What you need to know before your trail

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty’s daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour.

Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we’re talking about.

He’s been given an unparalleled opportunity.  Assuming he survives the week

Travel Guide

Travel to London

There are some interesting places of note in this novel:

Oriental Mandarin Hotel

“The actual building is comprised of four towers that the brochures called ‘pavillions’ running between the Oriental Mandarin Hotel on the east side and the Edinburgh Gate into Hyde Park on the west”

As a result, if you look at a floor plan it looks like two Star Destroyers have baked into each other during manoeuvres”


Eel Pie Island

People here are cheeky apparently. Buying a house on an island is just another investment opportunity

“That end of Richmond/Twickenham had become hipster central since the big money had started pushing all the TV producers and literary editors out of Hampstead and Primrose Hill.”

“Live on an island in the middle of the river, especially this river, you’ve got to put out some signs and favours if you want to prosper.”

Ludgate Hill

“The trees in the park still had most of their leaves, and the street was narrow and shaded and smelt of wet grass rather than the busy cement smell you get in the rest of the city”


Established in  1851, Harrods is the world’s largest family-owned corner ship. Although I  suspect it’s pretty unlikely that any of the Qatari Royal Family are doing a stint behind the counters” It’s also very close to the crime scene in the book.
