When an old love returns into Troy's life, the Scotland Yard investigator finds himself embroiled in American politics when he agrees to help his old lover, who is currently the wife of a presidential candidate.

London, 1959: a city only just free of rationing, still littered with the ruins of war but straining at the modern age like a dog too long on the leash. Frederick Troy, Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard, is celebrating the arrest and conviction of "King" Alf Marx, East London's "Mr. Big," the toughest gangster in town, when a car bomb goes off, killing fellow detective John Brocklehurst. No one knows who is responsible - the boys from Marx's mob certainly aren't talking.
While recovering from the blast, an old flame from Troy's past appears. Kitty Stilton is now married to a U.S. senator, Calvin Cormack, the former Special Services agent who was Troy's partner back in 1941. With Kitty comes an unwanted visitor: Joey Rork, ex-NYPD turned private eye, hired to make sure Kitty's rumored liaisons with a mafioso rat-pack crooner don't spoil her husband's political prospects.
Then the gumshoe wants to know why Kitty has been spotted with Danny Ryan, a boxing promoter whose younger brothers are bucking to inherit King Alf's crime empire. Before Rork can find out, he meets a gruesome end, and bodies have started turning up around London.
