Hugo Bishop. He's not a cop, nor a private eye. He simply shows up to help. He's the figure at the edge of the floodlights as a body is pulled from the river. He's the brilliant fashion plate who knocks elbows with psychopaths. Wielding a pungent sense of humor, he pursues danger in an arena of exotic intrigues and deadly pleasures. In Bishop's high-risk world. "The only thing worth going for is checkmate" Queen in Danger - Hugo Bishop seeks two murderers on the loose in London. The first homicidal maniac is Mervyn, husband of fashion editor Thelma Speight. Mervyn is an asylum escapee wanted for a young woman's death. Then there is The Person, an elusive and anonymous killer who could strike anyone at anytime. With his brilliant assistant Vera Gorringe, Bishop plunges into the decadent game of high fashion, where murder is king and Bishop is merely an expendable pawn.
