Meet George Kocharyan, Cambridge Confidential Services' one and only private investigator. Amidst the usual jobs following unfaithful spouses, he is approached by the glamorous Sylvia Booker. The wife of the bursar of Morley College, Booker is worried that her daughter Lucy has fallen in with the wrong crowd.

Aided by his assistant Sandra and her teenage son, George soon realises that Lucy is sneaking off to the apartment of an older man, but perhaps not for the reasons one might suspect.

Then an unfaithful wife he had been following is found dead. As his investigation continues - enlivened by a mild stabbing and the unwanted intervention and attention of Detective Inspector Vicky Stubbing - George begins to wonder if all the threads are connected...

Industry Reviews
"A real discovery - a quirky and persuasive new entry in the ranks of British crime fiction, which introduces a distinctive private eye in the sardonic George Kocharyan." - Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

"An absolute delight - a gumshoe thriller that reminded me of why I enjoy Raymond Chandler's classic PI books so much." - Steven Dunne, author of A Killing Moon

"A controlled, artful crime story starring an arch PI and a host of acutely-observed characters. A treat." - Conrad Williams, author of Dust and Desire

"An incredibly labyrinthine and clever mystery" - Comic Book Resources

"Rodford's sense of delight in transposing American noir to modern, multicultural Cambridge is palpable" - Reviewing the Evidence
