Sir Charles Huxley, a former government minister, kept a dark secret — a secret he should have taken to the grave when he died in 1999. His son, William, now lives an uneventful life in his father’s shadow. A middle-aged bachelor, all he has to worry about is his seemingly pointless job as a backbench Westminster politician, and his lonely existence — or, so he thought.
One evening, William has a chance encounter which sets off an escalating series of sinister events, culminating in a damning revelation about his father’s past. That revelation drags William into the darkest of blackmail plots.
With his blackmailer having cunningly closed every exit, William is trapped, and faces personal and financial ruin. That is until an odd job man working at his local bar steps forward and offers help. With no alternative, William is forced to join his peculiar saviour on a desperate mission to stop his blackmailer, and unearth the shattering truth about the wrong’un.
