High jinks, low jinks, death, corruption and betrayal. An everyday story of newspaper folk. By one who survived. Summer 1986. Sunday Chronicle journalist Preston Wicks is on the brink of publishing the biggest story of his career; an exposť of corruption in high - and low - places. What has begun as a kiss and tell story about a wife cheated on by her footballer husband has become an investigation into allegations that he threw matches for a betting syndicate. The trail leads from the penalty spot to a casino tycoon who, it transpires, has a senior policeman and an MP on his payroll. To add to the turmoil, the Chronic's editor dies mysteriously in his office in the arms of one of Preston's colleagues. A heart attack - but is there more to it? He died with a fountain pen in his right hand - but the editor was left handed. Foul play? Who were the editor's enemies? He had many. Who is in the syndicate? Will Preston discover the truth of the death and expose the racketeers? And will he survive the tumultuous affair he has been having with the editor's secretary?
