"May 1983. John Pigott, an overweight lawyer as noble in his intentions as he is a slave to his desires, finds that the man convicted for Clare Kemplay's murder might be innocent - and that all the people who could answer his questions are dead. June 1977. BJ the rent boy's life is in danger for what he knows, plagued by the horrors he has witnessed. Soon he must confront the possibility that the man purporting to be his saviour is the devil himself. December 1974. Maurice Jobson, the senior policeman known as "The Owl", is sucked into a morass of corruption where murder and cruelty present themselves as the only tools for survival. Nineteen Eighty Three is a dark, disturbing and intense finale to The Red Riding Quartet, one of the finest series in contemporary British crime writing."
