IT'S THE ULTIMATE NIGHTMARE. Terrorists have smuggled the components for a dirty bomb into London - and now they’re going to detonate it. To extract every ounce of killing power they’ve found a place where the prevailing winds will carry a radioactive cloud through the heart of the British capital. Faced with the unthinkable, the Prime Minister personally intervenes to insist that Scotland Yard put Jonathan Roper and Brian Hooley on the case. The pair are forced to put their own lives in danger as they race against the clock to avoid disaster. Despite his seniority, Detective Chief Inspector Hooley has a light touch, making him popular with his staff. Roper, on the other hand, doesn’t see the need for social niceties, and his autism makes him appear aloof, or high-handed. The DCI can see beyond the problems and the two men have formed a remarkable bond. One that will last as long as the DCI can withstand a barrage of deeply personal remarks, providing the basis for some laugh out loud moments in this is compelling crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages.
