This is the second book featuring award-winning free-lance
investigative journalist Sean McManus.He is now living with his partner Liz and Praew, the young old girl they
rescued from appalling circumstances in Thailand.Sean is looking for his next story and
decides to interview a high profile Member of the European Parliament, who
turns out to be very different from the media depictions.The interview leads to much more than a story
for the tabloids, when the MEP is found dead.As Sean and Liz (assisted by a much-needed team of body-guards) try to
unravel what is going on, they come up against the arcane workings of the EU,
uncover a network of Nazi sympathisers, and encounter some very dangerous people.
The story is fast paced and the characters interesting.The subjects dealt with in the novel are
right on trend, though the plot details may not always be convincing. The book
appears at a time when the EU is under close scrutiny and the regular insertion
of pieces of factual information about the EU adds a certain edge to the events
on the page.

fiction has been my favourite reading material since as a teenager I first
spotted Agatha Christie on the library bookshelves.For twenty-five years the commute to and from
London provided plenty of reading time.I am fortunate to live in Cambridge, where my local crime fiction book
club, Crimecrackers, meets at Heffers Bookshop .I enjoy attending crime fiction events and
currently organise events for the Margery Allingham Society.
