Description

“FROM THE BEATLES TO BLAIR (and some of the bad behaviour in between)” is JOHN RIGBEY's second Michael Gregory novel. It is story of wickedness and corruption in high places in government and in the police service and an account of whitewash and manipulation, of murder and of blackmail, both in the sixties and the present day.Following a professional hit on a retired detective chief inspector, Gregory is deputed to find the killer, at the same time tracing the origins of a large sum of money traced to the dead man. A second murder, this time in Spain, opens up the enquiry and in coming to terms with the past lives of both victims, Gregory has a detailed insight into the gangster world of the so-called “swinging era”. Meet “The Off Couple” and follow them to France and Spain as they go about their grisly business. Learn how they are tied into the web of blackmail enfolding a loose-living MP and prospective Blair successor, and how they come to a shocking end at the hands of the enigmatic Arthur. Under pressure to resolve the investigation in a manner which he finds unacceptable, at the same time attempting to come to terms with his own matrimonial disharmony, Gregory seeks comfort in the arms of black solicitor Cammie Cornish. Confronted with the duplicity and double standards of “those on the opposite side of Parliament Square”, finally, he is obliged to take drastic steps to ensure that justice is done.“BEATLES TO BLAIR” is written by a man who knows his subject: JOHN RIGBEY has truly “been there, done that and got the T shirt......”show more
