clarkson, find themselves privy to the contents of the letter, unwittingly triggering a chain of events that bring them to the attention of a ruthless master criminal who will stop at nothing to protect his identity and empire.
Even Vere is not prepared for the twists and turns in store – as unexpected as they are bloody. As the bodies pile up, Vere finds the killer’s reach getting closer to everything – and everyone – he loves. Soon he is fighting not only for justice, but for his own life.
