Before Jason Love – the West Country doctor with a passion for the 1930s American Cord car flies out to visit Charles Robinson, a fellow Cord enthusiast, in Cairns, Australia, someone in his Wiltshire village entrusts him with a straightforward mission: to find the truth behind a relation’s mysterious drowning accident off Cairns.
But when he arrives down under, the simple enquiry rapidly leads to other, more disturbing questions: what is the fearful secret hidden in Robinson’s past that has terrified him for years, and who are the shadowy figures he dreads will find him? Who is the man with metal hands who can see as well in darkness as by day, and why should a total stranger attempt to murder Dr Love on the top of Ayers Rock?
Jason Love, in his latest and most baffling case, must battle to find the answers to these and other questions as the wheels of suspense and surprise spin as fast as the tyres on his supercharged Cord.
