When Ryan Hunter, Deputy Head of Administration and Human Resources at Amherst Police Station, is called to a crime scene at half-four in the morning, he hopes at most for an interesting distraction from his job in Administration and Human Resources. What he discovers, however, threatens to destroy his career and ruin his best friend’s life. Who is responsible for these murders and just how far will they go to keep their secret?
The Least Convenient Suspect is set in Moat City, seventy years from now. America and China are at peace and have sealed their borders; Europe is at war in North Africa and Britain is once more the world’s largest economy. And Ryan Hunter is a small man about to get caught up in a monumental plan.
