Beautiful Angeles Falco and her sister Maura have made an appointment to see private investigator, Sam Turner. Maura, uncharacteristically, doesn't show up, but Angeles, who is blind, can speak for both of them: they are convinced that they are being stalked. There is no evidence, but Sam sets great store by instinct, so he takes the case. Besides, Angeles is right - she is being stalked. Maura turns up horribly murdered on the moors, and Sam and his crew are right up to their necks in a very scary case indeed. To top it all, Geordie's brother Ralph turns up out of the blue, and he's not what you'd call an asset to the team.
Since his debut in 1995 John Baker has been one of the most highly regarded of Britain's new wave of crime writers. The time is now ripe for his commercial breakthrough, and SHOOTING IN THE DARK, his richest, most complex novel yet, is the one to do it.
