What it’s about? (synopsis via Goodreads):

9781911583844“Corrupted is the fourth book in the Charles Holborne thriller series, and Simon Michael’s follow up to the bestselling The Lighterman.

Charles is building his reputation as a brilliant murder trial lawyer and living the good life with partner Sally. But he can’t escape the influences and dangers of the past, and finds himself drawn once more into the orbit of the notorious Kray twins. It’s not long before Charles is courting scandal and threats to his very life when investigating a sex ring that involves not just the Krays and the Mafia, but goes to the very echelons of the country’s power.

Simon Michael brings the past back to life across a beautifully rendered swinging 60s landscape, and delivers a gripping piece of thriller fiction that will excite any fan of the genre.”

How and when I got it: I pre-ordered this one 2 months before it was published so I’ve had it for over year on my bookshelf!

Why I want to read it: I love this series, especially the main character Charles Holborne, plus I really need to read this before the next one is out at the end of the year.
