When Donald Mason, a notorious drunk, walks into a London police station claiming to have seen an actress long believed dead, it's only the beginning of Inspector Sladek's problems. Haunted by the suicide of a vulnerable young woman and only a few weeks from his retirement, Sladek is reluctant to listen to the rantings of the one time actor. But when two friends of Mason are butchered and it looks like he is responsible, the inspector has little choice but to investigate. It isn't long before Sladek realises that Mason is innocent and that powerful figures in government and beyond are going to great lengths to hinder his own investigation.
Are Mason's claims that Dorothy Kite is still alive, true? And if so, is it really connected to the SAS led Oman coup of the early seventies? From London to the finale of the Edinburgh Festival, Sladek is racing against time to save Mason from ruthless assassins and from his own demons.
Although Echo of Death is a contemporary thriller it is inspired by real events. On 23 July 1970, Said bin Taimur was deposed and replaced by his son, Qaboos bin Said. The British involvement in the coup is now well documented but at the time, Edward Heath, the then prime minister, said it was a story never to be told in his lifetime. Qaboos bin Said remains in power to this day.Â
EOD also introduces Lenny Sladek, a second generation pole police inspector based in London.
