George Webb, a former policeman, who has left the force in disgrace sets himself up as a Private Detective. The book tells the story of him leaving the force, and his relationship with one of his female clients.
The narrative is intriguing as it builds up a picture of George’s relationships with his wife, daughter, clients and former and current colleagues. The story is built up in a series of retrospective chapters, which, as the book progresses, gradually makes more and more sense to the reader. This is a multi layered story, with many twists and turns along the way.
