Description

For Crowley’s plan to work he has to depend upon one of London’s Most Wanted ambitious gangland boss Tommy Fowler who presiding over a crumbling empire can still get you anything you want – for a price. And what Crowley wants is a young man Peter Tait in Pentonville Prison under sentence of death for murder. Convinced of his innocence but unable to prove it his only chance of survival lies in the hands of one detective struggling against the odds to win a desperate appeal that has little chance of success.
