Then he learns the victim was a secret agent whose death was murder, and Herron is the chief suspect. To save his own skin, he must elude the police and the real killers while untangling the clues to a plot to assassinate the Queen.
First, he must locate a woman he glimpsed briefly at the train station, who may unwittingly hold the key to unlocking the conspiracy. But who and where is she?
He must also discover a connection between terrorists planning a coup against the British government and an unidentified object flying over the United States, if one exists.
Herron has three days. He should live so long.
