Harpur and Iles may have uncovered corruption, but there are still plenty of unanswered questions . . .
An investigation into an incident in another Force led Colin Harpur and his boss, Assistant Chief Constable Desmond Iles, to uncover corruption in the ranks and arrest a fellow policeman who murdered an undercover officer. But there are still many questions that remain unanswered: who ordered the execution? Why? Just how high did the conspiracy go and does the crooked power group behind the assassin still flourish? When the home office reopens the case, it is Harpur and Iles to whom the investigation is once more handed.

About the Author
Bill James has been called "the Elmore Leonard of Britain's underworld" (Kirkus Reviews) and has been named a "Master of Crime" in a mystery roundup by the London Sunday Times, which said, "There is nothing else quite like this series of police procedurals. James is concerned with the dilemmas and difficulties of policing Britain's inner cities, and he addresses these in hard-edged narratives that leave readers gasping and flinching, praying the people in these stories never come to live in their streets." In addition to the Harpur and Iles series, James is the author of other mystery series and a book on Anthony Powell. He lives in Wales.
