Springtime, London 1937. The abdication crisis has shaken a country slowly emerging from economic collapse. Poverty, anxiety and the likelihood of another war with Germany have created the perfect setting for a string of ambitious crimes. The men behind them are well connected, clever and ruthless. An insurance official and his old friend - a senior officer in the City of London Police - uncover one of these rackets. Certainties dissolve and the thin veil of respectability hiding the true nature of business is pulled aside as the trail leads them to the heart of the British Establishment.
