“An intensely satisfying crime story” Daily Mail Private Investigator George Kocharyan is on the trail of a runaway maid, the employee of a famous TV surgeon and his beauty-queen wife. The maid is accused of stealing confidential documents, and Kocharyan’s investigation leads him to the city’s Filipino community, where he discovers the risks faced by those working far from home. Meanwhile, the discovery of a teenager’s body brings the permanently unpleasant DI Vicky Stubbing back into George’s life, and as two violent strangers cross his path also looking for the missing maid, he begins to wonder if his celebrity employers are everything they seem.
“British author Rodford’s excellent second mystery featuring everyman Cambridge PI George Kocharyan (after 2016’s The Bursar’s Wife) demonstrates that a gifted writer can create engagement and suspense without a plot centered on solving a murder.” – Publishers Weekly Starred Review
