Daniel Swallow is in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes. A PR stunt involving a hot air balloon has gone horribly wrong, and now he is jobless and broke. And single. Meanwhile, everybody else's life is flourishing. Miles is earning telephone numbers in the City, and has a green-eyed, enigmatic new girlfriend called Beth. Clive is in hot pursuit of an Indian princess called Amrita. But the only thing in Daniel's life is his new career: lucrative, mysterious, mostly nocturnal - and highly embarrassing, if the secret should ever get out. And then one day he is summoned to an appointment in Mayfair, and his life veers of course forever . . .Comic, poignant and unexpectedly romantic, Rescue Me is a portrait of a generation for whom relationships are everything (and probably too much) and of two restless and heartsick souls trying to save each other's lives.
