The latest novel from the master spy novelist John Lawton follows Inspector Troy, now Scotland Yard's chief detective, deep into a scandal reminiscent of the infamous Profumo affair.
England in 1963 is a country set to explode. The old guard, shocked by the habits of the war baby youth, sets out to fight back. The battle reaches uncomfortably close to Troy. While he is on medical leave, the Yard brings charges against an acquaintance of his, a hedonistic doctor with a penchant for voyeurism and young women, two of whom just happen to be sleeping with a senior man at the Foreign Office as well as a KGB agent.
But on the eve of the verdict a curious double case of suicide drags Troy back into active duty. Beyond bedroom acrobatics, the secret affairs now stretch to double crosses and deals in the halls of power, not to mention murder. It's all Troy can do to stay afloat in a country immersed in drugs, up to its neck in scandal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"John Lawton is so captivating a storyteller that I'd happily hear him out on any subject." -- Marilyn Stasio
"[Lawton's] work stands head and shoulders above most other contemporary thrillers, earning those comparisons to Le Carre." -- Clea Simon
"Unputdownable narrative of spying, sexual intrigue, political scandal, and murder . . . a haunting novel transcending the bounds of genre fiction." -- A. N. Wilson
"Flawlessly re-creates the tensions of a society . . . teetering on the brink of a social and sexual revolution . . . Lawton's trick is to take the threads of history and weave them into his own tapestry."
"Lawton's uses the mitieu and ambiance of a time of social and ethical turmoil to write a graceful story that is peopled with historical and fictional characters and features. . . . Highly recommended." -- Roland Person
