_____________________

Secrets can kill.

Smooth-tongued divorce lawyer Richard Price is bludgeoned to death at his London home.

Scrawled on the wall beside the body: the number 182.

What does it mean? And who was at his front door just minutes before he died and while he was still talking on the phone?

Confronted with this most baffling of mysteries, the police are forced to turn to private investigator Daniel Hawthorne.
