Someone is blackmailing a local supermarket chain. And getting away with it, thanks to a very clever payoff method involving hole-in-the-wall bank machines and a bit of glaring police incompetence. When the blackmailers descend on Eddathorpe, Robert Graham is called in. He thinks it's an inside job - and sets out to prove it. He doesn't know the case is going to escalate from fraud to murder; or that its unravelling could change his life...

The corpse in a plastic sack is the perfect climax to Detective-Inspector Graham's bank holiday weekend: the east coast is sweltering under the August sun, the town is full of trippers and the deceased has been dumped on the busiest part of the beach. Vince Lowther, ponce, welfare scrounger and theif, was the kind of promising young low-life no-one at Eddathorpe nick will miss. But Graham and his colleagues are unprepared for the many shocking revelations surrounding he death of this busy entrepreneur. As the enquiry develops, a discredited psychological profiler from the Midlands sniffs a connection with a series of sec crimes committed elsewhere. But, as Graham sees it, he's overlooking on inescapable fact: Lowthe was undoubtedly a boy, the other victims were girls...

Someone disliked Eddathorpe's distinguished industrialist Sir Jeremy Blatt enough to bash him on the head, pack him into a lorry and despatch him on a North Sea ferry...Detective Chief Inspector Robert Graham has too many suspects: several wives, one of them Sir Jeremy's own; the exploited employees of his frozen-chicken empire; a son who despised him; even a policeman...And that is without taking into account the animal rights protests and the unwanted help from Ron Hacker, Graham's favourite ex-detective superintendent, newly installed as Blatt's security chief. Graham picks his way through a sorry story of cold-blooded murder, warm blooded love and unchecked greed to uncover a solution that surprises even him.

One cocked hat, one red robe trimmed with black rabbit and one silver-gilt chain with a gold and enamel knobbly bit at the end...Eddathorpe's mayoral regalia has disappeared in the possession of Councillor William 'Klondike Bill' Lynch, a colourful drunk who has devised the perfect revenge on Eddathorpe's new mayor, his much-detested second wife Muriel. But the joke's not funny when Muriel Lynch turns up dead, with the regalia - and Klondike Bill - carefully arranged in the next room. And less funny still when Robert Graham's least-loved superior officer arrests Bill for a murder he probably didn't commit...

Years after she died, her murderer is still unpunished. Six of her lovers still have lives blighted by unspoken suspicion. Exiled to seaside Eddathorpe in November, Detective Inspector Robert Graham expects to have lots of time to brood about his failed marriage and his formerly promising career. Instead, he finds himself drawn into the Draper case, and unwittingly taking the lid off a suprising variety of old scandals. Some of which involve senior policemen...
