Two billionaire industrialists, James Ward and Neville Robb with unlimited resources, use their Stock Exchange listed company, Southcape Holdings, as a front to cover a clandestine mafia type organisation which they name the Monastery. The organisation ruthlessly controls the drug trade, human trafficking and child pornography in the whole of England; to boost millions of additional pounds into their coffers. The tentacles of the Monastery encircled the whole of England, ruthlessly sowing bribery, corruption and larceny throughout their domain. Even the commissioner of Scotland Yard, Robert Mortley, could not escape their web.
Following the event of three brutal murders, executed by Striker Baum, the Monastery’s executioner, a young inspector from Scotland Yard, Owen Wallis, and a young crime reporter from the London Globe, Tony Crafford, are given the unenviable task of investigating the murders under impossible conditions. Over a period of many months, with their lives in constant danger, they get nowhere and Scotland Yard decide to close the case. Owen Wallis and Tony Crafford are still confident of a solution and they decide to continue their investigation in their own time. Did they have the resources and the ability to go against this powerful ruthless organisation and bring down their leaders? Would they survive the brutal executioner Strike Baum who was constantly breathing down their backs and who could strike at a moment’s notice? Only time would tell.
The story builds up into a gripping thriller from start to finish.
