9780060810290: Wild Justice

Fleet Street in the 1980s during a heat-wave, a setting which positively thrives on intrigue and where the phrase 'stab in the back' is synonymous with a journalist being summarily sacked, often whilst in the pub. The Daily Post has a new proprietor who seems determined to drive the paper down-market, promote extreme political views and ride roughshod over the trades unions and industrial relations. Gossip columnist Rain Morgan feels far from secure in her job, but neither does anyone else, especially when the new proprietor is found, quite literally, stabbed in the back at his desk. During a chaotic summer, life in the offices of the Daily Post becomes even more chaotic than usual, with invasions by protestors (both left and right wing), a heightened sense of megalomania, jealousy and paranoia, the discovery of typewritten death threats and the intervention of the bizarre, publicity-seeking psychic Ruby Dobby. And then knives, similar if not identical to the murder weapon, begin to be delivered to various members of staff, including Rain.
