But Charles is his own worst enemy and old habits threaten to drag him down...

'the dark and gritty latest instalment in the Charles Holborne series deserves every single one of the five stars I didn't hesitate in awarding it. The writing is so vivid and visceral that I can't believe it hasn't been picked up for the small screen. This whole series is the pinnacle of crime thriller writing and I am confident that nothing will ever knock it off its pedestal.' - The Book Magnet
