Overview

Detective Sally Bithron has been tipped off by an informer about a clandestine meeting in Cardiff, Wales, of two sets of drug pushers. But her stakeout goes wrong when violence and murder ensues. Three men are convicted; but there is a fourth, Frank Latimer, who is found not guilty partly because of Sally's evidence, or lack of it, and partly because of the lying testimony of Frank's girlfriend. But Sally and Frank grew up together, and were briefly childhood sweethearts. Could her evidence have been influenced by this? The one grows up on the side of law and order; the other. . . Sally's superiors are convinced Frank was guilty. And so are the patriarchs of a big, and very unpleasant, South London crime gang whose daughter, brutally battered in the bungled meeting, eventually dies in a Cardiff hospital after months on a life support system. Their code demands revenge; perhaps against Sally's informant, and perhaps against Frank and Sally. And perhaps against all three. . .

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Craig, better known as Bill James (Between Lives, 2004, etc.), shows just how dangerous it can be for a police officer to keep a confidential informant confidential. Detective Constable Sally Bithron is sitting outside the rented Cardiff house where Brian Edward Aulus, aka Godzilla, has assured her a drug deal will go down when all hell breaks loose inside, leaving two men dead, a third dying and a fourth victim, mob daughter Avril Kale, comatose. Protecting Godzilla from the leaks that can crop up in even the best regulated cop shops, Sally tells her boss, Raging Bullfinch, and his boss, Supt. Ray Regnal, that she just happened to be driving past in time to have the authorities come pick up the bodies and chase the four men in balaclavas she saw leaving the scene. But it's obvious that they suspect otherwise. So does Sally's childhood friend Frank Latimer, who's soon picked up as Suspect Four. In a masterful interrogation notable for James's trademark circumlocutions, all parties involved make it clear that they each know the score and that nobody's going to give an inch. The interrogation is a model for the rest of the dialogue in this terse, nasty little tale, which involves threats so deliciously veiled in so many directions that it's just as well most of them don't pan out. So understated in its silky menace that you might think it had actually been written by Henry James.
