The Convenience of Lies
A brilliantly artistic young girl, Ruby Ross, is kidnapped near her council estate home and Francis McCall, a journalist in crisis, chances upon her aunt – a woman who was also his first great love.
McCall is persuaded to investigate Ruby’s disappearance. But he is drawn into a dangerous conspiracy of spies, double agents and corrupt politicians whose intrigues will have him running for his life.
It is a follow up to the author’s acclaimed debut novel, A Place of Strangers – a book which one American reviewer said put him “…in the line of successors to le Carré.”
