|About the Book|
This is Yates first thriller: a tautly plotted page-turner featuring the tense, crime-busting adventures of suave Richard Chandos. Chandos is sent down from Oxford for `beating up some Communists, and on return from vacation in Biarritz witnesses a murder. Teaming up at his London club with friend Jonathan Mansel, a stratagem is devised to catch the killer. The book has equally compelling sequels, Blood Royal, An Eye For a Tooth, Fire Below and Perishable Goods.
