Written by ‘a sublimely elegant historical novelist as addictive as crack’ (Daily Telegraph), the Inspector Troy series is perfect for fans of Le Carré, Philip Kerr and Alan Furst.


An old flame has returned to Troy’s life: Kitty Stilton, now wife of an American presidential hopeful, has come back to London, and with her, an unwelcome guest.

Private eye Joey Rork has been hired to make sure Kitty’s amorous liaisons don’t ruin her husband’s political career. But before Rork can dig any dirt, he meets a gruesome end…

But he isn’t the only one, and with the body-count mounting is it possible that the blood trail leads back to Troy’s police force and into his own forgotten past?
