A classic early novel from Peter May situated among the
political intrigue of Brussels, Belgium, in 1979--now
available in the United States.
There are two men on their way to Brussels from the UK: Neil
Bannerman, an iconoclastic journalist for Scotland's
Daily Standard whose irate editor wants him out of
the way, and Kale--a professional assassin.
Expecting to find only a difficult, dreary political
investigation in Belgium, Bannerman has barely settled in
when tragedy strikes. His host, a fellow journalist, along
with a British Cabinet minister, are discovered dead in the
minister's elegant Brussels townhouse. It appears that they
have shot each other. But the dead journalist's young
autistic daughter, Tania, was hidden in a closet during the
killings, and when she draws a chilling picture of a third
party--a man with no face--Bannerman suddenly finds himself
a reluctant participant in a desperate murder investigation.
As the facts slowly begin to emerge under Bannerman's
scrutiny, he comes to suspect that the shootings may have a
deep and foul link with the rotten politics that brought him
to Brussels in the first place. And as Kale threatens to
strike again, Bannerman begins to feel a change within
himself. His jaded professionalism is transforming into a
growing concern for the lonely and frightened Tania, and a
strong attraction to a courageous woman named Sally--drawing
him out of himself and into the very heart of a profound,
cold-blooded, and infinitely dangerous conspiracy.
