Series: Tweed and Co.
(From the publisher):
Paula Grey comes within minutes of death when a lunch party at a remote mansion in Cornwall is brutally massacred.
Tweed was due to be among the guests. Within hours his London HQ is blown to pieces by a huge bomb. Is Tweed the target? As a vast apparatus closes in on him, he is abandoned by the British Prime Minister.
What role is played by attractive Jennie Blade, girl friend of arrogant 'Squire' Gaunt? By equally attractive Eve Amberg, English wife of Swiss banker, Julius Amberg?
The shadow of Washington DC seems to hover over them like an immense vulture. Tweed's struggle for survival becomes trans-Atlantic. Losing the support of Downing Street, he flies with his team to Zurich. Switzerland proves no longer a safe haven as attempts to exterminate Tweed and his team continue. The action sweeps from Zurich to the snowbound Vosges mountains in France.
What is the great secret which must remain concealed no matter how many are murdered? Is there a link with six unsolved serial killings in America's Deep South?
Tweed fights on, slowly fitting together the pieces of the jigsaw. The mystery's solution is almost too frightening to contemplate.
