With an introduction by Jonathan Coe
1930s King's Cross, London.
When aspiring film actress Estella Lamare is found dead on the cutting-room floor of a London film studio, Cameron McCabe finds himself at the centre of a police investigation. There are multiple suspects, multiple confessors and, as more people around him die, McCabe begins to perform his own amateur sleuth-work, followed doggedly by the mysterious inspector Smith.
But then, abruptly, McCabe's account ends . . .
