However Nash has got other, more pressing worries at the moment. With the extremist politicians provoking attacks on migrant workers and fanning racial hatred, Nash must prevent an explosive situation from boiling over into full civil unrest.

Should you protect somebody convicted of such an unspeakable crime? Nash’s tiny group of detectives doesn’t have much time to spare for convicted murderer Vickers. However while Nash gets more acquainted with the facts, doubts begin to grow about Vickers’ conviction.

And once one of the visitors gets murdered, Adam and Eve (Harriet’s sister) work on solving the crime.

When her estranged husband gets murdered, she’s the prime suspect and appeals to Adam Bailey and her friend Eve Samuels to help her. However while they investigate, more people get killed and before long, Eve and Barbara find themselves in grave peril.

While the clock ticks down, Adam races in order to rescue them. Is justice going to prevail, or is the grim prophecy of the rhyme going to come true again?

Now it is about twenty years later, and there are some new stars on the pop scene, including Trudi Bell, a teen sensation. When her manager is offered a song for her new album, he is convinced that the performer on the demo is Gerry Crowther himself. Sure that there’s more to it than mere musical similarities, he gets Eve and Adam’s help to find the truth. However some folks just don’t want the truth to come out at all.
