In the middle of a General Election, someone is targeting former members of hte ultra-exclusive Merrion Club, youthful hedonists addicted to excess transformed into pillars of the political establishment.  Next in the killer's sights is charismatic, ruthless Edgar Carlton, the man poised to be the next Prime Minister.  But, with power almost in his grasp, Edgar will not stand idly by while his birthright is threatened.
When Inspector John Carlyle finds a  body in a luxury London hotel room he begins a journey thorugh the murky world of the British ruling classes which leads all the way to the top.  Operating in a world where right and wrong don't exist and the pursuit of power is everything, Carlyle has to find the killer before Carlton's people take the matter into their own hands.
