Harry Jones has lost everything, his seat at parliament and his fortune, but he still has Jemma. Focusing on the one thing he has left, he proposes, and his life finally seems to be coming together again. But this exciting new phase in his life opens a Pandora’s Box of chaos that belongs firmly in the past.
As Harry is forced to confront unanswered questions about his father, who died ten years ago leaving him his fortune, he becomes obsessed with discovering the truth.
The investigation travels from arson in Bermuda to a graveyard in Patras, from the High Table at his father’s old Oxford College to a pornographer’s den.
Does Harry know when to stop, or will he end up making himself judge, jury and executioner of those he holds responsible. It is only at the end of his journey that he comes to realise he is merely a pawn in a much larger game…
