Karl Martindale

Once one of Fleet Street's finest, Karl Martindale is under pressure to pull out some amazing scoops to preserve his legacy and inflated salary.  After months of conducting his journalism via Google, Karl realises that he needs to do more. 

A shooting at a gig seems like the perfect opportunity, should his younger rival not beat him to it. 
In order to maintain his reputation as a worthy journo, Karl homes in on the friends and family of those involved in the gig shooting mystery, making offers they can't refuse and ones that he often can't keep. 

Some time into the case, it becomes clear that Karl needs to pick the right side to remain supreme.  Whoever the right side may be.
