Blood Brothers

1963. A badly mutilated corpse is discovered on the site of the new Centre Point currently under construction in London's West End. Fingers and toes severed, it has all the all-marks of a gang-land killing. But DS Harry Barnard is not completely convinced. He is also anxious that a key witness in the up-coming trial of Georgie Robertson, a sadistic bully he has known since they were East End evacuees together. Could there even be a connection? Meanwhile his girl-friend, photographer Kate O'Donnell, is dipping a toe in murky waters on an assignment with a national newspaper crime reporter which has Barnard worried in more ways than one. It is not until the threads begin to unravel that anyone realises quite how much immediate danger they are all in as Robertson makes a bid for freedom and revenge.
