Who was Billy Blake - an alcoholic vagrant who quoted poetry and preached redemption - and why did he die? Mike Deacon, a cynical, somewhat discredited journalist, wants to know. He's intrigued by both Blake's death - could anyone really die of starvation in one of the wealthiest districts in London? - and by the beautiful woman who found him, Amanda Powell. Amanda Powell avoided the press then - why is she now obsessed by Blake and his life? Deacon begins his own investigation to find out if her interest could possibly be connected to her merchant-banker husband who absconded abroad with 10 million pounds, five years ago. He has not been seen since then, yet she has all the trappings of a very rich woman.
