A vicious robbery at a secluded Brighton mansion leaves its elderly occupant dying, and millions taken in valuables. But Detective Grace rapidly learns that there is one item, of priceless sentimental value, that her powerful family care about above all else. And they are fully prepared to take the law into their own hands, and do anything, absolutely anything, to get it back. Within days, Grace finds himself following a murderous race against the clock that leads him from the shady antiques world of Brighton, across Europe and back in time to the New York waterfront gang struggles of 1922, chasing a killer driven by the power of one man’s greed and another man’s fury. Your heart rate will quicken, your palms sweat and your brain be in a state of febrile desperation to find out what happens.
