A new PI for South London in England, is asked by a pretty young woman to provide her with an ALIBI for a night barely 16 months earlier. It is the start of a trail of deception, lies and ultimately death for the people involved.
It looks like an easy case for Damien Palmer to solve. When a woman in her early thirties knocks on his door one evening and asks him to find her an alibi for a particular evening just 16 months previously, Palmer thinks it will be a routine case.
He could not have expected the case to leave a good friend fighting for her life, nor could he have expected to be seduced by the charms of a masseuse. Equally, the trail of deaths that lead to the conclusion of the investigation could not have been foreseen.
Not only is Palmer good at his job, he also has a reputation as a lover, and both reputations he is prepared to defend to the utmost of his enormous ability. Welcome to the world of the modern private investigator.
