Private investigator Simon Loake is reunited with the girlfriend he has not seen for twenty years and she asks him to recover the millions of pounds missing from her father’s estate. Jenny Patel, Simon’s partner, goes undercover at the University of Derby to investigate alleged Muslim extremists. When prostitutes start being murdered Simon and Jenny are bought in as consultants and it soon becomes clear that the missing money, the extremists and the murders are connected.

"A very well written novel based on a detailed knowledge of how the criminal justice system works - or in some cases doesn't work. The novel gets better as it goes on making it difficult to put down."

- Phil Whitney, author of Relative Values and Affairs of State.
