- YA planning application for a large quarry extension is so fraught with danger it cannot be approved by the County Council.
Harry Caldwell is called in by his old friend, Aidan to search out corruption. With the help of his partner, Sam and two unlikely characters, Julie and Alex, he uncovers a web of deceit that leads to murder and destruction. The whole adventure takes place against the backdrop of a real
court case, Richardson v. First Secretary of State.
Richardson is the master of characterisation. Coupled with his storytelling you have an explosive novel.
The worrying aspect is that the reader is unable to differentiate between fact and fiction. Brilliant!
