A highly original first crime thriller, with a wonderful cast of characters, opens with the baffling death of a world famous actor--and his relationship with his guide dog may hold the key to the mystery In the stinking mud of a great tidal river, a body lies half submerged. Sir Tommy Best, adored British actor, has fallen to his death through a hole in the walkway above. The saintly Sir Tommy was friend to the starving and penniless, to kings and stars. He was also totally blind and reliant on his brilliant guide dog, Suzy, but where is she? It seems unimaginable that Suzy would have led him into danger, so is it murder? When she finally turns up, she is stressed and tense. Chief Superintendent "Fatso" and Detective Chief Inspector Ned turn to their police dog handler, Kate, aka "The Dog Tart," who suggests they find Suzy's trainer Nick Parsons, in the hope that he can get the dog to lead them to the truth. The search for Nick Parsons culminates in a highly unusual plan, in which Ned will become blind for one night and with Suzy the guide dog, reenact Sir Tommy Best's last fateful walk. The truth which they uncover is utterly horrible.
