Storm Centre by Douglas Clark
What if the culprit is on the inside?
Masters, recovering from a gunshot wound, is invited by his Scotland Yard chief to fill in temporarily as a lecturer at a police staff college. But there’s more to this appointment than meets the eye. The college has a delicate problem of its own.
Five years ago, a local boy disappeared. The only clue was a car with foreign registration seen nearby. Recently, another boy has disappeared; again the only clue is a foreign car; and it turns out the owner of the car is a police officer. Masters investigates, but when his colleague DCI Green is brought in for questioning himself, the intrigue takes a darker turn…
In Storm Centre Masters and DCI Green face their biggest and most thrilling challenge yet.
