Charged with a murder he didn't commit, his life is in ruins …

And there's nothing he can do about it.

HENRY SILK, star of a popular TV soap, is an actor with a bad-boy reputation. When police link his car to the body of a prostitute found in woods near Nottingham, he is dismissive: they must be mistaken. But with no alibi, no memory of the night of the killing and an increasingly watertight case against him, his disdain turns to horror when he is arrested and charged with murder.

JENNIFER COTTON, the young detective constable who uncovers much of the damning evidence, has no doubt about the actor’s guilt until an unexpected revelation turns her world on its head and leaves her questioning everything about the case. Could Silk possibly be innocent?
