(The fourth book in the Max Chard series)
A novel by

An adulterous MP is perfect front page material for a tabloid reporter like Max Chard - even more so when the mistress is found dead... It is not often that a Chief Crime Correspondent is expected to loiter in the dark outside a young woman's house watching her bedroom window. But there are two reasons why Max Chard is doing just that at 8 Turnbull Mews. First, he has been told to by his Editor. And secondly, because his tabloid has received a tip-off that whiter-than-white Labour MP Howard Lanche is spending his nights there with a woman who is definitely not Mrs Lanche. But there's something not quite right about this story. Why, after Max has confirmed the tip-off, is his Editor so reluctant to run the scoop? Who is the mysterious man in black also loitering in Turnbull Mews? When the body of a young woman is in Lanche's constituency. Max realises he has a far bigger story than an adulterous MP on his hands...
