London is the richest and most divided city in Europe. Extremes of wealth and poverty exist cheek by jowl. Ade, an investigator into financial corruption, is brought face to face with the arrogance and indifference of the rich. She falls in love with Paul, charismatic and vulnerable, who works with street homeless people and learns that decency dwells where you least expect it – and how hard it is to live a good life in a corrupted world.
Ardent Justice is a literary thriller with a cast of financiers, vampires, art critics, tax inspectors, street homeless people, fraudsters, city police and TV pundits, and of course the city itself, many-layered, treacherous and heavy with opportunity.
