9780060115029: The Empty House

The blue Vauxhall was seen going up the track to the Devon cliffs until it was obscured by a clump of trees. But the noise of it going over the edge was unmistakable and final, and at Rackthorn Point the sea holds on to its trophies. Dr Alex Wolfe is presumed dead as a result of this tragic accident. But how certain can one be when there is no possibility of recovering a body; and when the missing man is a vitally important geneticist at a Biological Warfare Research Station, and when he's a man who only recently took out a life insurance policy? Peter Manciple, an insurance investigator, is sent down to investigate - but Peter finds more questions than answers.

Product Description:

Dr. Alexander Wolfe, a top genetic scientist – a key figure in British Biological Warfare Research- seemingly plunges over a cliff in his car. His body is never recovered and it emerges his life was recently insured for a considerable sum. Accordingly, Peter Manciple, an insurance loss adjuster from a fairly cautious firm, is sent to investigate. There is romance, possible gang involvement in arson, and a potential job offer in store as Peter sets out to find out if Wolfe is really dead in a most dangerous and complicated mission.
