A search for the truth is about to begin...

When the body of a foreman turns up on a building site, the insurers call in solicitor Alistair Duncan to investigate and protect their interests. The official line is he was accidentally electrocuted - so why do Duncan's investigations suggest otherwise? And why had witnesses lied at the inquest? What was the guilty secret of the beautiful and seductive young widow, June Hillyer, a girl with tastes beyond her means? Why, too, was Dwight Riley the victim of brutal intimidation?

As the sinister nature of the investigations unfold, the story rushes to a menacing climax when some unexpected answers are revealed. The third book in the Alistair Duncan Series sees enquiry agent Charlie Wilkinson returning, as well as Lucy, Duncan's saucy and taunting secretary.

"The climax is tense... authentic" - Western Gazette

"This exciting story, with its wonderfully vivid court scenes... " - South Wales Argus

"Do read this superb novel" - Sunday Independent
