Rocco and the Price of Lies
Murder by suicide? Three senior government officials - a judge, a politician, and an ex-police chief - are all dead by their own hands.
Inspector Lucas Rocco finds himself once more working for the Interior Ministry: undertaking an investigation meant to avoid a government scandal and ignoring unpalatable truths. He's soon convinced that a common denominator must be at play...
Rocco uncovers top-level fraud, theft and deception. And when he narrowly survives an attempt on his life, he realises that he has nothing to lose by bringing the truth out into the open - whatever the risks.
"An excellent book, in an excellent series, from an excellent writer."
"Adrian Magson does a wonderful job in painting a brilliant picture of his characters, the police procedurals and the operation of the underworld.... The pages turn themselves until I found myself reading the very last chapter."
