An Eye For An Eye

In one of the most luxurious cities on earth, a billion-dollar deal is about to go badly wrong. A lavish night out is about to end in murder. And the British government is about to be plunged into crisis.

Thousands of miles away, in the leafy Berkshire countryside, Lord Hartley, the latest in a line of peers going back over two hundred years, lies dying. But his will triggers an inheritance with explosive consequences.

Two deaths. Continents apart. Completely unrelated.

So why are they at the centre of a master criminal’s plot for revenge?

And can Scotland Yard’s Chief Superintendent William Warwick uncover the truth before an innocent man’s life and legacy are destroyed?
