Traumatized by his confrontation with a serial killer and subsequent nervous breakdown, Detective Inspector Kavanagh transfers to London. But when he is assigned the case of kidnapped advertising supremo Martin Foyle, Kavanagh knows he will come under scrutiny from his bosses in the Met.

From AudioFile:

Released from the hospital after a nervous collapse, DI Frank Kavanagh is transferred to London. On shaky ground with department higher-ups, Kavanagh uses work to distract himself from his personal life. His wife has left him, he lives alone with his cat, and he's looking for female companionship through the London lonely hearts columns. When Martin Foyle, an advertising CEO, is kidnapped, Kavanagh wonders whether the kidnapping isn't just a scheme for Foyle to raise some much needed funds. Hayward Morse gives an intelligent reading, especially after a charred body is found late in the story. Armstrong's ingenious plotting offers an introspective look into Kavanagh's psychological turmoil, and Morse's spot-on performance elevates the tale into something more than a police procedural.
