When the body of the British Home Secretary’s son is found in an alleyway where he had been battered to death, Larry Dexxman, a seventy-five year old private detective is thrown into the middle of a political minefield that could easily cost him his life.
His only protection is Sally, a tiny Shih-tsu/Yorkshire terrier cross, Penny his twenty-four-year-old assistant and his own combat experience gained in the armed forces fifty years ago.
Narrowly surviving several attempts on his life, Larry must try to protect those around him while, at the same time, keeping his promise to the murdered boy’s girlfriend that he would find out who was responsible and see that they were brought to justice.
When the Director General of MI6 is murdered by an infiltrating foreign power, it soon becomes evident that his daughter Hayley’s life is also in danger, and she turns to Larry and Penny as the only people that she can trust.
The Home Secretary is powerless to intervene, fearing for his own daughter, Denise’s life, unless someone can remove her from danger under the nose of the single officer appointed by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command, and the watching agents of the Foreign Power.
Eventually, the danger to Larry’s life, as he probes deeper into the conspiracy, is acknowledged, and he is placed under police protection himself. But he still must find a way to keep Denise safe, even if he has to kidnap her, without, at the same time, alerting CTC or his own bodyguard to his plans.
