About this item
The mysterious return of a deceased film icon forces media man Root Wilson—the director’s obituarist—to hit London’s streets in search of the truth. But powerful forces and hennchmen are determined to stop Root, and he soon finds that he’s a murder suspect himself . . . not to mention a likely next victim. Moving swiftly between Peckham and Parliament Hill, Stoke Newington and Soho, this intricately plotted thriller is shot through with the mood of a basement jazz club at 1am. Inspired by The Third Man, it transforms London into a noir landscape full of fast-talking antagonists, matchless and smart-as-whip femmes fatales, and a River Thames that plays as big a part in the action as any other character.
