Product description

From the Back Cover

It began as a simple inquiry; had Philip Cass savagely murdered his beautiful mistress, wife of India's soon-to-be Prime Minister, V K Sharmer? Patrick Hyde, ex-SIS agent, owes his life to Cass so he agrees to investigate the case – unofficially. He believes Cass when he says he has been framed – but the truth does not suit anyone else, especially Sharmer, who is hiding several very deadly secrets. When Hyde uncovers them, it's not only his own life he puts in danger because Sharmer does not care how many innocents die to keep him safely in power…

Craig Thomas is in top form in this superbly constructed thriller, building the tension exquisitely to its edge-of-the-seat climax.
