(From the publisher):
Can it be true? Has the Fat Man really sung?
Caught in a huge Semtex explosion, it seems the only thing preventing Superintendent Andy Dalziel from stepping through Death's door is his size - and sheer bloody-mindedness.
An injured DCI Pascoe works to uncover what he feels is a conspiracy - despite the security services believing the blast was an accident in which the terrorists blew themselves up.
Who, then, are the mysterious Knights Templar, bringing the war in Iraq back home with their gruesome acts of vengeance? What have they got to do with a hit-and-run on Yorkshire CID's most inept officer? And, most importantly, will Dalziel ever wake up to hear the truth...?
