About this book:
A divisive prime minister. A long-buried body. A plot to bring him down.
The bigger the secret the more dangerous it is to lie.
On the morning of the Tory Party conference, the bones of a young woman's hand are discovered in a London building site.
Jed Fowkes, Special Adviser at the Treasury, confronts Prime Minister Robin Sandford with a terrible accusation. He claims the hand belongs to someone they once knew well: a young woman whom Sandford murdered years ago.
With his career on the brink of ruin, the Prime Minister's only hope is to enlist the unofficial help of MI5. A decision which leads him into a new world of espionage, illegal trafficking and murder.
And the deeper he goes, the more treacherous the game becomes. Because now it's not just his life on the line; it's the future of the state itself.
