The Screen Guide

Ex-policeman Michael Stacey is determined to write the ultimate exposure of corruption in high places. Unhappily his Chandleresque cynicism and wry wit translate rather chaotically via 'the bottle', so a private investigation job has to be undertaken. As he searches for the missing daughter of a leading politician he finds himself in a labyrinthine world of intrigue, death and deception - a world destined for a highly explosive ending.
