When a car-bomb explodes in the centre of London the bomb-maker is soon identified. But there's one big problem with the chief suspect; he died fifteen years ago. DS Robert McGraw soon discovers that looking for the dead among the living is a risky business when terrorism and organised crime work together. Old friends and acquaintances aren't what they seem.
Laurence Todd left university in the mid 1970's dreaming his dreams but, because the universe works in ways we can't yet comprehend, became a teacher of Law and Business instead. He did this for more years than he cares to count but has now left the profession well and truly behind him and is focussing on stretching his imagination in directions that weren't possible whilst working in a school, and this has allowed him to develop his interests in the world of politics and espionage to create the character of Special Branch DS Robert McGraw.
