Investigator David Mallin is faced with a new challenge he's not likely to forget any time soon...

When actress Karen Dale comes to him with a problem, he is immediately sucked into her world of film sets and directors. But it's her case that captures his interest. She can't recall her whereabouts for an entire day. And last time this happened, someone ended up dead.

It's Mallin's job to retrace her steps and figure out why she can't remember. He also takes it upon himself to look at what happened last time, and try to figure out the truth. But it won't be easy when everyone Karen is associated with seems to be hiding something. Especially the burly stuntmen who seem to prefer violence as a form of preservation.

With the help of George Coe and a 'borrowed' Lexus, will Mallin be able to solve this case before she loses time again? Or is there more to this story than first meets the eye?

Praise for Roger Ormerod



"Eclectic, underrated Ormerod can be relied upon to come up with the startling goods" - Sunday Times

"I am glad to announce that the detective novel is still alive and well in Mr Ormerod's skillful hands" - The Spectator

"Fast-moving, with well-orchestrated jiggery-pokery; not unlike an early Dick Francis in tone and method" - Times Literary Supplement

Roger Ormerod
(1920-2005) was a prolific writer of ingenious and densely plotted crime novels - some 35 in all - which were published in the UK and the USA. He lived in Wolverhampton and amongst other things worked as a civil servant and as a Social Security inspector - backgrounds which he made full use of in his fiction, as he did with his hobbies of painting and photography.
