When the car of eminent sociologist Sir John Drewson is stolen from an airport car park, Detective Chief Superintendent Mitchell quickly links the theft to a failed wages snatch in south London. But only a few days later a body is found in the boot of the Jaguar, and not long after that a young woman drowns near to Sir John's home.


Returning from his trip abroad to a double murder enquiry, Sir John and those that surround him find themselves embroiled in a cat and mouse game of discovery and evasion. As suspicion clouds the air, time is running out to catch the killer.
