Jonathan Roper is a new type of detective; young, gifted and autistic. He’s a wonderful analyst but not so good with people. Many of his Scotland Yard colleagues were delighted after he was suspended for misconduct. Now those people are going to be disappointed because he’s being brought back by the bosses of his elite unit. Not that Roper is concerned with office politics. He’s got a case to solve and that’s all that matters. In this compelling thriller Roper uncovers a dark conspiracy leading to murder and human trafficking. As good as he is, the stakes are so high he needs the support of veteran Met detective Brian Hooley: soon the pair discover they are in the firing line.
