Ex Ireland rugby player and w successful businessman Jim O'Conr is shot dead, point blank range, in the car park of a restaurant where he is hosting a family celebration. DCI Percy Peach is brought back from holiday to head up an investigation that has got where. It seems Jim O'Conr had some rather unpleasant business contacts, many with the motive to get rid of him. However, when law-abiding Dominic O'Conr is also killed, within days of his brother, Brunton CID can only assume there must be some link between the two murders, so should they really be looking closer to home for the culprit...?
