State SecretsBook - 2017
Former Chief Constable Bob Skinner has left the police service, but trouble has a habit of following him around. Now he finds himself in the corridors of power at the Palace of Westminster as a shocking act befalls the nation.
Hours before the Prime Minister is due to make an explosive Commons statement, she is discovered in her office with a letter opener driven through her skull.
On the scene, Skinner is swiftly enlisted by the Security Service to lead the search for an assassin. He has forty-eight hours to crack the case - before the press unleash their wrath.
There are many in the tangled web of government offering grounds for suspicion. But the outcome will be one that not even Skinner himself could predict . . .
