Midnight Seyle is a Private Investigator who is down on his luck until a face from his past offers him a job he can't refuse.

Investigating a simple matter of infidelity Midnight finds himself in a more complicated matter of extortion, murder and revenge, in places he didn't want to go, meeting people he didn't want to see.

Beautiful women with troubled histories, cold blooded killers and a matriarchal mastermind compete for power and money across continents.

The race is on as disparate people find their way into Midnight's world and only he is chasing them all.

Alex Baldock left university in 1996 with an Honours degree and no idea of what to do.  He worked in retail and a bank, spent a year in Australia, found wine, fell in love, got married and through it all occasionally sat down and wrote or went out and played golf.

He lives with his gorgeous wife, Bonnie, in a Lincolnshire village.
