The Angels’ Share series begins
Eilidh Duncan, a talented journalist, investigates UK Establishment corruption. Her explosive dossier details massive corruption in the dark heart of the UK Establishment.
Eilidh exposes a corrupt conspiracy
Aided by inside information, she uncovers extensive government procurement and contracting fraud (sound familiar?). As a result, influential criminals fear disclosure in the press and beyond.
Taken by hard men, Eilidh is plunged into an insane world of pain and despair. Before long her captors become rather antsy about holding her in London. Now, at the whim of capricious captors, her life hangs by a thread.
The criminals want silence and deniability
Corrupt officials, politicians, business people, bankers, law enforcement, spooks and organized crime have removed Eilidh from the scene. They want her to say where her files and research notes are, and for the present, that keeps her alive.
One of the main conspirators, a senior official in the security services, learns of Sam Duncan’s connection to the situation. He sows the seeds of panic over the threat of investigation and exposure by a once-covert operator. Before long, fear and knee-jerk reactions escalate into violence. No one is safe.
Sam Duncan, an unsuspecting target
Expecting a happy catch-up, Eilidh’s older brother, Sam, arrives in London. In the shadows, an enemy from his past keeps whispering in nervous ears. He meets up with a Police Inspector friend from the old days. They enjoy reminiscing, and then the darkness falls. A young woman is discovered sexually assaulted and beaten unconscious in a low-life area of town, The Met have reason the believe it is Eilidh.
Troubles brews, violence mounts, and the killing begins as poor communication, and large flustered egos throw money and thugs at their imagined problems.
Sam’s family is in danger
Sam moves his family to Ireland for protection. Using government security information, gangsters track down Sam’s family. Guaranteeing their protection means Sam must return to his old life. With no choice, he will now investigate corruption and conspiracy at the highest level. Using skills honed during the Troubles and other covert situations. Before protection is in place, the gangsters come for his family. Forced into conflict, the gloves come off.
