Overview

The 9th Jonas Forbes Thriller
1963 The British Establishment becomes rocked by the ‘sex-and-espionage’ scandal centred on John Profumo, Cabinet Minister, and Christine Keeler, a friend of Stephen Ward, an osteopath charged with living on her immoral earnings. Christine is linked with Eugene Ivanov, a charming Soviet attaché, making the case a matter of national security. Both Christine and Ward are receiving threatening letters so the Home Office hire Jonas Forbes to protect them, at least until after Ward’s trial.
As ‘Jimmy Neville’ Jonas infiltrates Ward’s circle and soon realises how determined is the Establishment to secure Ward’s conviction. He becomes attached to Ward and some members of his circle, especially Sheree Thompson. Then somebody tries to get Jonas killed and the stakes rise drastically. Sheree disappears and Jonas clashes with a gang headed by Laurence ‘Chopper’ Simpson and his weird brother, Anansi. Sheree’s body is found and it appears the sex-killer has struck before. Jonas gives evidence on behalf of Ward although a guilty verdict seems inevitable. And then Jonas disappears.
Is the sex-killer also targeting Ward? How does Jonas come to develop future nightmares involving zombies and sewers? What is the link between Simpson’s gang and Ward’s circle?
This lightly-written thriller, rich in period detail, uses actual legal and police accounts.
