Third case for Nathan Hawk, the whisky-loving ex-copper with an ever-ready temper and a gloomy view of humanity.
The curiosity of his son and the murderous greed of a ruthless politician force Hawk to not only investigate a disturbing missing person's case but defend the thing he loves the most, his family.
The author has penned many a TV show including Midsomer Murders and Z-Cars and it shows in the clever plot and cracking pace.
When the chance discovery of a metallic plate used to hold human bones together sets a few noses twitching in Hawk's local area - not least that of his son Jaikie, flushed from recent Hollywood success - he reluctantly promises to look into the matter. Sensing the plate has a disturbing story to tell - a story, which he soon learns, involves a brilliant young engineer and his revolutionary invention, a ruthless politician, greed, altruism and murder - his hunch soon proves correct, and Hawk is forced to defend against an attack on everything he holds dear.
