As the editor of a popular left-wing tabloid, Dennis Luxford has made a career out of exposing scandal and destroying reputations. When he is offered the chance of breaking another government 'sleaze' story and boosting the circulation of his paper still further his hesitation seems inexplicable. But at the heart of this particular scoop lies the kidnapping of a ten-year old girl: Luxford's daughter. To save the life of his first-born child, whom he has never even seen, Luxford must reveal the details of his brief affair with the child's mother on the front page of his newspaper. But this liaison was no ordinary one-night stand. For the woman involved is Eve Bowen, now the Under Secretary of State for the Home Office. And even when it becomes clear that her daughter Charlotte is missing, Eve refuses to involve the police, insisting that her child's diappearance is simply a ploy, however despicable, by Luxford to bring down the Tory government.

If you're a fan of Inspector Lynley, you will definitely find this a good book. A bit wordy ( although I didn't notice any overuse of the 'f' word ) A good story about ideals corrupted by self-interest and about the sins of parents visited upon their children.

This book has too much garbage and I would not recommend this book due to the "f" word and the taking of the Lord's name in vain continually. Also the sexual content is very graphic and crude. This is not entertaining and detracts from the plot.
