Chris Ludlow is troubled by various problems, not least those relating to his girlfriend, Jane, and her unstable ex-husband. In search of a publisher for the memoirs of Derek Headlam, a renowned and prolific art faker, Chris secures a contract. Within days the publisher is murdered, and Chris and his brother, Max, are warned at the point of a gun to abandon the project. Are Headlam’s former partners in a scheme to sell his fakes into the art market covering their tracks? One of them is the mysterious ‘D’, ex-British Secret Service, and, like Headlam, a past associate of the traitor, Anthony Blunt. Meanwhile, Chris is helping his journalist friend, Toby Greenslade, to investigate the use of illegal drugs in golf, and golf pro, Jack Mason to expose an illegal betting scam in the game. Faced with threats of extreme violence from various quarters, Chris, with the invaluable help of Max, sets about resolving all these problems. Praise for the previous five Chris Ludlow thrillers: ‘Imaginative. . . the plot is water-tight’ Sunday Times ‘Unusual, fast-moving, perceptive’ Daily Mail ‘Goes at a gallop from fairway to green’ Irish Independent
