Corrupted is the fourth book in the Charles Holborne thriller series, and a worthy successor to Simon Michael’s to the bestselling The Lighterman.
Charles is building his reputation as a brilliant murder trial lawyer and living the good life with his partner, barrister's clerk Sally. But he can’t escape the influences and dangers of the past, and finds himself drawn once more into the orbit of the notorious Kray twins.
It’s not long before Charles is courting scandal and threats to his life when investigating a sex ring that involves not just the Krays and the Mafia, but goes to the very echelons of the country’s power. And then there is his affair with a film starlet...
As in the previous three Holborne novels, Simon Michael brings the past back to life across a beautifully rendered swinging 60s landscape, and delivers a gripping thriller that will excite any fan of the genre.
