It's for the country. You are our man, Charles. You know how these things are done. Getting rid of people, we mean.
Wealthy businessman Charles du Randt is persuaded by friends in very high places to rid Britain of a number of troublesome individuals, who are seemingly beyond the law. To carry out the task he recruits a former soldier, Marc Dampier, who must first 'disappear' himself, to ensure absolute secrecy. One by one the targeted individuals meet untimely deaths, apparently from heart attacks. Only one person, a former girlfriend of Marc Dampier, suspects that something untoward is going on but her efforts to get at the truth are blocked at every turn. This is hardly surprising, given who was behind the original conspiracy.
None of this could possibly happen, you tell yourself. Not in a country like Britain. Not with people in such high places. But as the story takes a totally unexpected turn, you think again. Is it really so impossible?
( Two more thrillers with the same cast of characters and dramatic twists at the end of each story have been written but will be saved for another day)
