(From the publisher):
eader of the Opposition, Sir Alex Bolton, is being blackmailed after erotic dancer Bella uses a secret spy camera to take pictures of him performing a kinky sex act in the shower. But people in high places are determined to ensure that nothing prevents Sir Alex from becoming Britain's next prime minister. Exotic dancer Bella is shacked up with her new lover, Martin, who works as doorman at the club in Soho where Bella dances...and Martin has been telling Bella they should move in case her bank robber husband Joey either gets out of nick early or sends some friends round to the flat. Then they discover-too late for their own liking-that Joey has done a deal with the police to win an early release from prison. What's more, the two fellow bank-robbers he ratted on-Ricky Red and The Dog-are out to get him and the missing £3,000,000 stash, and they aren't messing around. Joey tries to kill Martin, and then Bella's shot onstage at the Revuebar, in Soho. Chief Inspector Preston and his sidekick, DS Johnson, are called in to investigate what threatens to become a PR nightmare, as bodies start to pile up.
