(From the publisher):
Walking down Fleet Street, not thinking of danger, Roger West - "Handsome" West of the Yard - had danger flung at him viciously - vitriol meant for him or for a passer-by. A girl was burned as well as West. Was she the intended victim? West wanted to believe that, but could not, for long.
Someone among the dangerous criminals he had put behind bars was free and vengeful. West, his family and his friends, were threatened. As he worked remorselessly to trace the criminal he walked with danger, which drew closer, deadlier...
