Slipping into Shadow - Craig ThomasLittle, Brown & Co., 1998, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.
Marian Pyott is just trying to be a good constituency MP when the fiancée of a constituent is found OD'd and the police announce he was probably a heroin dealer; Patrick Hyde is an investigator, tracing money and drugs in the most patient of manners.It was really he himself who had got Henderson knifed to death. He'd become greedy for what he imagined Henderson could lead him to--new faces like that of the white man, connections with the hotel chain whose casinos must be laundering operations for the heroin profits… Hyde shook his head. Both find themselves up against an international conspiracy, betrayed by those whose idea of realistic politics involves giving a free hand to evil, whether to hired assassins like Jessop, crooked businessmen like David Winterborne (the childhood friend Marian came up against in A Different War) or the military regimes of Burma and China. 480pp.
