AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''Tell me about your first case Cliff. You must remember it.'

'Sure, but Christ, I haven't thought of that in a long, long time.'

'What was it about?'

'Back then? Divorce - what else? But there was a bit of perjury, fraud and murder as well.'

'The early 70s, and in Cliff Hardy's first case there were perjury, fraud, murder, crooked cops, lawyers, PIs and a call girl - scarcely an honest citizen in sight.

Hardy was caught in the middle with a client he couldn't trust and nothing but questions for guidelines. In the end his survival became more important than the answers.' (Publication summary)
