The Veiled One

Those photographs of Greenham Common, letters to the newspapers, that television interview, the meetings she attends, that’s commitment! That’s standing up and being counted when nobody else gives a damn about anything!

Chief Inspector Wexford

Wexford narrowly escapes death in a car bomb attack meant for his daughter, and Inspector Burden has to take over the case of a woman found dead in a Kingsmarkham car park.
