The Big Hit(1975)
(The third book in the Apples Carstairs series)
A novel by Simon Myles (Ken Follett)
Winston Divine is a star - a brilliant, successful musician. Tycoons fight to manage him; girls and critics love him. So why is he acting so scared? He rings an old friend, Apples Carstairs, and dies minutes later. Apples wants to know why - and uncovers a web of bribery, blackmail and corruption extending throughout the music business. At its centre is a fat spider. Apples treads on the web. The spider pounces. Third and last in the Apples Carstairs series.
