A ship leaves Canada bound for France but there’s a storm at sea and the vessel is wrecked in the English Channel. 

Seventy five years later the chess playing detective, Davies King, investigates the connection between the escape of a handful of petty criminals from a prison van; a vicious murder, a sunken ship in the English Channel, a corrupt American politician, and ‘organised crime’.

Will Britain’s most annoying petty criminals outwit the stressed-out detective? 

Faced with overwhelming odds, the exhausted Davies King must come to terms with failure and re-ignite ‘loyalty’. On the doorstep of bribery, corruption and kidnap, the detective recognises an emerging catastrophe which is likely to destroy the foundations of an Anglo-American agreement and destroy that special relationship. 

But loyalty is the last stand and it’s beyond his control.


Another epic page turner from the pen of Paul Anthony. He grabs you on page one and won't let you go until the end. A great plot from a formidable crime writer.....
