Packed with intrigue, twists, conspiracies and dark humour, Cold Press is a hugely entertaining mystery set in 1993.
Clare Woodbrook is the enigmatic head of the Special Investigations Department at Britain’s leading daily tabloid. Her exposés are legendary, but she’s not without her enemies. Now, on the verge of unveiling her biggest-ever scoop, she arranges to meet her researcher Danny Churchill, to reveal all over lunch.
But Clare never shows, and later that day her car is found abandoned on the hard shoulder of the M25. Worse still, the enquiry is being headed up by DCI Graham March – the embodiment of police corruption, and the subject of one of Clare’s current investigations.
Danny sets out to find Clare, and enlists the help of his friend and flatmate – fashion photographer Anna Burgin. But as they embark upon an explosive trail of murder and intrigue, they realise they are not alone in trying to find Clare.
And soon their own lives are very much on the line.
