1968, London. Called to the site of a gas explosion, Detective Sargeant Cathal Breen unearths a shocking discovery beneath the rubble: mind-bending paintings by Bridget Riley and Peter Blake --- and the mangled body of one Jacob Pugh, a playboy god in the art world. With Detective Helen Tozer, Breen must infiltrate the artistic demimonde of a volatile and increasingly murderous city before any more lives are left in ruin.

Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen believes that the victim of a strangulation may be one of the many Beatles fans who regularly camp outside Abbey Road Studios. With his reputation tarnished by an inexplicable act of cowardice, this is Breen's last chance to prove he's up to the job. Both he and Helen Tozer, a young policewoman assisting him with the case, navigate a world where conservative tradition gives way to frightening new freedoms --- and troubling new crimes.
