James Tyrone was the troubleshooting gracing correspondent of the Sunday Blaze
, a newspaper dedicated to exposing scandals I the noisiest (and most profitable) way. Ty was accustomed to hot water, but from the day a Fleet Street colleague died after give him some serious advice, he found himself wading deep into more danger than he expected. What he thought to be the fairly routine uncovering of a minor racing fraud turned into a major hunt involving ruthless international crime. A spanner in the works gets chewed up by the cogs, Ty couldn't emerge unscathed. And throughout he had to deal with the further problems of his difficult marriage and a perilous liaison with a beautiful, chilly-hearted dress designer.
