The book exposes both the vice and the madness lurking in the underbelly of the pathetic British neo-Nazi mummies' boys and tells the true story of close family members of the internationally renowned fashion designer Christian Dior and other French aristocrats. Terry Cooper has written with great candour, as he wants to 'put the record straight'; in so doing he drolely portrays his very British sang froid, along with his extraordinary ability to survive apparently unscathed by his own none too innocent participation in this devilish tale. Born in the Borough of Dagenham, Terry was an ordinary submissive working class schoolboy until he was 12 years old, when a "near death experience" changed his entire attitude towards life. Given up as lost by his doctors, when he recovered he quickly became a rebel against conformity, formulating his personal motto, "In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed is quickly put to death because he is different." A whole series of unforeseen events lead the young man into a parallel world of neo-Nazism, millionaires and mystics, where he is able to adapt himself to situations which he had never dreamt existed as a schoolboy in Dagenham.
Terry becomes the lover and intimate companion of the fashion designer Christian Dior's niece; Francoise Dior in all her French aristocratic British neo-Nazi penury. It becomes clear why the loss of the Dior family's fashion empire, which Francoise was anticipating inheriting, is something she has come to blame on the "great Jewish conspiracy". Things go from bad to worse when Francoise begins an incestuous lesbian affair with her own daughter; and then events take a turn towards murder. Christiane is all too easily, and twice, set up by her own mother (and the ever loyal Terry) to commit her own suicide. Her first attempt fails, but, at her second attempt, Christiane succeeds in hanging herself, using her mother's all too well prepared noose. Francoise Dior comes to blame her own further misfortunes on her role in the death of Christiane, and eventually, flat broke, she makes an aristocratic marriage with Mirleau. Not long thereafter Francoise dies an early death from cancer. At the end she is still erroneously assumed to be incredibly rich, and she is posthumously featured and even criticised as such.
Terry Cooper, who has now lived in France for 44 years, married a Belgian woman at the late age of 33 and recently became a grandfather, "the last step before the old folks' home." Still refusing to accept conformity, Terry continues a clandestine life of wild adventures.
