The Game

By Gerald Hammond

Keith Calder, the engaging rogue who has appeared in Gerald Hammond’s previous novels, is in his element in this new adventure.

Millmont House, not far from Edinburgh, is the headquarters of a group of companies under the name of Personal Service, and Millmont House offers the oldest service – it is a high class and very expensive brothel. In one of its luxury apartments there is substantial evidence that a murder has been committed and it is clear that an antique pistol was the weapon.

But there is no body, in fact no clue as to who might have been killed, never mind who was the murderer. Into this discreet, wealthy atmosphere comes Keith to privately investigate the crime and, with little finesse but with great promptitude, he manages to establish who is dead. He also disturbs a hornets nest of local government corruption and blackmail.

In the tradition we have now come to expect from Gerald Hammond, this is a highly entertaining whodunnit, full of character, detailed background and exciting incident.
