Former Detective Inspector John Raven, seated on a London jury, dissents from the majority opinion determining the fate of a naive German au pair girl, Helga Heumann, and her "accomplice," Piers Pelham, both accused of drug smuggling. Pelham walks, Helga commits suicide, and Raven decides to clear her name. Using Helgas's incriminating diary as bait and employing Pelham's ruthless self-centeredness to advantage, Raven cleverly draws out the vicious Iranians behind the whole operation. Raven's American houseboat neighbor, photographer wife, and efficient German lawyer add interest. Forceful prose contributes to the effectiveness of this established series. REK
