The earthshaking decade of the 1960s comes to a sweeping and dangerous close, as William Shaw's detective duo battle the most powerful members of London society.
After being wounded in the line of duty, Detective Sergeant Breen recuperates on the family farm of his former partner, Helen Tozer. To fill the long and empty hours, he reviews the open case file for a murder that has haunted Helen for years: that of her younger sister. Breen discovers that the teenage victim had been having a secret affair with James Fletchet, the son of an affluent local landowner, celebrated for his service in Kenya during the Mau Mau Uprising.
Breen and Tozer return to London's Criminal Investigation Division, where their questions about Fletchet's past are met with resistance and suspicion. The deeper they probe, the more people they implicate in their investigation. New Scotland Yard doesn't look kindly upon breaking rank, and it's only a matter of time before Breen and Tozer make themselves a target.
Shaw's stirring, heartfelt and diabolically plotted mystery series is everything a reader looks for: enveloping, invigorating, and wonderfully entertaining.
William Shaw is an award-winning pop-culture journalist, who has has written regularly for the UK'sObserver, Independent,andTelegraph, as well as theNew York Times, WiredandDetails. His previous novels to feature Breen and Tozer areShe's Leaving HomeandThe Kings of London. Shaw lives in Sussex, England.

"A proper conspiracy thriller . . . William Shaw delivers a perfect motive in the third of his excellent Breen and Tozer mysteries . . . It involves real history, real people, real crimes with real consequence."-Jeff Noon, Spectator [UK]
