When Detective Chief Inspector Phil Benholme investigates the baffling murder of Nobel Prize-winning Professor Unwala, he is disturbed to discover that his own teenage son could be the prime suspect in the crime

Blackwell North Amer
Detective Chief Inspector Phil Benholme has been accused of being too soft. But this same fault has also enabled him to see both sides of every story - to observe in each crime committed the hidden motive, the unspoken intent, the unbridled emotion. With a sympathetic heart, he has excelled as an investigator but, some would say, failed as a man.
It is not until the death of famed Professor Unwala, in the study of his cluttered King's Hampton home, that Detective Benholme finds his trait most treacherous. For although the professor's death was recorded as a tragic accident, Benholme soon discovers the cause to be murder. Was the Nobel Prize winner a victim of violent robbery? A racist assault by Britforce troopers? Or did the professor know something about the Hampton Hoard, a collection of mysterious Celtic coins worth a small fortune and thought to be buried somewhere nearby?
