(A book in the John Samson series)
A novel by


The Wife-Smuggler

'I want to contact someone in Poland. SHe lives in Warsaw, but I don't know her phone number of her full address'
'If you know her name,' said Samson, 'I can do it while you wait. If you don't know her name it'll take a little longer.'

John Freeman had met Anna on a visit to Poland. From that visit many strange events followed. Now he badly needed to get in touch with Anna again, and sought the help of Samson - the fat detective, obsessed by clocks and the passage of time, who has appeared in Miles Tripp's previous books.
Anna had been a stranger when they met in Warsaw, and yet had taken Freeman very readily and quickly into her bed. Both were married - but neither marriage was looking very good at the time. Anna subsequently asked a s small service of him: to take a package back to London on his return flight.
Simple? Well not exactly. Freeman makes his second trip to Warsaw in a different role, this time as the 'wife-smuggler'; and this time his troubles begin in earnest. The trap into which he falls has the elements of subtlety and surprise which are characteristic of this writer's work.
