About the Book

London, England - 1956 Devon Stone, best-selling author of murder mysteries, has had a target on his back over the years for various reasons. He thought that was now in the distant past. But he was mistaken. A dear friend who had been murdered a few years earlier had suspected that her late husband’s death was more than just an accident. And she was correct. A casual visit to an exhibition of World War II wartime photography triggers the conclusion to a plot that began as that war was coming to an end. A day at the steeplechase races, including a shocking equine occurrence, brings Devon into the crosshairs once again as he learns that a violent and dangerous person thought long-since dead is very much alive. A cold-blooded, sadistic assassin is drawn into the narrative by sheer happenstance. Following a brazen, brutal murder attempt of another of Devon’s friends, he discovers that there is more than one nefarious person on his trail. A turbulent past intertwines with a surprising future. Devon Stone must now step up his game if he hopes to remain alive. And so begins another cat and mouse game…but who is the cat? And who is the mouse?
