Can Joe and Edgar ensure his survival? In the glittering and luxurious setting of the court, Joe must track down a clever murderer - all under the mocking and hostile eye of the ruthless Chief of State Police. And more deaths will occur before he finds his way through the maze of intrigue to corner, at last, the palace tiger.
