Albert Black has been accused of murder, and the death penalty stands, “Will goodness and mercy prevail?” - alas no, not in 1950s New Zealand, not with the shadow of the Second World War affecting how politicians make decisions, and not with the prejudicial Mazengarb Report being delivered to every household in the country, spreading moral panic.
Dan Calder is settled in New Zealand after his hectic time in The agency, the first in the Dan Calder trilogy. He has settled down with Tara Danes (from The agency) and they have adopted a dog, Jet. Dan is doing contract work for the Police and all is calm, until he gets a call from his old mate Nick Hetherington. Then Dan flies back to the UK to help Nick, whose daughter, Amber, has been arrested and accused of unlawful killing, possibly murder.
