Will Dylan is an electoral favourite – intelligent, sharp and good-looking, he is the government’s new golden boy. Jonas Killey is a small-time lawyer – determined, uncompromising and obsessed, he is hounding Dylan in the hope of bringing him into disrepute. Believing he has information that can connect Dylan with an illegal procedure during a trade union merger, he starts to spread the word, provoking a top-level fluttering. At the crucial time of a general election, no government can afford bad press. Jonas suddenly finds himself pursued by those who want to keep him quiet, but he is determined that the truth will be heard.

Born in Lincolnshire, England, Michael Francis Gilbert graduated in law from the University of London in 1937. He first spent some time teaching at a prep school, which was followed by six years serving with the Royal Horse Artillery. During World War II he was captured following service in North Africa and Italy, and his prisoner-of-war experiences later led to the writing of the acclaimed novel Death in Captivity in 1952. After the war, Gilbert worked as a solicitor in London, but his writing continued throughout his legal career. In addition to novels, he wrote stage plays and scripts for radio and television. He is, however, best remembered for his novels, which have been described as witty and meticulously plotted espionage and police procedural thrillers, but which exemplify realism. Much of Michael Gilbert’s writing was done on the train as he traveled from home to his office in London.
