Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Synopsis: Two days before Christmas, hedonist MP Henry Drayton-Maye invites a handsome stranger home for dinner and drinks. However his new acquaintance is an escaped convict and has other plans. When summoned, police are mystified: Except for Henry's motorbike, and his reputation, nothing appears to be stolen or damaged.
Months later, the convict's ex-partner in crime, Rex Raven, is found dead inside his locked study. The verdict is suicide. But then Rex's teenage daughter disappears, along with a mysterious Scandinavian youth.
In a race against time to find the missing teenagers, Detective Inspector Crombie must first untangle a web of intrigue woven around family secrets and is furious to discover that even his superiors have deceived him.
But as the big fellow already knows, everybody lies.
