1952, London. When eighteen-year-old debutante Rose Bellamy Gore goes missing in a seedy Soho jazz club the prime suspect is young sax
player, Lindon Claremont. Lindon hightails it to Brighton to seek the help of his childhood friend, Vesta, who works with ex-Secret Service Mirabelle
Bevan. When Lindon is taken into custody the two women dive into London’s underworld of smoky night clubs, fast cars and lethal cocktails to
establish the truth.
