Max Matham is a self-employed freelance forensic accountant living in a quiet village in Buckinghamshire. Della Jont is a hard-nosed businesswoman who presses Max into working for her, investigating alleged financial irregularities at an orphanage in East Africa.

Hannice Knight: a life in three parts
Hannice Knight had been running the African operation of his father’s global business for many years, a business that he would inherit on his father’s death. When a freak accident at home robbed him of the use of his legs, he and physiotherapist Sophie Deigh tried to bring into his life the excitement and adventure he missed in his formative years, due to the need to be tied to the business. He learns to dive and starts diving shipwrecks off the Hawaiian coast, where he discovers treasure that is much more recent than the wreck. Those who hid the treasure; the proceeds of crime; don’t want Hannice to make his discovery public and will go to any lengths to prevent it. Trouble ensues, and Hannice and Sophie end up in hospital. A number of other adventures follow including sky-diving, power-boating and camping, and a half-brother he never knew about, but even these can’t lift Hannice’s spirits. What, or who can? Will the developing closeness between Hannice and Sophie come to anything, and what of the rumoured advances in stem-cell technology? As Hannice’s body recovered, he became ever closer to Sophie, and found himself drifting into a relationship with her that neither had anticipated or intended, and for which neither was fully prepared. This book follows Hannice’s adventures as he tries to juggle business, hedonism and family life.
