A gritty, noir-type novel in the style of Dave Goodis and Elmore James.
Based on the London riots of 2011, and the emerging phone-hacking scandal.
Highlights an infamous Westminster paedophile ring that has been operating for years in secret.
Tabloid journalist Terry DeHavilland uses his society contacts to discover the guilty secrets of the rich and powerful, selling them on to the highest bidder. Now he’s dead and the question on everyone’s lips is - who killed him?
Some think his vicious murder might have been connected to his last assignment, a chilling investigation into a scandal that would rock Westminster on its foundations if it got out.
D.S. Todd is on the case and he now knows what Terry knew: children have been taken from state-run institutions to ‘Knoxley Hall’, a guest house in South West London, where they have been sexually abused by politicians and other high-ranking members of the British establishment. A lot of people know this - but now Todd has a list of names...
A fast-paced crime thriller set against the backdrop of real life events, Knoxley Hall has shades of noir and doomed characters as it rockets to a gripping conclusion. Crime readers, as well as those interested in modern day politics and scandal, will find this a novel to sink their teeth into.
