Anthony Cade agrees to help his friend James McGrath. In order to do that he goes to London to deliver the draft of memoir to the publisher, and to return letters to the woman who wrote them. On the first night in London, the letters have been stolen by hotel waiter and memoir has been picked up by the fraud.
The plot thickens at a fast pace, as dead bodies start to appear. With the addition of a bit of romance, crime investigation and politics, you get a great book.
This is the first book that introduces Superintendent Battle to the audience, however, he is not the main character.
I liked this book. A lot of action, plot twists, likable characters made that it was a pleasure to read.
My rate: 7/10
