Jonathan Selkirk, known as a ruthless, powerful lawyer, receives a threatening letter advising him to make a will. Only hours later he is recovering in the Leek Cottage Hospital from a suspected heart attack. Late that night Selkirk mysteriously disappears.
The discovery of a dead body two days later leaves Inspector Joanna Piercy, in her fourth outing, coping not only with a murder investigation, but with the arrival of the Regional Crime Squad. The murder is believed to be the work of a professional contract killer and the formidable Superintendent of the Squad is determined to trap him in the village of Leek.
