Synopsis: Clare Randell meets a man in a car park by helping him to recover papers that spilled from his brief case. She thought no more about it, but the police did, because the man was a paid assassin and had never been seen. Now Clare knows what he looks like and the killer already knows she must be eliminated.

Additional notes: Winner of the The John Creasey Memorial Award in 1979 for a first book by an unpublished writer. Originally published as Fair Game in the US.
