The second DI Charlie Resnick novel, from the master of British crime writing.
A kilo of cocaine. Hardly what two small-time crooks were expecting to find when they broke into TV director Harold Roy's shabby mansion. But nor was Harold's frustrated wife expecting to fall in love with one of the intruders. Now she's going to make a deal with him - for both her husband and the drugs.
But the precious powder belongs to someone else. And he wants it back. So if he feels he's been double-crossed, there's no telling what might happen.
Detective Inspector Resnick has a hunch that there's more to this story than meets the eye. And as his investigations lead him down the mean streets of the TV industry and an inner city drugs ring, it's obvious that more than one person is dancing on thin ice.
