A tense new crime thriller from H E Joyce. A real page turner from beginning to end.
Sandra Gray was looking forward to the future with David Ryan. But tragedy strikes. Ryan is attacked and left for dead in a Boston side street on the waterfront.
A passing stranger comes to his aid. This was no ordinary passer-by; it was Frank Doyle, a private investigator. Doyle wants to know who carried out the attack, and when the police seem uninterested, he sets out to find the perpetrator. He is quick to identify a suspect, however, proving guilt takes him on a journey of deceit, corruption and greed.
