More > there’s a storm at sea and the vessel is wrecked in the English Channel. Seventy five years later the chess playing detective, Davies King, investigates the connection between the escape of a handful of petty criminals from a prison van; a vicious murder, a sunken ship in the English Channel, a corrupt American politician, and ‘organised crime’. Will Britain’s most annoying petty criminals outwit the stressed-out detective? Faced with overwhelming odds, the exhausted Davies King must come to terms with failure and re-ignite ‘loyalty’. On the doorstep of bribery, corruption and kidnap, the detective recognises an emerging catastrophe which is likely to destroy the foundations of an Anglo-American agreement and destroy that special relationship.
