It's Detroit, 1971. Harry Levin, scrap metal dealer and holocaust survivor, learns that his daughter has been killed in a car accident.
Travelling to Washington DC, he's told by Detective Taggart that the German diplomat, who was drunk, has been released and afforded immunity; he will never face charges.
So Harry is left with only one option - to discover the identity of this man, follow him back to Munich and hunt him down.
The first of a two-hander, Peter Leonard's new novel is a classic cat-and-mouse thriller.
Told with swagger, brutal humour and not a little violence, it follows a good man who is forced to return to the horrors of his past.
