The Cold Light of Dawn

As dawn breaks on the coast of Brittany, a retired colonel finds the body of an attractive young redhead.

In the search for her identification the French police pass her picture to the CID at Scotland Yard and it is from there that an enquiry spirals into action.  As the facts come in slowly, but surely, Detective Chief Inspector Harry Tipper and his assistant Charlie Markham, begin to form a picture of the dead woman and her life, and it’s a very strange one at that; provoking sympathy on the one hand and revulsion on the other.

The enquiry leads eventually to Whitehall and the highest echelons of the Diplomatic Service, causing the CID to call upon the powers of Special Branch, and even MI5, in their bid to unravel all the strands of this compelling mystery.
