When he spots a well dressed woman in her mid -twenties shoplifting in a west end store he gives her some friendly advice. Soon she has hired him to investigate her father's recent death. Her name is Elizabeth Pike the daughter of Sir Robert Pike.
Sir Robert Pike was a reclusive media baron. Not long before his officially recorded suicide an illegitimate daughter around Elizabeth's age was introduced to the family her name is Catherine. Who has lived most of her life in Australia. Since arriving in London Catherine has been receiving death threats. Did Sir Robert take his own life?
Soon Sharman is mixing with yuppies. Do you remember them? Whilst getting friendly with upmarket crumpet. However, their lives are in a mess just like other people get their lives messed up. Wealth does not always provide what you require. Love and to be loved would be a start.
As for the romantic interest. Fiona the model and occasional page three girl or Miranda the maid are more Nick's type rather than the Sloane ranger Pike sisters.
This takes a little while to get going. Then Sharman gets in the action.
It lacks the impact of the first two books. There is the regular indulgence of illegal substances, cigarettes and varieties of alcohol.
It's standard Timlin fare and for those of you that know his work will love every minute of this. The excesses of drink, drugs and debauchery are all in the book and the storyline twists and turns around the streets of South London at a rapid pace.
A really good read.
Here, general al round oik and ex-cop Sharman gets involved in the fallout from the suspicious death of a publishing magnate. For about 50% of the book, nothing actually happens other than chapters outlining excesses of food, drink and sex. It's occasionally interesting as a reminder of the excesses of the early nineties, but as a vehicle to drive a thriller the interest runs out pretty quickly.
For the finale, cue the usual guns and violence. Three books in, and already it's fair to say that if you've read one, you've pretty much read them all. Nasty and stangely boring all at the same time.
